Blessing or a Curse..#IWSG

Insecure Writers Support Group

Purpose:

To share and encourage. Writers can express doubts and concerns without fear of appearing foolish or weak. Those who have been through the fire can offer assistance and guidance. It’s a safe haven for insecure writers of all kinds!

Posting: 

The first Wednesday of every month is officially Insecure Writer’s Support Group day. Post your thoughts on your own blog. Talk about your doubts and the fears you have conquered. Discuss your struggles and triumphs. Offer a word of encouragement for others who are struggling. Visit others in the group and connect with your fellow writer – aim for a dozen new people each time – and return comments. This group is all about connecting! Be sure to link to this page and display the badge in your post. And please be sure your avatar links back to your blog! Otherwise, when you leave a comment, people can’t find you to comment back.
Let’s rock the neurotic writing world!
Our Twitter handle is @TheIWSG and hashtag is #IWSG.

Every month, we announce a question that members can answer in their IWSG post. These questions may prompt you to share advice, insight, a personal experience or story. Include your answer to the question in your IWSG post or let it inspire your post if you are struggling with something to say.

 

Remember, the question is optional!

December 2 question – Are there months or times of the year that you are more productive with your writing than other months, and why?

Most definitely! I’ve always been a procrastinator but I also work well with deadlines. For those reasons, I think during the month of November, I always start to feel twinges of anxiety and regret that I haven’t accomplished the goals I wanted to that year. January 1st is looming and I need to come up with NEW goals! My choices are to kick it into high gear and finish, or roll a few goals into the new year. Let’s face it, this year sucked on SO many different levels. I’ve faired well, I don’t have much to complain about and so much to be grateful for. I wish it was the same for everyone but it hasn’t been:(

My 3rd book was released on March 17th. Two days into the Pennsylvania and pretty much the entire worlds shut down. Was I devastated? Yes, of course. But the book Realize your Writing Dreams is a book on writing, publishing and marketing. So many people that were laid off from their jobs decided it would be a great time to write that book they always wanted to write! It turned out to be the perfect time for that books release.

The New Year, January is always a productive writing month for me. I always want to have a better year than the last, and am motivated to get off to a good start. That usually last a month.

For as long as I can remember late Spring, Summer and early Fall have always been my most creative and most productive writing seasons. I’m a Pisces, so during those seasons I spend a lot of time at the beach, it’s my favorite writing space.

One of my 2020 goals was to host a writing retreat at the beach. I planned it and was so excited. Sadly, I had to scale it way back but it still happened and it was amazing. Another reason to be so grateful. I’ll be writing about the retreat next week!

How about you? Are you cramming in writing time to complete your 2020 goals? Has this year been a curse or a blessing in disguise? Have you chosen 2021 writing goals or at this point are we going to be happy to arrive in 2021 in one piece?

Have a Blessed Holiday Season Everyone!,

Doreen
