Ah, the holidays. So much to do; so little time . . .
I don't know about other writers, but I get stressed with all the festivities and preparations that go along with the season. And I get more than a little frustrated with everything interfering with my writing time. Yes, I know I should hold my writing sacred and all of that. But life DOES get in the way, especially this time of year.
So, I've resigned myself to let my real writing go this year until after New Year's Day. Then I'll be setting goals and making resolutions, and I hope this blog will help me keep on track throughout the year.
But this doesn't mean my writer's brain will be in hibernation over the holidays. Oh no. I'm going to be observing friends and family at parties and watching everyone interact. Even the best of families have their troubles. As a result, there's mucho fodder for story conflicts, characters, GMCs, etc.
And I plan to make the most of it. I won't do any actual writing, but I'll be stuffing my writer's brain to the brim with great story material. Come January, I'll be chomping at the bit to get back to the writing.
