During the holidays it is so difficult to get things done! I am in a constant swirl of shopping, planning, running errands, brainstorming present ideas, keeping the kids occupied, going to special events, trying to make the holidays memorable and fun for the kids, remembering choir practices/party dates/to get the giving tree presents to church on the right day, and on and on and on.
So, where can I find time to get any writing stuff done? I found this quote the other day and it inspired me...
"There are three ways to get something done: do it yourself, hire someone, or forbid your kids to do it." -Monta Crane
Now, I can't forbid my kids to do my writing and have them do it for me, but I can be inspired by the mischief that seems to come along with the excess energy and excitement of the season for my kids. A kid waiting for Christmas is like a cat on catnip...insane! So let the insanity roll and I'll get my notebook!
