Merry Christmas to those of you that celebrate, and Happy Holidays all around.
If you don't believe in this sort of thing, I can only say that I hope you at least believe in the power of story. Because this one is the ultimate hero stories when you really think about it. Frodo saved all the peoples of Middle Earth. Harry Potter saved all his friends and companions. But Jesus saved all the world and all the people in it throughout all time. And that's pretty freakin' amazing.
So again, Merry Christmas and happy writing!
