This is a busy time of the year for most people and no less so for any writer. Beginning in December, I added more to my already full plate and returned my attentions to an enormous science fiction project that had been shelved for nearly a year – one I have been eagerly anticipating sinking my teeth into this project for some time. As well, I continue my rewrites of BLUE MOUNTAIN, along with magazine submissions for short stories. To add to the recent chaos that is my life, I have taken on an additional commitment outside of writing. All of this does not include time spent madly scurrying about, decorating, shopping, and preparing for the upcoming holiday season. Yet, I’m excited about it all, even planning for the holidays, and most of all, thrilled that progress on my sci-fi trilogy has resumed once again.
Even though my life is ramping up for an incredibly hectic December and even busier New Year, I still plan to enjoy the season. I truly love this time of the year (except maybe for the cold weather) and love the peace and harmony it evokes, despite the hurriedness of it all. During the holidays I become a small child all over again and the excitement of it helps me deal with the additional workload. So, no matter how crazy life might become for you now, and in the future, take the time to enjoy it!
Happy Holidays and all the best for a wonderful 2011!
