Also consider how to stay busy and engaged in the dark months.

First Book of Shadows Assignment: Decide on the goals you’ve set for yourself, and take ten minutes to ‘freewrite’ ideas and thoughts. Freewriting means to write, non-stop, with a timer. Don’t worry about spelling, punctuation, or anything that will stop the flow of though. I’ve used this technique to work through problems, writing (talking) to myself and things get worked out.

The goal here is to formulate a plan to achieve those goals. Store this in  your Book of Shadows.
