Finding time to write

Is it just me, or is this time of year especially difficult to find time to write? With all of the holiday preparations and shopping and wrapping and parties and more parties I feel like I'm constantly going, going, going -- like the Energizer bunny.

Not only does the busyness of life eat into my precious writing time, but I don't have the time to reflect on the Advent season as much as I should. Now I know what you're thinking. It's all about priorities, and you're right. It is. I choose to do one thing over another. I could ditch the party and write, right? It's not always that easy. I have a family and friends, and they are important, too. Anyway...

I'm trying not to beat myself up over my lack of wordage. I mean, I do work long days. I do have a family to care for. I do have volunteer commitments. What about you? Do you find this time of year especially challenging. Any tips to share?


  1. I totally know what you mean. Time, is on the top of my Santa list this year.

  2. my family has decided to cut back on gift giving this year in order spend more time with each other. We're doing a Yankee Swap so that we can actually hang out rather than spend hours (yes, my mom was the guiltiest culprit of of all in the going overboard department)opening presents. I'm looking forward to it :)

    admittedly if you have small children this is harder but why not start now teaching them what Christmas is really about, ie LOVE not gifts. But that's just my opinion. Hope you find time to write :)
