But apparently not writer's block!

I sat down to write my Christmas letter short story rough draft only for it to dribble pitifully over the page. It's evident that I'm not one of those snappy lifestyle article authors that can write a self-absorbed mostly non-fiction self-deprecating piece in the first person. That and my inspiration won't carry a whole story. I need to seek out a bit more inspiration and go back to that.

Additionally, I sat down to work on the cookbooks. What a project! I began to write the notes on thrift topics and historic notes (each cookbook has a different focus, but there's overlap in the notes), but found I wanted to test a few things out in the kitchen before writing their sections since I had some ideas about prep that, if they work, would save time, money, and effort so I'd like to include them.

As if that weren't bad enough, my muse is pitching inspiration at me for a whole different story for the girls!

All I can say for myself is that it's lucky I started work on these, and the genealogical research, so early! At least the basic research for this year's genealogy gifts are done. I can go to print on them with a two week lead time for my husband to come up with the artwork and for the printer. Naturally, that means I'm going to continue researching to add as much as I can, right up until I'm getting them in only by the skin of my teeth. I'm no Tolkien, but I sympathize with his perfectionism.

In other preparatory news, my "Christmas" flicker light order is shipping, but I got the very last one! Unfortunately, that means only one is shipping rather than the several I'd ordered, but they say they'll have them again next year.
