I’m in a rather sappy, overwhelming sentimental and entirely grateful for my many blessings mood today.
The holidays sometimes does that to me.
It seems the nearer we get to Christmas, the more my emotions are stirred.
Not that it is a bad thing. Sometimes I think we need our emotions stirred, our thoughts jumbled, our hearts pricked. It helps keep us in tune to our feelings, gives us depth, helps us be not only better as a person, but better at our writing. So much of writing, at least mine, us capturing emotion, detailing experiences and feelings. What better way to write realistically than to experience it first hand.
So fully experience the feelings of this holiday season – good and bad – and let them help fine tune your writing craft.
