That's right; while the sun has been (mostly) shining, I've been channelling all things festive - mince pies, Santa, reindeer, fairies, snow... you get the picture. It's been almost six months since I've worked on my Christmas novella, but I've dusted her off and dived back in.
It's quite hard channelling all things cold and frosty when the sun is shining so I've needed a little bit of help. While this has mostly taken the form of Christmas music (I LOVE Christmas music so I'm delighted to have an excuse to listen to it mega-early), I've also taken to drinking my cup of writing-enabling tea in a festive mug.
I've also popped a little silver Christmas tree decoration on my pin board, as I thought putting a full-on Christmas tree with decorations in the living room was a *bit* over the top.
I usually listen to North Pole Radio when I'm writing Christmassy things (because it's usually around Christmas) but it's not on up and running at the moment. Luckily, there's lots of Christmas stations on AccuRadio, so I've been making use of those. All I need now is a mince pie...
