But there's one aspect of the season I don't particularly care for: the lack of time I have to write. Basically, everything I love about Christmas takes away from my other love: writing. This lack of time is frustrating, and can get downright annoying. All I want for Christmas is the chance to plop my butt in the chair and type. And type. And type.
But, my type, type, type is replaced by the hype, hype, hype of the holidays.
But it's all good. I try to remind myself that the baking, shopping, wrapping, planning, decorating, and party-going will only last a few short weeks and then it will be back to a routine and productivity (and with a Spring deadline for Sylvie & Gold, I won't have much choice!) When I start to get whiny, wishing for more time to write in the next few weeks, I'll try to remember the reason for it all and readjust my focus.
So that brings me to a question for you. How do you find time to write during the busy Christmas season? I'd love to hear your tips and tricks for adding words to your manuscript while still accomplishing everything you need to do.
In the meantime, I'll be shopping. And wrapping. And decking the halls. And baking...
