Last week I talked about how much I love the holidays, and I do. But the holidays also can be overwhelming too. So much to do, so little time…and that’s why we need to celebrate the simple things in life.
So what are these simple things?
For me, the simple things so far this season are: a fuzzy blanket, sparkly lights, sappy holiday movies that any other time of the year would make me roll my eyes, red velvet stockings hanging from the mantle, an advent calendar, and an ivy candy dish that belonged to my mom.
I don’t need bling, or presents, or crazy crowds to celebrate the joy of the season. The little things are enough for this writer. And that can be said in writing my stories as well. What I think connects a reader to a character are all the little things that make that character come to life.
So what are your simple things this holiday season?
