Happy Holidays!

It’s that time of year again… The houses on your street are covered in lights. Every store you go into is playing Christmas carols. Every store you go into is also jam packed full of people buying last minute Christmas presents–but hey guys, it’s almost Christmas, and in a few days the stores will be survivable again.

No matter what holiday you’re celebrating this winter, and even if you’re staying indoors with your best bah humbug face on, I hope you take the time to truly enjoy this last week of 2012. If you’re like me, you’ve accomplished a lot this year–although not as much as you hoped to accomplish–and you deserve to celebrate those accomplishments.

I was going to write a pretty large post today and two more this week. But then I read this post and realized that I am also suffering from pre-holiday burnout. I’ve been working so hard in the last three months or so that my brain has almost completely shut down.

I need time to rest and relax and to see all the people I haven’t been able to see in the last couple of months. I also need to spend a couple days focused on powering through my edits of Moonshadow’s Guardian, because frankly, I’ve been working on this thing forever and if I can’t get the edits near their finish line by New Years I’m going to be really upset.

So I’ve decided to take this week off from blogging. You will not be hearing from me on Wednesday or Friday. Instead, you can expect a post with my personal list of goals for 2013–and why I chose those goals–on Monday, right before we get into the new year.

I hope you will have a wonderful holiday, and if you really need some reading materials, don’t be afraid to go hunting through the archives here–I’ve written hundreds of interesting posts since I started blogging here and odds are you haven’t read them all.

Happy holidays!
