Red Edit : Roadblocks
photo: When all else fails, watch the snow fall.
Oh boy. Is anybody getting some editing done? I host Thanksgiving and Christmas at my house. It's no big deal. Really. All I do is the main dish - turkey, and of course, clean the house. But my family is really great and brings everything else! I was able to work right up until Tuesday. I intended to writ on Wednesday and even sat there at the computer, but nothing came. Then the day after TG, it was even worse. I sat there for hours; I got marketing stuff done but barely any editing at all.
I'm slowly getting back into it now and I've realized something. Distractions and other events stop the flow of ideas. It's not just a matter of going back to work at a retail store after the break. It's so much more. The holidays just happen to fall during the time that I must be working on my manuscript since it is due in January. So I don't have the choice to just kinda work here and there. I must learn how to do this better. I'm not sure what the solution is. I'm completely open to suggestions...Please!
