Countdown to Christmas—You Don’t Need a Computer to Write a Really Good Christmas Story

 

christmas-carol“Marley was dead: to begin with. There is no doubt whatever about that. The register of his burial was signed by the clergyman, the clerk, the undertaker, and the chief mourner. Scrooge signed it: and Scrooge’s name was good upon ’Change, for anything he chose to put his hand to. Old Marley was as dead as a door-nail.”

A Christmas Carol by Charles Dickens,1843

  1. My favorite line: “This must be distinctly understood, or nothing wonderful can come of the story I am going to relate.” Talk about setting the scene!

  2. Just amazing. Especially when you think of the amount he wrote. Imagine the paper and ink. Great Expectations, Tale of Two Cities, Oliver Twist, David Copperfield, Bleak House and on and on and on. All scribbled out by hand. All that creative story telling genius flowing from brain to hand to page. It is miraculous and evidence of what we in our family call, “a God thing.” Great post for the season of miracles and Merry Christmas and God bless us, Everyone!
