Planning Ahead - Holiday Stories
Holiday pieces must be completed months before publication. At the end of the special day, write down the events of the day. Nestled within each holiday are stories that touch the heart, inspire or make us laugh. Catch them while they're fresh, and file it within your "ideas" folder to make writing that holiday story easier later in the year. This small step captures realistic details easily forgotten but which give your holiday piece a fresh realism drawing your readers into the scene.
