The Holiday Wrting Crunch



Hello Everyone,

Hope you had a nice Thanksgiving. I spent time with family and friends and ate, drank and was merry. To me, it doesn't get much better than that.

Although I love the holidays, they can be hectic, leaving little time to complete the final two chapters of my novel. Since the middle of November I've only averaged one day a week to devote to my WIP. Talk about your holiday writing crunch!!!!  To make matters worse, there were days when the body was willing but the mind wasn't.  The more I tried to force the words onto paper the worse the draft became.  Needless to say, it's been slow going.  I'm  beginning to wonder if I'll ever complete my novel.  After four and a half years of working on it I'm anxious to move on.  I'm keeping my fingers crossed that things will slow down after the holidays. 

I've set a goal to have my novel completed in it's entirety by the beginning of summer.  I know this is ambitious, editing and re-writing takes time, but one can hope.  If any of you overcame the "holiday writing crunch" I'd be interested to know how you did it. Where did you find the time???? Wishing you all a very merry Christmas.  Until next time my friends, happy writing.
