Are you trying to get your writing projects done while also preparing for Christmas? I confess, I’m not writing much right now. But, I am always collecting writing material.
- Write a journal entry every day listing what you’ve done that day. If you think you’re too busy, perhaps you’re spending time on some things that could be rescheduled or dropped altogether. Perhaps you could write an article about organizing for the holidays to submit next fall.
- Carry a notepad or digital recorder with you when you travel. I find that ideas come to me while I’m driving. It helps to record those ideas while they’re fresh. Sometimes, I don’t even need my notes to get started on the article or devotion, but the fact that I wrote it down helps it stick in my mind.
- Don’t let any networking opportunity go to waste. Parties with friends and family provide opportunities for you to listen for subject matter that’s of interest to others. Don’t just network with other writers. Network with your potential readers.
