As those of you who have read my blog for years know, my husband is a Veteran of the Armed Forces. Every Christmas I play this video in honour of those serving for their country around the world. Thank you for your service and thanks to the families who miss them this Holiday Season.
Happy Holidays to all of you! May you enjoy this season with family and those close to your heart. Here’s a video I love and usually post every year with special thanks to those of you whose family members are serving this Holiday Season.
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.
As you all are reading this I’m on my way to Southern Minnesota to spend time with DH’s family.
This year I’m thankful for my spouse – he’s a great guy and super supportive of this writing thing I do. My two awesome girls who are spending thanksgiving with their fiancee’s in Texas and Montana respectively.
