Let it snow!!!

As I write, the snow is falling. It has fallen all afternoon, the only change is the speed at which it comes down. Where the cars were parked overnight, the snow has covered the bare earth. Everywhere I look the ground is white.

Oh what a beautiful scene it makes. But there is the down side to the snow as well. Travel is difficult or even impossible, outdoor work is totally impossible, unless you are a livestock farmer, and have to feed the animals.

Writing is like snowy days. As the snow falls, and disrupts travel, work, shopping and other things, writing has its share of problems too.

If you are anything like me, there is every distraction available. In my case its a house, a family, and everything that goes with them. Writing comes in fits and starts. Some days I can write pages, and others, well I'm lucky if I can get even one word on the page or computer screen.

Now, having said that, how much writing do I really expect to get done with all there is to do before Christmas? If I had my way - loads. But, I don't have my way - so none. Every word I write will be a bonus, and, hopefully come the New Year, I will be able to write regularly. Time will tell.

Anyway, I would like to take this opportunity to wish every one that reads this a very merry Christmas and a Happy and prosperous 2010.
