30+ Freelance Writing Markets to Keep You Busy Over Christmas

If you're anything like me, you find holiday times great for getting more writing done. Everything is closed so there is nothing to do but stay home and write (or go to the park, or the beach, or anywhere else outdoors to write if it's hot where you are, like it is where I live).
