where characters become friends

After spending a year writing about Camdyn, it was odd to go back and begin writing about things that happened earlier in her life. The way she might have become friends with Trina. The brother/sister relationship she had with her brother Charlie. Interactions with her grandmother.

Writing about Christmas in July is not ideal. I wouldn't recommend it. But coming up with new Christmas traditions is fun, as is imagining the way Christmas looks in other people's houses.

Watching Camdyn and Trina's interactions had me thinking about kindred spirits, and it made me realize that I like writing about friendships just as much as I enjoy writing about love. 

Before Camdyn went looking for her roots, her best friend Trina found what she was looking for in Camdyn's brother Charlie. What is sweeter than a Christmas story?
