The end of the world?

If you're reading this, the world didn't end.

I'm kinda glad. I've just started my Christmas holidays and I've got a lot of writing I want to get done. I'd be bummed if I lost my first serious, solid writing time in six months.

Of course, it could be that the 21st is just the BEGINNING of the end of the world, and it is going to end but not just now...

So I guess the motto of this particular moment is - don't put things off. Don't keep thinking I'll get to that tomorrow, or next week, or next year, cause you know that moment may not come.

So the two weeks holiday that are starting right now are going to be about getting to the things I've been putting off.

While I'll be seeing friends and family, my focus will be on my writing. I have some edits to go back (I've got a contemporary romance coming out in February) and I've finally worked out the storyline for a science fiction romance that I first conceived nearly THIRTY years ago! That's a story with a looooong gestation period. But I've finally cracked it, and I'm planning on the draft being ready to go by the time I go back to work January 7.

I'm also going to stop making excuses, stop putting it off and get started on an exercise regime, and losing weight. Had a bit of a health scare last week. Turns out I'm fine, but continuing to put things off, to decide it's too hard, will one day come back and bite me HARD - and not in the sexy vampire way.

What about you? What have you been putting off, saying you'll get to it one day? Why not make today the day you start?

You know, in case the Mayans were onto something and the world really will end soon :)


I've been doing my own Ten Days of Christmas celebration, giving things away and here's what you can get to celebrate Christmas. My fantasy romance 'The Right Connection' is available now FOR FREE from Smashwords in the e-version of your choice!

Have a great holiday season!
