This time of year there’s not much shaking in the publishing world. Too many loose ends to tie up. Editors are not reading, much less taking on anything new. Agents stop submitting and draw up game plans for the coming year.
Some writers take a break too. Others take advantage of the distraction-free environment to move ahead with their projects. I fall into the latter category. I’ve thought about taking a break, but in the end I surrender to the siren call. Granted I won’t get as much done over the next week, and I forgive myself in advance if my habits get a little sloppy, but one way or another I’ll show up for work to see what happens.
I wish you all a warm, love-filled holiday season.
