A Christmas Carol
It took Dickens about six weeks to write "A Christmas Carol." Tiny Tim and Bob Cratchit helped speed up the process. When Dickens wrote he “saw” his characters much like the way that young Ebenezer Scrooge saw the characters from the books he had read. As Dickens wrote "A Christmas Carol," he said that the Cratchits were “ever tugging at his coat sleeve, as if impatient for him to get back to his desk and continue the story of their lives."
