The holidays are upon us, but don’t use that as an excuse to shut down your computer completely. Keep writing, even if on a modified schedule. Keep jotting down your ideas because they’re like gold. Keep your mind open for new ideas, so that when the excitement all dies down on January 2, 2009, you’ll be ready to hit the ground running.
In the meantime, I wish you all a very Merry and Blessed Holiday season!
