On behalf of Pagan Writers Press, Shauna Aura Knight is organising a Winter Solstice Blog Hop! All of the authors involved are giving away something wonderful, so be sure to comment on all the sites involved, to be entered to win.
The topic for this Hop is ‘winter,’ which brings all sorts of thoughts to mind. This time of year I feel great conflict, as my urge is to hide in a cave. I’m not a cold-weather person, and I spend the darker months seeking heat. As such, I tend to be less active. Yet, life goes on. We don’t hibernate in western culture. If anything, our lifestyle speeds up around the holidays. As a result I tend to feel a bit more anxious and tired through the cold season.
Likewise, I take a break from my writing schedule in the winter. I generally hit the year with a very strict outline of projects and when they need to be completed, submitted, etc. It’s pretty intense, and when I reach my goals, I’m done. I write articles year-round, but I’ve learned the hard way not to overdo with manuscripts.
Ultimately, I prefer to enjoy the slower pace of winter. In reality, though, the pace is the same. I merely adjust how I respond to it better in the winter.
