I’ve returned from a holiday in early December and now Christmas is fast approaching. I’ve gotten most of my shopping done, and need to mail presents.
My goals for the month of December were small. I knew with NANOWRIMO behind me and Thanksgiving being the sign that Christmas was fast approaching, I would feel the rush of the season.
So I put my submissions to agents on hold until the new year. When I do my goal setting for next year, I’ll review whether I still want an agent or if I want to navigate on my own. I’ve been slowly writing during the season to maintain momentum. But if all I do is my Morning Pages, so be it.
I also set a goal to read during the season. I’m a fairly avid reader anyway, but I wanted to look at the season as well…holidays. I’d lost my job and I didn’t want to stress about writing when I might be blocked because of stresses I hadn’t anticipated.
My goal – to keep the season simple and enjoyable.
