Preparing for the holidays has reminded me of all the things I love about the holidays. And all the things I don’t like about the holidays. Fortunately for me, there are more good than bad things to think about. I know it's not that way for everyone. Life is filled with good and bad, as our writing should be.
Have you ever read a book where nothing bad happens? What about a book where everything bad happens and nothing good? In those cases I know the author was trying to get lots of tension but instead they delivered an unending stream of trouble and unhappiness. There’s no relief, leaving the reader too drained to want to continue reading.
Like in life, a book needs good and bad. A book with all bad is just as bad as a book with all good.
I'm traveling for the holidays so I'm not commenting as much on blogs but I'm still around, lurking. Hope you are all having a great holiday season!
