What Christmas taught me about writing

It’s very ho ho hard.

Freezing cold outside and plastic decorations inside.

What we are supposed to celebrate is re-created with artificial models.

Reality can be mirrored with a little bit of craft.

And the adversity outside my window in the form of rain, poverty, over stretched resources and insane business just giddies the process on.

Everything is possible.

Because it’s Christmas.

We have an excuse.

Being extreme is creative.

That is what Christmas has taught me about writing.
