Happy Friday! There are officially 22 days until Christmas. I’m sure we are all excited for the glut of presents about to come our way. I am asking Santa for Harry and David Gummy Bears. Yes, really. I will be finishing up my Christmas packages that need to be mailed out this weekend. Once that is out of the way, the season is smooth.
I love this time of year. Not the snow and cold and ice so much (yuck) but the idea of it all: rebirth, giving, family, cookies. I just wish I had more time. With all the hustle and bustle and such, I don’t have as much time to write as I would like. I have the first draft of Book 2 in the Shadow Dancer series almost complete, and I have the last bit of revisions to complete on my novel, A Howl in the Night, yet I can’t seem to find more than an hour at a time to sit down. I can’t get motivated in that amount of time. It’s frustrating me.
Now that it’s cold and icy and yucky, I am wondering what do other people do to get motivated. Not even just about writing but about anything. Usually I will go for a walk, or soak up some sunshine, but that’s out. All there is outside is bitter cold and grayness. Not much to inspire out there. Besides, I can’t go out into the woods right now, as Deer season has begun and my luck I would end up shot. Sometimes I exercise, but I’m just not in the mood for that. No, Yoga either.
So how do you get motivated? What works for you? A handful of chocolate? A bit of meditation? Come on, I need some ideas! Help a girl out, will ya?
