We’re not sugarcoating it…

It’s the first Friday of 2024, and if you’re having trouble getting back into the swing of things after the holiday season, you’re not alone. Feeling post-holiday blues is so common, in fact, that Psychology Today offers some advice on how you can cope.

Since our expertise is words, not psychology, we can help you express how you might be feeling this time of year. You might loathe early January because you are loath to get back into your routine.

"Loath" is an adjective meaning reluctant: "He was loath to admit that he was wrong." "Loathe" is a verb meaning to detest something: "She absolutely loathes multiple-choice tests."

If one of your New Year’s resolutions is to improve your writing, we are here to help. Leave a comment to let us know what writing questions you have. We might have a past post that can help, and if not, we might address your question in a future newsletter.

Whether you’re loathing this time of year or not, we hope your 2024 is off to a good start!
