Hi friends and followers,
With Christmas around the corner, I imagine you are experiencing the same challenges that I am – lack of enough hours in the day to achieve everything. Like me, you may have too many items on your daily to do list.
Despite telling myself I will write a certain number of words each day, I am way behind. For some reason writing has become the last task of the day at the moment.
Tonight I am telling myself, ‘Tomorrow I will start the day at the laptop.’
Does this sound familiar?
Perhaps it’s because it is the December festive season?
If so, maybe we are being too hard on ourselves?
For me, I think this is so . . .
. . . So, I open my mailbox, and read my weekly NowNovel blog.
I hope you find Brigette’s blog informative.
