Christmas in Cancun released on Monday so it’s a busy time for me as an author…and then there’s the whole Christmas/New Years Holiday season.
Parties, shopping for gifts, a vacation with the whole family (not Cancun this year but we are headed to the Caribbean), shopping on warm islands, cooking, shopping for more food, decorating (and I do it BIG), shopping for just the right decorations, and finally celebrating Christmas with my family.
Then there’s more parties and cooking and New Years and…and…
Somewhere in there I have to find time to finish my novella, Conquered in Cancun.
So much to do, and the time flies!
I don’t know about you, but for me, the more I have to do, the more “stuff” gets done. I can be the world’s best (or worst depending on your point of view) procrastinator, especially if I only have one or two things to do and there’s no time constraints. But if I have a whole bunch of things and they all have deadlines, I can rock a list.
Yes, I’m a list maker. There’s nothing more gratifying than taking that pen and drawing a line through the
completed item, or scribbling through it to decimate that task if it was a tough one. Or one I just kept putting off until it was essential, like cleaning house.
Today, I have filled a legal pad with all the “stuff” I have to do.
Top of the list is to keep up with all the promotions I have going for Christmas in Cancun, and there are a LOT!
