Don’t bother publishing between Christmas and New Years. I looked back at my December stats for the last three years and it is always my worst month by a mile. And that last week is always my worst week of the year.

I’ve got some good stuff written and edited, but I’m going to resist hitting ‘Write’ and hold those articles until the new year. I may do some Short Forms like this, just to keep my hand in, and of course I’ll be writing at my usual pace of around 500–1000 words most days.

I’m also going to spend some time putting together a basic editorial schedule for January as a sort of test to see if it makes any difference.

In the meantime, Happy Holidays! M
