Are you having a white Christmas? Does the sight of that snow make you want to run? If the latter, I guess your holiday cheer is more fear. Can't say that I blame you though. Just looking at it and thinking about driving in it make me want to return to sweat inducing summer. But then that would be rushing life, so I guess we sit back and enjoy what comes.
That also means there is no issue with taking a break during the holidays from writing and/or work and just enjoying yourself. It will be there after the festivities are done. Enjoy the moment and don't think when you will write, work, etc. You will.
Whether it is far down another road like this or a few days after all is said and done over the festive season. You will. Remember that and be in the moment. Simply enjoy whatever you celebrate, however you celebrate,(unless you do some weird satanic sacrificing ritual. That would be bad. Just a little FYI), and whoever you celebrate with.
But don't enjoy this much or things may go astray.
Do you plan on writing over the holidays? Any good plans over the holidays? Do you feel like you are doing nothing or letting your writing/self down if you do take a break?
Finally, here is a cheery note when all the cheer is through this holiday season. Are you going to enter? Think about it after the cheer and polish those pitches. Lots of time.
HAPPY HOLIDAYS and NEW YEAR
