During the holidays it can be a bit chaotic. There are people to see, things to be done, and traditions to uphold. This year, try to find a few quiet moments amidst the chaos. Take a few calming breaths. Find a place of calm. What are you grateful for? What is most important to you?

If you’re able to, find a quiet place and jot down how you’re feeling. Journal. Don’t censor what you write. Just write.

If your mind starts wandering to your story and your characters, let it. Start writing. You can always transfer your longhand material to your computer. Let your thoughts flow.

Happy holidays!
