Writing & Christmas, not necessarily in that order

Over on Writer Unboxed, a blog I discovered by judicious linking some time ago, there’s a great post about Christmas and about writing.

Scrooge, move over!  Grinch, look out!  Here comes Victoria Holmes:

I don’t like Christmas. In fact, I make Scrooge look like Santa. I don’t put up decorations (I think I’m allergic to the aesthetic properties of tinsel) and only grudgingly display cards, counting the days until I can reasonably take them down and dust the shelves whereon they stand; however, I have been known to come over all Martha Stewart and make gift tags from them for future festive seasons. It’s easier to admit them over the threshold if I know they’ll be sacrificed to a higher purpose.
