A lot of books (The Lion, the Witch and the Wardrobe, for instance) focus on Winter in a magical or supernatural way. My own novel A Shadow Story begins with a Winter storm.
How many books have you read with Winter as a theme or integral part of the setting? How does it affect the tone of the book? Does it help to make it more magical/spooky/uncomfortable for you or the MC?
|Winter Nymph 6x2.5 inches, air-dry clay|
I proceeded to take tons of pictures of her to try and capture the glittering effect. This is as close as I got.
The nymph is made out of Crayola air-dry clay, untreated, unpainted, and left sitting in a china cabinet. I've never seen anything like it before!
