Holding the Season at Bay – a Losing Proposition

Here it is, closing in on the Christmas season, and I am feeling more like the Grinch. Not that I want to steal anyone’s involvement in the holidays… except my own.

Forty hours a week at my job doesn’t leave a heck of a lot of time for editing my novel. The work on the book is going nicely but I am constantly being pulled away to do seasonal activities. You know, Christmas parties, baking, shopping…

And I really love the shopping! Sigh!

Still, “Grinch-ness” isn’t in me. So, I suppose I shall have to pull myself away from the editing – and I so wanted to have it done before the end of the year! – and get into the spirit of the season.

After all, Christmas comes but once a year.

Everything else is a workday. Even if working on something that’s really all for me.
