Yep, it's that time again. I seem to be doing that a lot (re-vamping my writing schedule).
I have to say, I'm getting more than a little discouraged with my chosen career path (writing). I knew it wasn't going to be easy. I know that it's going to take time. (Edited: My writing is not the problem. I do that everyday with no problem. It's getting the decent & regular paying freelance work that is discouraging.) But some days it really seems like it's impossible. I'm not giving up at all but it looks like I'm going to have to go back to the drawing board and look at plan D. Or is it F at this point? Anyway something has got to give, because I'm giving all that I have and doing all that I know how to do. Persistence is the name of the game, some wise person said, at some time in history.
I am already getting tired of the Christmas ads, commercials etc. Which is pretty bad since I really only started to notice them a few days ago. As far as I'm concerned anything Christmas related should start in December. Except for the music. I only want to hear or play it, 1 week before Christmas. Maybe an occasional song throughout the summer months. I think hearing a Christmas song in the middle of a July heatwave, helps me to stay cool.
As I write this I remember that the Christmas tree is going up early this year. Right after the US Thanksgiving, which I believe is November 22nd this year. A little more than a month of decorations is good enough!
When do you like to hear Christmas tunes, if ever? How early do you like to decorate, if you do? If you're not a decorator do you think people are nuts to even bother?
Till next time,
