Tis the Season ... to be FRAZZLED!

It's that time of year again, the season when what has to be done to prepare for the holidays and all that you want to do to savor every sweet moment conflicts with the work that needs to be completed.

This year, give yourself the most important gift of all ... a bit more time.

That might mean bribing an older child to keep the smaller ones quietly occupied so you can accomplish your tasks quicker. It might mean redeeming an assortment of take-out food coupons instead of cooking a few nights each week. Record rather than watch your favorite TV programs and get some extra writing done so you can "bank" your usual working hours to spend on holiday fun.

Even though authors have to be magicians in terms of multi-tasking, we can't actually manufacture extra hours in the day or days in the week.

With a bit of creative ingenuity, we CAN stretch the hours we have to include lots of guilt-free holiday fun!

May the Muse be kind!!

So true, Susanne. I'm doing the Nanowrimo this year (again) and I have deliberately set aside time to write. And with the holidays coming that difficult to do.

Thanks for the inspiring words!

It sure helps to have a supportive family that understands our need to write. Our struggle is for computer time. Somehow it all works out in the end.

An author's life is always a matter of ever so masterfully juggling an impossible number of "balls" ... especially this time of year!
