Ah the holidays, that time of year where everyone’s plans to get things done meet the hard cold reality of holiday parties, endless hours at the shopping mall, and car trips to Grandma’s house. For writers, it’s hard to navigate between the temptation to hole up in your office and keep writing until it’s all over and the temptation to abandon all pretense at writing between Thanksgiving and New Year’s.

In this week’s episode I discuss the challenges of writing at the holidays and offer a five-step approach to finding the balance that works for you.
