Season Based Writing Themes

As a writer, I am always looking for a theme for my stories and books. There is a natural cycle to the world, and addressing this cycle gives me natural themes - Spring, Summer, Fall, Winter. Each season has perceptions that are attached to it - some are universal, some are personal. All can be the basis of a good story.

Each holiday out there - whether it is religious based, seasonal based, country or culture  based - has a deep level of stories/themes that we can base our work on.

If we are writing short stories, this is one thing. If we have an idea for an upcoming holiday, we can get the story written, and get it out there in time for the holiday.  If we are writing a book - that takes a little more planning. I had to change the focus of one of my books because I was going to use a Christmas theme, but the timing wasn't right for getting it written, edited, out there, and promoted.

Don't be afraid to use any theme that you want to - they all have something to say!
