Writers write...not terribly profound but rather simple good advice.

Then, it's also easy to make all of those things excuses to put writing on the

From Dicken's "A Christmas Carol" to Charlie Brown, the holidays provide endless fodder for the writer paying attention. The infamous family dinners, the tree, the Menorah, the Festivus Pole (re Seinfeld), the personalities, outfits, family heirlooms that make an appearance once a year. Don't miss the inspiration - remember, you're a writer and a writer writes!
