IWSG: God Bless Us, Everyone!

It's the first Wednesday of the month and it's time for the Insecure Writer's Support Group post! If you'd like to join, go HERE

This month's optional question is: It's holiday time! Are the holidays a time to catch up or fall behind on writer goals?

I always feel like I'm behind on writer goals. I always want to do so much but life gets in the way. I retired last April, lived in our motorhome for five months while looking for an affordable forever home, found our forever home (yay!) in October and moved to Arizona. 

It was a crazy time. 

BUT!  I did NaNoWriMo last month and wrote over 50K words! I wrote two novellas and added some words onto a book I started seven years ago. I call that a win!

Of course, the downside is that I wrote it quickly and so most of it is not pretty! I have a lot of editing to do, but at least I have something to edit!

 I want to wish you all HAPPY HOLIDAYS! 
I'm grateful for you all, and your support.

Here's my favorite line from A Christmas Carol 
by Charles Dickens. 

Bob Cratchitt said of his son, Tiny Tim, at church on Christmas Eve:
Somehow he gets thoughtful, sitting by himself so much, and thinks the strangest things you ever heard. He told me, coming home, that he hoped the people saw him in the church, because he was a cripple, and it might be pleasant to them to remember upon Christmas day who made lame beggars walk, and blind men see.
Will you catch up on writing goals during the holidays, or fall behind? 

Do you keep to a writing schedule or does life get in the way?
