December 7 question – It’s holiday time! Are the holidays a time to catch up or fall behind on writer goals?

Jayden: I think it’s bad. I get out of my routine so much that I fall behind on everything. Even though I have more time off of my day job, it’s hard for me to keep a writing routine when I’m not working. It’s weird, honestly, that when I have more free time, I get less done. I guess it’s just a mindset.

Richard: Probably about neutral? There’s a bit more free time to write, but I’m also usually recovering from Nano. I usually hit January pretty hard though.

Do you find that that you catch up or fall behind during the holidays?

  1. I know what you mean. When I worked, my available time was so limited, I used every second of it. But now that I’m retired, I get distracted by all the free time and Netflix . . . I’m blaming Netflix!

  2. Swapping from one routine to another (“holiday time”) and dealing with the push of NaNoWriMo concluding can really slow things down. I hope you’ll be able to get back into the swing soon (or put your characters in one… 🤣).

    I wish you a merry holiday ⛄ season, and a New Year full of peace, joy, and creativity.
