Oh, and Christmas Trees. I don't know if I've ever said this on my blog, but apart from having an excuse to watch all of my nutcracker ballets, movies, and on-ices, putting up a Christmas tree is my favorite part of Christmas.
Which brings me to where you need to have your character encounter today.
Whether you're in the process of putting it up, or just relaxing under the twinkling bows, meet your character wherever you have your Christmas Tree.
Oh, and for added fun, and since Christmas is a time of love and giving, I have two conditions for the character. First, it can't be a character from your NaNo (seriously, you're burnt out on that novel, focus on something else for a change) and second, it has to be a villain.
So, good luck!
