We all love Christmas, but many of us don’t care for the busyness of December. There are parties to attend, parties to plan, presents to shop for, presents to wrap. There are basketball games (if you have tall sons like me), concessions to sell at, and tournaments to drive to. There are cookies to bake, candy to make, stockings to stuff, and houses to decorate. It’s a busy time.
So when to you find time to write? If you work outside the home like me, you either get up a little early or stay up a little late. But with life so busy, my energy lags and I want to do neither. I think sometimes we have to give ourselves permission to not be quite as productive as we would really like.
It’s okay to only write 500 or 250 words instead of our 1000 a day plan. It’s okay to edit only a few pages instead of a chapter a day. Give yourselves some slack. It’s only for a season, and January will come before you know it and present you with time to rest and recharge. Your fingers will fly across the keyboard with all the renewed energy!
Enjoy the season of God’s love and gift of His Son.
