The idea behind this blog is to Just Write! Getting into the daily habit of writing is important if you want to produce new copy and new marketable work. And that's what writers do; we write and create marketable products.
But the holidays wreak havoc on BICHOK (butt in chair; hands on keyboard). And unless you are under deadline, there really is no reason to stress out over not writing and producing in these last couple of weeks as the year comes to an end.
Family and making memories, baking, cooking, shopping, decorating, parties and friends--these are important, too. Very important.
Achieving balance in a writer's life is difficult and during the holidays even more so. Don't stress out right now if you're not keeping up with your writing as well as you think you should.
Living real life is important for your writing life. It fills the well, rejuvenates and revitalizes your work. So enjoy the holidays!!!
Come January and the New Year, we will be refreshed and more than ready for BICHOK!!!
Okay, so my goals for this week:
* Continue working on online class lessons.
* Read comments on my newly returned manuscript from my other beta reader.
* Work on guest blogger schedule for coming year.
Speaking of enjoying the holidays . . .
My daughter and I decorated the Christmas tree and had a mega bakathon over the weekend. We baked dozens of cinnamon rolls and piggie-in-the-blankets and fried up a batch of glazed donut holes. Mmmm . . . good!!!
Happy Writing!!! Happy Holidays!!!
