Ah—the holidays. It’s a time to relax, enjoy friends & family, reflect on our blessings, and eat. I trust you had a marvelous day?
Shortly after Thanksgiving, the reality strikes us that Christmas is on its merry way. I enjoy the festivities, but not the shopping. Crowds send me into a panicked state. I don’t know why, but maybe it wouldn’t be so bad if people weren’t rude during this time of year. Is the toy, electronic device, or stuff really worth the irritation? If holiday cheer and glee accompanied the shopping experience, maybe it would be less cumbersome. Also, since I’ve worked retail most of my life, I take pity on the cashiers enduring those endless lines, and snippy people. I’ve been in their shoes, and I wouldn’t EVER want to work in retail again!
Okay, on with where I’m at! Guess what? I finished chapter 16, and am currently writing chapter 17. Finally, my characters get to move to different sceneries. Believe me, it is VERY difficult to write about cold weather, when I live in a desert. Seriously, I stuck my head in the freezer several times, to get the feel of being cold. Some of my close friends managed to attain a full-body snowsuit, so it could help with the visual aspects of writing. I’m happy to envision different terrain.
In this chapter there’s a bit of excitement. Our hero proves his valor – risking his life for another, even if it is just a dog. Next, my characters are going to Denmark. It wasn’t a planned destination, but research revealed the modes of transportation only go to Copenhagen. Even though the characters won’t be staying long, I am excited for the opportunity to research Copenhagen, Denmark
