Plus, you may choose to be notified when my new book launches, "The Joy of Writing Journal: Spark Your Creativity in 8 Minutes a Day"!
I originally wrote this short piece to help the writers in my mastermind group keep their writing momentum going during the holidays. I realized that it would be timely to share with the wider community.
A few ideas for making sure you keep writing while family is around and festivities abound:
That should keep your writing momentum for the holidays and beyond!
And if you’re still holiday shopping, consider intangible gifts. I recently took a 1″ x 1.5″ book of handmade papers and wrote a word on each page for my friend. It came to her at a very challenging time (her mother is passing away and siblings are not supportive of her). She told me this gift made such a difference. I only wrote a word on each page, describing my beloved friend. Could you do something similar? Write your loved one a poem, a playful song (which you can videotape and post on youtube for them) or something else personal. It may be the most meaningful and moving gift they receive.
And for anyone looking to gift you something special, you can send them this article in Market Watch with some fun ideas, and a quote from your favorite (I hope) book coach! More gifts for writers can be found in last week’s post.
Have any suggestions for writing momentum during holidays? Please share your tips.
Have a lovely holiday and may your writing momentum–and muse–be with you!
