IWSG Day!

Hey Guys

insecure-writers-support-group-badgeHow do these days come round so quick!?

Since last months post, I managed to submit something to Rachel on Christmas Eve and it is now killing me awaiting her feedback. *goes back to refreshing email* so I am pretty much at a stop point. I’ve not looked at my WIP since Christmas Eve as I pretty much got to the point of not caring anymore.

I should use this time to rest but I need to be doing something. I have started to watch Lucifer on prime and I keep thinking about writing something new but I am just not really sure where I should start… I even joined the library in an attempt to get a book out on trafficking and failed to get past the first hurdle when searching there online catalogue.

Back to work today so I am sure that will bring with it, it’s own endless joy.

So this months question:

What steps have you taken to put a schedule in place for your writing and publishing?

When I first started working with Rachel she suggested that I aim to write 350 words a day, but I seemed to have not been very good at that either. I am lucky as I only work three days a week so I try to use Tuesday / Thursday’s for writing which is easier than it sounds.

I do thought use my laptop in the evening, so I try and do stuff then.

My biggest problem is you tell me what is wrong with my WIP and I will fix it, but trying to edit something I have no feedback on is the hardest part! I am so lucky to have been accepted by Rachel or I’d be totally in the dark not knowing how to move forward.

I hope everyone is well, and thanks as always to Alex Cavanaugh for holding the IWSG where we all come together once a month and discuss our insecurities and our successes over the past month.

  1. Hi Claire! We all need someone like Rachel, it sounds like. I can imagine you are anxiously waiting for some feedback, so you can get going again. A little break is not a bad thing, though, especially if you can use it to rest and give your mind time to pause and reflect. Enjoy the continued work on your manuscript!

  2. Man, I love Lucifer (the tv show not the alleged fallen alleged angel)! So under-rated, but yes binge-watching can be a problem for me too, especially awesome shows about bad guys who are actually good guys with broken wings. ::sigh!!:: Glad you have a good writing partner, and here’s to a productive year.
