YA Highway RTW: Home for the Holidays
This week's topic: With Thanksgiving on the horizon we want to know how you balance hectic times like the holidays with your writing schedule.
Honestly since I am still in college I don't have to worry about all of the crazy holiday stuff. The being home for the holidays is not that stressful for me. Yeah, during Thanksgiving I will be busy helping my mom, doing chores and entertaining guest but for the most part it doesn't change. Even with Christmas I don't do too much work.
I actually find it nice being home for the holiday's. I don't have a car since I'm lame, so I spend the mornings at home. That is when I get a lot of writing done. I like the quite of an empty house. It keeps my head clear and I can can just write. When my family gets home that's a different story. Most of the time I just put my writing away because I know I get distracted. Since I'm a night owl I can write again once my family is asleep for the night.
Personally for me I think the real hectic times are when I am in school. Ugh, papers, and test and projects oh my! But this year with NaNoWriMo I proved to myself that I can find time to write in college I just needed the motivation.
So how does your schedule change during the holidays? And just for fun what is your favorite holiday dessert?
PS I am over 40,000 words into NaNoWriMo. :D
