A little magic. A little make believe. A fun escape. Each day Disney offers thousands of guests a chance to forget their day-to-day worries, the current economic crisis, family issues, health concerns.
Yesterday, I was surrounded by people on a mission--a mission to transport themselves into another world.
Sort of what I do as a writer. With a short story or a book, I hope to send my readers on a vacation much like Disney but with a realistic setting, characters and storyline.
As I floated through the waters in the Pirates of the Caribbean and blasted through Space Mountain, I forgot. I forgot about the bills yet to pay, the decisions to make, the holidays to prepare for.
But there's another way to take your readers away from their problems and discouragement and concerns this year--through sharing the real meaning of Christmas.
Are your inspiring your readers to reach out for the permanent joy and blessings only to be found this Christmas through Christ?
