So, turkey time is already here, and you all know what that means. Christmas is just around the corner.
What does that do to your writing time? Inspire it? Lessen it? Encourage you to finish before the end of the year?
Let’s face it, the clock is ticking; our time is limited.
Me? I begin to panic. I have contest entries to finish judging. Two new clients to work with in order to get their proposals out, and another whose work I just can’t put down for more than five minutes at a time. I have edits on my own book to finish, and a new Christmas anthology that just released and needs marketing.
What do I do first?
Well, I could and should take my own advice.
Relax, enjoy the overeating that will inevitably happen (contrary to all the good intentions) on Thanksgiving, enjoy Black Friday, whether at home or on the run, and watch Christmas movies by the dozens.
Take time to enjoy the holidays. If you aren’t on a deadline, then accept that you need some down time. Family time.
TIME TO EAT THE WHOLE PUMPKIN PIE! At least a couple pieces. Don’t put your family and friends aside to meet your own self-inflicted goal. Cut yourself some slack and enjoy this most wonderful time of the year.
