Why I am looking forward to Christmas...

It is not just because of presents and spending time with family. The music, the lights. I love all that. No - this is something different.

The past two weeks I have been so busy I haven't written anything in my WIP. And I am falling woefully behind in my critiques for my critique partners.

So I am looking forward to getting some time off work - time I hope to spend writing and critiquing.

For this week I did not accomplish any of my goals.

On a side note - I keep having this dream that I get a 60 page rejection letter from Shadow Mountain Publishing. It is making the task of checking the mail...frightening.

What are you looking forward to this holiday season?


  1. I'm falling super behind on my critiques too. I feel so awful about it but hopefully the week after Christmas will allow me to sit and read read read!

    And still crossing my fingers for you with Shadow Mountain!

  2. I'm looking forward to giving away the presents I'm making. :-)

  3. I'm behind on critiquing too! I'm going to take a blogging break next week becasue of it! And sorry if I put that nightmare in you head after last weeks critique group! I promise it won't be that huge, lol! :)

  4. @Cassie - Thanks! And I hope you get a lot of reading done.

    @Misha - I am making some homemade gifts this year too. It is more fun - but I have to plan ahead more... which does not always go well for me :)

    @J.A. Bennett - LOL - Can't remember when I started having the dream. But in my dream I think - 'How did they get all that from 3 chapters?'

  5. I think it's great that Christmas makes you think of time to write! That's when you know you are a confirmed and bona fide writer.

    As the dream of a 60-page rejection letter -- well, now that you've gone through that fright, nothing can compare. Anything else will feel like small potatoes. Be undaunted. :-)

  6. @Elizabeth - True! Now I can look forward to getting a small rejection letter. Because it won't be so bad :)
