Musea has an annual tradition - a Christmas story for the December issue. Did you miss any of them?
There is a lot I like to put into each short story, and not much room to squeeze it into - only 8 pages per Musea issue, with the front page being a photo! That means everything has to happen in 7 pages.
I try to write, so that each story first HAS a story, a good plot. Then some interesting characters caught up in something challenging, some connection to Christmas, and finally a deeper meaning behind the top story. Maybe even a couple of layers of meaning. Hopefully the stories take you somewhere, that you feel better about visiting.
Here is a summary of the last ten years or so. Enjoy. - Tom.
