This is it people! The last First Wednesday of 2022. I’m shocked that we’ve met here for an entire year to talk about writing, reading, and life experiences. I’ll leave this year with a lot of good memories, many interesting experiences, and some treasured friends. Thanks for all your visits and your wonderful comments.
Now onto the final IWSG question for 2022
Every month, we announce a question that members can answer in their IWSG post. These questions may prompt you to share advice, insight, a personal experience or story. Include your answer to the question in your IWSG post or let it inspire your post if you are struggling with something to say.
Remember, the question is optional!
It’s holiday time! Are the holidays a time to catch up or fall behind on writer goals?
I definitely fall far behind in any goals I have–the writing ones included. My priorities shift to food (especially biscotti which I bake in copious batches), to my kids, to all the decorations that I’ve stored away for years. I seem to return to my “old” way of doing things and become more domestic and much more social.
The writing will be there when I put the decorations back in their boxes and when I’m no longer planning dinner parties or going to them. And when the festivities come to an end, I’ll be at my computer or scribbling in one of notebooks. But I’ll have a lot of wonderful memories of those biscottis, the kids with their presents and wide-eyed wonder at Santa, and the shared time with friends.
May you all have a wonderful December and meet the new year in high spirits and good health.
The December WEP Challenge is on.
