I'm sure most people will be focused on preparations during the couple of weeks before Christmas, especially if you celebrate the season with large family gatherings or endless parties and outings. I'm enjoying a few Christmas lunches which have worked out well this year as they're on different weeks - looking forward to one later today with my friend.
If you have any time for writing or preparing what you'll be working on next, you might find the following links to free worksheets helpful. They came to me courtesy of the newsletter from the wonderful Angela Ackerman and Becca Puglisi of Writers Helping Writers. They're running a competition at the moment which you can still enter if you're quick.
Writers Digest - lots of interesting worksheets to download for planning your novel
Jamie Gold - very helpful worksheets for writers
Writers Helping Writers - Toolbox with excellent range of downloads
Hope some of these will be useful as we head towards the end of one writing year and the exciting possibilities in another.
