Are you like me when it comes to January? Do you look forward to productive hours doing what you really want, but can’t find the time for right now?
I don’t go in for New Year’s Resolutions much. For me, making resolutions is a recipe for failure. For January, I would rather plan and organize and chisel away at my favourite jobs, one of which is writing.
With Christmas looming and all the festivities taking over my life, I’ve had to put some things on hold. I’m desperate to get back to my writing, but social events take precedence. Christmas is wonderful, but when January comes, and all the hullabaloo is over, I’ll sit down at my computer knowing I have hours of uninterrupted time ahead of me, and I’ll smile. The words will come racing out onto the monitor. They’ll jump into chapter formation, and smile back at me when I reread. Yes! This is what I’ve been missing.
December: Family time, friends visiting, Christmas celebrations.
January: Quiet time, thinking time, writing time. TIME is the key! Having time to write is precious. I can’t wait to get busy at the keyboard again.
