I have never been caught up in making New Year's resolutions or even setting goals. Both represent something I said I'd do but I don't. I do enjoy the task of finding a focus word each year and allowing that to guide me through my days of writing.
Look at the face of a watch or clock. In it, we can see the hours already past, the present time, and even anticipated future hours. All in that singular dial.
A look at our lives reveals something similar to the clock face. On New Year's Eve, time is spent reviewing the previous year and what we didn't accomplish, or in enjoying the present moment of celebrating the coming year, or perhaps anticipating the singing of Auld Lang Syne as the clock strikes 12:01 AM and heralds in our future.
It doesn't matter which holiday you've just celebrated (perhaps Hannukah), you're counting down the days to celebrate (maybe Christmas), or you're still in the planning stages of festivities (Kwanzaa?), or some other holiday activity like ringing in 2018. I simply want to add to your revelries a wish for love, laughter and joy throughout your celebration.
Who doesn't enjoy receiving gifts related to the work they love to do? No one! And that includes writers.
I spent a little time scouring the Internet for the best deals, IMHO, on things I, a writer, would love to receive as a gift. Sharing them with you is a bright spot in my day if these ideas help with your Christmas shopping.
