Writing in the holiday mood

We don’t all start out like Scrooge in the holiday season. Some of
us think of the turkey and the time to sleep late and giving to others and start off rather like the end of Dicken’s story. BUT
then there is the violence and death and starvation slinking after us like so many pale ghosts. It’s hard to find jingles for the holiday toasts. The first blaze of light on the menorah or the
smell of a pine tree brought into our living room should remind us

About christineemmert

Words have been part of my life. First the spoken word in my time as an actress and increasingly the written word in my shift to writer. I write across the genres, but mostly as a playwright and poet. My interest as my life extends is in the realm of tethering myth to the mundane reality where I live. In this vein I have expanded into stories and novels. Presently I look at how myths taken from past cultures can affect us today. Hence my novella of Lilith which is out on Kindle . I live in the Eastern Woodlands where I try to incorporate nature into my many writing projects. We are so in danger of losing that link to our very planet!
