Newsletter 4th December 2021: Getting ahead of myself 🎁

by | Newsletters


When I write anything like a newsletter or a post or an article, it’s pretty spontaneous.

I think a thing. I write it. I put it out there.

But I should probably plan things better 😊

There are days when I don’t know what to say.

Yes, really.

And then I ferret around on my hard drive or on the web for inspiration.

Usually, I don’t have to read more than a title before it sets off a thought that leads to my fingers tapping away at the keyboard.

But there is always the “what if my words have all dried up?” sucky moment before that. 🤣

I could do with fewer of those.

I wanted to write this part of my newsletter well in advance of needing to send it because I’m getting a booster jab in one arm and the flu shot in the other in a couple of hours.

So this little paragraph was inspired by not knowing what to write today, which led to me writing about not knowing what to write.

How meta is that? LOL

Anyway, just sayin’ if you struggle with words, do yourself a favor and brainstorm topics in advance so you have fewer of the sucky “not knowing what to write” moments and you can just get on and write. 😊

In other words, don’t be me!

Update: I had both shots a few hours ago and so far so good apart from slightly sore arms when I lift them 😊

It’s not a cheap course, but it’s lower in price than many of the courses we see these days, and it’s worth every penny even at full price.

DON’T Download All the Things! 

There are so many FREE goodies (over 200!!!) at Lizzie’s Christmas Party that you will need to be selective about what you get.

If you download all the things, it will be overwhelming, so take what you need and leave the rest behind. 😲

You might recognize this Birthday calendar which I contributed as it goes perfectly with our Quirky Calendar so be sure to pick this up especially if you have that product. (If you don’t, you’ll have the chance to get the original (and the matching planner) at launch price after you pick up the free birthday calendar.)
