Holiday Writing

(image link:

The holidays can be difficult on life in general, let alone a person's solitary writing time. First it was Thanksgiving and a month later we have Christmas (or the many other holidays that different countries and religions celebrate). At my parent's house we have Thanksgiving, Christmas(mostly secular family focused stuff though some of them go to church and what not) and on the rare occasion do something for New Years.

Considering I haven't written much over the last month, I'm thinking about writing on the holidays or at least trying to write. While I don't follow the rule of "absolutely must write every single day" (obviously) I also don't mind writing on holidays as long as it doesn't take away from spending time with family.

Do you write during holidays or do you take a break?

Happy Holidays to one and all!

I'm taking my netbook on holidays but I think I'll have reading time rather than writing time. It's a time I feel I must give my family seeing as they only have half my mind usually.

I'd be setting myself up for disappointment if I wanted to write!

Merry Christmas!

Thanks for responding, L'Aussie. Yeah, I'd hate to miss out on family just in the name of writing. Merry Christmas to you too.

This yeah I didn't do any writing as I was on a family vacation. But that doesn't mean my head wasn't thinking about it! LOL. Hope your Christmas was a good one!
