During the cold winter months, outdoor activities are limited, and reading becomes popular.
Once the sun shines, the birds sing, and the flowers bloom, the great outdoors beckons.
My questions today focus on seasons, and how authors can relate to them. As usual, I'll ask a few questions, and offer my answers. Then, it's your turn to respond with your answers in the comment section.
1. What's one way to work seasons to advantage?
Write books focusing on a particular season or holiday. Better yet, do a series spanning the seasons. Mona Risk's Holiday Babies Series is a great example. To date, she's written Christmas Babies, Valentine Babies, and her latest offering, Mother's Day Babies.
2. What's another way?
Pay attention to seasonal changes, and how they affect nature, your activities, your moods. Enrich your stories by including these observations. If writing about an unfamiliar place, do research instead of making assumptions. If you guess wrong, readers will notice.
Now it's your turn. Please offer a way to work seasons to advantage, or expand on mine.
