It’s December, and quite a few people have finished NaNoWriMo. And even if you didn’t finish or get to the 50,000 goal, that’s quite okay too- at least you set it in your mind that you would try to write a story in November. I might be slightly jealous of those who did win.

But now comes the hard part.

Staying motivated through the holidays and even through the rest of the year can be quite the challenge for those of you who have frequent writer’s blocks, plot bunny escapes, and artistic burnout.

Like so many people, I am a paradox. I am a politically conservative vegetarian. I am from a Christian background, and still tend to like those values, but am a metaphysical astrologer trained in science who has an interest in the magic of ancient Egypt and a weird belief that some piece of our essence can live on a server. I live in Texas, but like chatting with my international Wordpress pals the best. I learn by teaching. Technically, I am a "Leo," but I am very, very Aquarian with a dose of Scorpio. I bitterly complain about Algol (and Algol personaliites), yet it is the one star that defines me most (other than Regulus). (Which, oddly, makes me an Algol personality.) I am a reclusive lover of peace and quiet who has the Ascendant in the Via Combusta (the most conflict ridden part of the zodiac). I am an incredibly private person with a blog with over 800 followers and 50 to 150 regular daily visitors. I could go on, but I think you get the picture.
