I get up early. I write 250 words every fifteen minutes—that’s my challenge to myself. And I reward myself for making the goal of 1000 words a day. When I come home, I sew. I don’t write more than 1000 words a day, and I wonder if that’s what’s making meeting my goals easier. I think writing at this pace keeps the story flowing in my head. (AND I hope I didn’t just jinx it.)
Now, I haven’t started Christmas baking yet—that will be next weekend. And we draw names for Christmas now, so I only have a couple of gifts to get. And I have two more weeks until the break, and Fred will be off that first week. We’ll see if I can keep it up!
What are your tricks to writing during the holidays?
