WIP Wednesday [December 2018]

WIP Wednesday: December 2018 | Work in Progress | Blogging | Creative Writing | Writer | RachelPoli.com

I mean… what is December, really? It’s filled with holiday shopping, wrapping presents, prepping for family, gathering with said family and friend, and stress. Lots and lots of stress.

So, what did I accomplish this month? What have I been working on? Nothing really writing related, that’s for sure.

I’ve tried and I’ve little bits here and there, but for the most part I’ve been dealing with real life things. Some good, some bad, unfortunately.

Most of my December work in progress has been prepping the blog for 2019 as well as coming up with a decent timeline and plan for my writing for 2019. Which, I’ll be writing a blog post about soon and also in January.

My thoughts are all over the place at the moment, if you couldn’t tell.

This week has been tough since this past weekend didn’t go as planned so now I feel like I’m rushing to get things done before Christmas. I have a lot of things to do this week that has nothing to do with Christmas so I feel like I’m scrambling. I’m usually in good shape at this time but I only just wrapped my gifts yesterday. Normally they would have been under the tree two weeks ago.

But what can you do?

It doesn’t feel like Christmas to me. I see the tree in my living room, the lights outside everyone’s houses, the chill and snow is in the air, everyone is baking… but I’ve been so busy that I haven’t had the time to sit and enjoy it. I hope I’m able to finally take a breath this weekend and take in the festivities of Christmas and enjoy it all because we all know it’s going to be over in a blink of an eye.

So, yeah. That’s what’s happening on my end. Busy with lots of things but writing and sometimes blogging have had to take a backseat. We’ll see how the rest of the week goes.

What have you been working on this month? Let me know in the comments below! If you liked this post, please share it around.

  1. Exactly the same here too, except for the 2019 planning. For some reason, I can’t bring myself to think about next year, not yet…
    Relax and have a wonderful Christmas, Rachel…

    • You still have time to think about 2019 (if you do think ahead). I’m too much of a planner. I need to have some sort of idea for 2019, lol.

      I hope you have an awesome Christmas as well. Enjoy. 🙂

  2. I think most of us are too busy scrambling to do everything to do much writing at the moment. I know I am. I’ve got things I want to get done before the end of the year (most of which are now done, so I can take some time to enjoy the holidays) and it’s meant writing has had to take a backseat.

  3. Finished Book 9 in time for my December 15 deadline–which meant that everything else has been neglected all month! But I wrapped and mailed like crazy and got the things that had to be mailed done yesterday. Now I am writing Christmas cards. Waited so long to get a tree they were all gone so we had to buy a fake one. But it all still feels like Christmas anyway! Will wrap and bake and clean like a mad woman for the rest of the days until Christmas! .But it’s all good! Thinking of starting to plot a romance novel.
