Snowstorm Coming

Word has it that a snowstorm is heading straight for South Jersey! Time to stock up on hot chocolate and writing ideas. ๐Ÿ™‚ 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. ๐Ÿ™‚ย 

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.ย 

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. ๐Ÿ™‚

    • Ooh, a snowman! I love snowmen! But if I’m going to stay warm . . . . Hmmm . . . Have to think about that one. It’s a tempting thought. ๐Ÿ™‚

  1. I love snow, too!! Something about seeing it fall and cover everything makes me feel like a kid again. And my mother-in-law lives on a perfect sledding hill. Woo Hoo!

    But first, I’ll take the opportunity to finish my Christmas sewing since we’re not going anywhere for a couple of days. How nice of God to provide me with extra time! ๐Ÿ™‚

  2. Street? Road? I live on a PATH! It’s called a “lane,” but it is a half-mile long, 7-foot wide gravel drive through our 14-house development. We have about 18 inches of snow so far. Since our road is neither owned nor maintained by the state, we have to dig ourselves out. And the state-owned dirt road at the end of our private path is among the last to be plowed.

    But I have hot chocolate and creamed chip beef with toast — my snow comfort foods–and I’m enjoying the beauty of looking out from this mountain over a world of white. Oh, and joy of joys–I just checked 3 Terri Blackstock books out of the public library! YES!!!

  3. Just looked out my front window. We have about 6-8 inches of snow so far, and it’s still coming down. Plus, it’s windy and blustery! A real nor-easter! ๐Ÿ™‚ Will send some pictures later.
