Funny thing. I’m over the midpoint of my work in progress, and I’ve run into a problem I haven’t encountered before. About half of the book takes place during the Christmas season, though it isn’t a Christmas book as such. As most everybody knows, even if you don’t live in Alabama, the weather outside has been frightful and not in the Christmassy way. It has been hotter than normal for even north Alabama, and it has been quite a chore trying to write about chilly December when it’s so hot outside. I will prevail.
