I have a confession to make… I let the holidays interfere with my writing.
There, I’ve said it. Now let the healing process begin.
I actually went away with the best of intentions. I backed up my writing to a USB Flash drive, I packed away my laptop and my mouse. I put my iPod into the case.
It wasn’t until we were 30 minutes from home that I realized that I had left my power supply at home. Oops! Ah but for the best laid plans…
Still, my sister-in-law (who graciously let us stay at her house) has a computer. There were even moments when the kids weren’t on it playing Runescape. Still, I never quite summoned the energy and motivation to do any writing.
Despite my hard-set goals, I wasn’t able to put down a single word or edit even one line of text. Somehow, I’ll get over it because what I DID manage to do was have a nice relaxing week that put a few new memories into my head and gave me a much needed break. And somehow, that’s enough. Now I’m ready to push forward.
I hope your holidays were as fruitful.
