Apologies for a second email in two days, but as you already know, my mind really isn't in the right place. 

I had fully intended including a guest article in the newsletter I sent out yesterday because it's time sensitive.  This terrific article - written by Cheryl C. Malandrinos - will help you keep writing throughout the holiday season.  Cheryl has written a series of time management tip articles, which I hope to bring you in the future.

Thank you for all your lovely emails about my mother; I really appreciate your kind thoughts and support.


Til next time…

Bust through Holiday Stress
and Keep Writing

Cheryl C. Malandrinos 2006– All rights reserved


It’s the holiday season. There are gifts to buy, a house to decorate, guests to entertain, and a family to make memories with. And you still have to find time to dedicate to your writing career.

Impossible? Not if you plan it right.

Time management experts help you simply your life, prioritize your to-do list, and increase productivity. They also have ideas on how you can beat back holiday stress so there’s still room for your writing. And you’ll find many of these holiday stress-busters will help you throughout the year.

Plan Ahead

Dr. Donald Wetmore, a full-time professional speaker on the topic of time management, says, "We know well in advance, (like a year before), that the holidays will require a lot more of our time for special preparations in addition to our regular routines and responsibilities." So plan ahead and schedule tasks and events with greater care. Then things get accomplished sooner — rather than later — and at a pace you can handle.

But planning ahead doesn’t have to be reserved for the end of the year.

Think about your mornings. Everyone’s battling for the bathroom; kids and adults are scurrying around like mice trying to get breakfast, find their belongings, and then run off to school or work. Talk about a stressful way to begin a day of writing. In her book Working at Home While the Kids Are There, Too Loriann Hoff Oberlin suggests planning for the morning the night before by packing lunches, preparing backpacks and briefcases, and setting aside easy breakfast items such as bagels and cereal.


During the holidays, it’s easy to try and do too much yourself. Dr. Wetmore says, "There is a lot of difference between "I do it" and "It gets done". Which is more important to you?" He hopes it’s the getting done part. While doing it all is fun, it might be an impractical goal which stresses you out.
