Word has it that a snowstorm is heading straight for South Jersey! Time to stock up on hot chocolate and writing ideas. 🙂 Although I hate the cold, I love snow – as long as I don’t have to drive in it. We live on a street where the snow is rarely removed. So it can look like Siberia on my street when, in reality, life is back to normal everywhere else. 🙂
Just as now is a good time to write Christmas material, it is also a good time to write winter-related material. Editors plan their editorial calendars anywhere from six to twelve months in advance. Some prepare even farther in advance. So I always like to write material, if possible, during the season in which it occurs. The natural setting puts me in the mood. It’s a bit challenging, for example, to write about Christmas in the middle of summer.
So think about some winter-related ideas that would make great articles or stories. Those ideas are all around you. Ask God to open your eyes to them, and He will. 🙂
