Required holiday celebrations begin this weekend. My introverted nerves jangle as I brace myself for the marathon that ends New Year’s Day. Crowds make me uncomfortable. I prefer staying home in my comfy PJs, bunny slippers, and snuggling under a blanket with a book. Large parties suck the life from me, blending with normal people is a challenge, and small talk is an awkward ping pong match. Socializing and connecting with others good for me, but I struggle to balance interactions and fake smiles with the individuals I want to see. .
.
.
Behind each event, is a frantic host who has spent countless hours and superhuman effort to ensure perfection. Honoring their work and surviving, means setting rules before I enter the venue. Pre-party, I arm myself with non-controversial, conversation-starting topics I can use to interject when discussions lag. I move between groups before I run low on questions. I am not shy about using the bathroom or an outdoor terrace as my self-imposed time out zone. These quiet alcoves are excellent for a mini recharge. The added benefit is I discover other introverts lurking there. If I am lucky, we commiserate and share a laugh that makes the extroverts, who can’t stand to miss anything, approach us. .
.
.
The key to navigating sizable groups is to keep moving and having a “time to go” signal. It’s never acceptable to leave too early, but there is an optimum moment. I grab my coat, thank my host, and make a graceful exit. .

How do you survive holiday parties? .

Wrote most of this book in Starbucks so it’s only appropriate that I hit the end here. 💫 2020’s gonna be a good year for stories, friends. 
What are you most looking forward to in the new year?

Did you write yesterday? Let us know your Day 340 word count in the comments. .

There’s a change to the usual schedule with #selfpromotesunday! Tomorrow I’ll be hosting another day of #selflesspromotesunday to selflessly celebrate the #indieauthors who captured your heart and mind in 2019. Let’s hail those who had you bleary-eyed in work or school because you stayed up late, unable to put their book down the night before. Let’s shout out to those who introduced us to new #bookboyfriends and #bookgirlfriends or set our thoughts drifting to characters so real, we can’t believe they only exist in the pages of a book. What about the villains? Did an author craft such a hateful and manipulative scoundrel that hopes for their painful demise was all you could think of for days? In this season of goodwill, I’m asking you to share your favourite books and authors from 2019 using the #selflesspromotesunday tag. Repost an old review, or write that one you never got around to. Share your experiences; what got your heart racing, your tears falling or your cheeks blushing? What was your breakout book of 2019? Your most anticipated? The biggest surprise? Join me in dedicating the next few Sundays to selflessly celebrate the book and author wonders of 2019. As Leonard Nimoy said “The miracle is this; the more we share, the more we have.” Let’s give back this December and share our book love! 📚
