Secondly, snow changes things. The landscape is different, the light is different. Things that stood out before are now invisible, and other things that went unnoticed are now in prominence. A writer needs to be an observer first and foremost, and the ability to see things from a different perspective is a valuable trait.

Even if you don’t like snow, I encourage you to take a moment and observe the changes in the world. (The positive changes, not just the negative ones. We all know that snow makes driving more difficult). Beauty can be found anywhere.
