The holidays are fast approaching which means our writing time gets crunched. Burning the midnight oil becomes more common as writing during Thanksgiving and Christmas holidays takes our normal writing time away.
Writing crunch time means we will do more with our family and friends and less writing for ourselves. This is not a poor choice by any means, but just a change of venue as we need to spend more time with our families and friends during these memory making experiences.
Crunch time can also mean what we munch on while we are writing. The stuff we might snack on when we write helps us through our writer’s blocks. I love crunching on trail mix when I’m trying to think. Some how keeping my mouth chewing keeps my mind busy on how to improve what I have written. Emotions are high as well and sometimes we can write more heart felt dialogue or narration with holiday music playing in the background.
So sit back for holiday time and try to relax and enjoy the ride. Family and friends are hard to come by so don’t disappear to your computer too much. This is what life is all about.
