Write at the last minute


Hi Everyone

It’s that time of year again, when it’s busy, busy, busy.

And yes, even the most prepared people, I include myself in this category, can still end up becoming very stressed until the last minutes before Christmas Day.

I started my Christmas shopping in July but I still need to wrap them.

One of the worst things I can get at Christmas, is the writing blues, as I am so busy with Christmas prep that I become frustrated with not writing enough.

It’s important to keep the mind flowing and the writing fluid.  It’s doesn’t matter what you write, just do it.  Here are some tips:

1)  Write a short message in each of your Christmas cards to family and friends who haven’t seen you in ages.  Give a brief summary of key moments in your life this year.

2) Write individual messages on all of your gift tags.  Use your imagination to come up with something better than just Happy Christmas.

3)  Create lists of tasks to do each day.  Prioritise them and give yourself a timescale.  Check each one off and modify as necessary.

4)  Keep a diary of Christmas events and appointments, you may need them to spark ideas for future stories.

5)  Ensure pen and paper is handy as you never know when a new story may spring to mind.

Happy Christmas.

Write soon.

  1. I love getting cards and presents with a little personal message – it means so much more than just ‘Happy Christmas’. The same with birthday cards – it shows that a bit of thought has gone into it, and for me that means more than a present.
