The ultimate writer’s block – family holidays

It happens every year. From mid- November to January 3rd the looming family/country holiday swoops down and grabs helpless writers from their chairs and sends them spinning into turkeys, carolers, Christmas trees and malls.
The two choices usually are; loose six weeks of work and wish you were writing a holiday story because of all the insanity that is happening around you, or loose six weeks of work glad you got a break from your routine.
BUT, writers write and shoppers shop. A good idea is to find time late at night after Bed, Bath and Beyond closes, or early morning before the home improvement store opens, and get half an hour’s worth of words written.
I find that starting the day already having my fix makes the day’s expenses and partying more tolerable.
Ho. Ho. Ho.
