The Holidays = Article Ideas in Abundance! By Angela Hoy
As we all deck the halls, light the Menorah or Kinara, or simply stare in awe at snowflakes prancing through the air, it's the perfect time to start keeping a list of memorable holiday moments that will make great articles in print next year. Pull out a small notebook and keep a journal of each holiday happening. Just a few moments of reflection and note-taking at bedtime will provide you with plenty of material! Then, in January, review what you've written and start composing queries.
