Cute couple, huh? Mistletoe sure is working its magic. Mistletoe will do that.
Guess what I'm up to today.
Did you guess "Listening to an old Julie Andrews Christmas CD while sniffing bayberry candle and catching a mini lighted Christmas tree in your peripheral vision?" Did you guess "Getting a headache from the bayberry candle?"
Wow. You must be psychic, cuz that's exactly what I'm doing! And you probably know why, too.
But since I'm here anyway, I'll tell you why. Because I'm trying to write my Christmas novella for this year's Legend anthology. The working title is Under the Mistletoe and it's the story of Charles and Dorothy McClain, the parents of my hero in Christmas Collision.
The parents, you say?!?!
Yep. This story is set in the early 1970s. I lived in a small town in the early 1970s, so maybe that will help inform my writing.
Along with the headachey candle, collection of Christmas music, lighted tree--and oh yes, the jingle bells on the door. Trying to appeal to the senses, you know, to immerse myself in Christmas. It was suggested to me and seems like a great idea.
Of course I'm craving sugar cookies right now. And maybe some egg nog.
