It's Okay


I know quite a few writers stress out around the holidays. Obligations tend to suck up our time even more so then the other days and our writing moments are usally one of the things we feel we need to put aside. I've learned after many years that my writing doesn't only occurr while typing words on this keyboard. I'm always thinking about my plot, my characters motivations or actions, and about their conversations. I can do this while I'm baking, cooking or cleaning the bathrooms. I can always find a second to jot myself a note which I can come back to.

Don't stress. Enjoy your family and friends. Remember, "Home is where the story begins."

I'm going to take a few days to enjoy my life. I hope you do too. Have a wonderful holiday and remember to take a moment to give thanks for those who surround you, support you and for the talent you've been given.


Join me on Friday Nov. 26 at the Ruby Slippered Sisterhood, , where I'll be asking a Black Friday question.


  1. I always have story thoughts spinning in my head. So, even if I'm not actually sitting at the computer, I feel like I'm making some progress...thinking things through, considering details, digging deep into a character's thoughts.

    Happy Thanksgiving!

  2. Happy Thanksgiving to you and your family too, Debra.

  3. I hope everyone had a wonderful holiday. Today, I hope to spend a few hours curled up with my DH, watch my team play football and read a little.

    Stay safe while traveling everyone.
