Writing Christmas Books... When It's Eighty Degrees Outside
I'm working on finishing up my second book in my Forest Grove series. I will let you in on a secret... it is a Christmas story! Yay! I'm obsessed with Christmas. I had hoped to have this story done by last Christmas, but well... life. It didn't happen. I'm hoping to have it released for Christmas in July.
Do you watch Hallmark's Christmas movies in July? I love them!
Given that it's summer in my part of the world right now, I use some tricks to get me in the Christmas spirit. Listening to Christmas music, watching Christmas movies, and reading Christmas books definitely help. I also like to think about some of my favorite Christmas traditions and incorporate those into my book.
What are your favorite Christmas traditions? Do you have anything particular that you do to get in the Christmas spirit?
Here is a YouTube video I use when writing!
