Happy Thanksgiving from my fictional family to yours:
Holiday scenes are the best! In my upcoming novel, The Lemonade Year, one of the final scenes takes place on Thanksgiving Day. There’s a little grave digging, an unexpected dinner guest, and plenty of family awkwardness.
Pickles, pizza, and a little cemetery dirt make for a funny catharsis for our main character, Nina. Ex-husbands, mashed potatoes, and new beginnings are all on the menu.
I love to write holiday and other family gathering scenes, but I can’t help myself, I just have to make them go hilariously wrong. What’s your favorite Thanksgiving scene? Here’s one of mine. Friends and family and forgiveness…. and cranberries.
Happy Thanksgiving everyone!
