After Christmas

Congratulations!
You have officially survived Christmas.
All those weeks of planning, prepping, buying, baking, carding, cleaning, and wrapping have paid off.

(in the words of those oh-so-popular-this-time-of-year infomercials)
BUT WAIT, THERE’S MORE!

The myriad of things you didn’t get done have come due.
For every Christmas accomplishment, there was an, “Oh, I’ll do that after Christmas,” or a, “Let’s get together after Christmas!” and surely a “That can wait until after Christmas”.

Well, guess what?
It’s “after Christmas”.

So breath deep, find encouragement in the bottom of that coffee cup, buckle down and get to work.

And do yourself a favor, DON’T say, “I’ll get to that next year.”

About Mary Fran Says

I am an artist, crafter, designer and writer. I enjoy working with mixed media-- applying visual and tactile manipulations to telling a story. Not a lot of market for that, though, :), so I'm focusing on short story submissions and novel completions. Yes, plural. Lots of beginnings, too many ideas, not enough focus.
