IWSG — Time Flies, Whether You’re Having Fun Or Not

Today’s the day for the Insecure Writer’s Support Group (IWSG) where, on the first Wednesday of every month, writers get together to share their insecurities and offer encouragement. The IWSG was created by Alex J. Cavanaugh, and you can learn all about it and sign up for it here


How did it get to be July already??? I had hoped to get more blogging done in June, but that didn’t happen. And I didn’t get much done in the way of visiting during last month’s IWSG, either, but I’ll try again this month and hopefully do better.

I am making progress on my WIP, though. Whoo hoo! I’m right at the edge of the climax and can’t wait to see what surprises are in store before I hit The End. I just need to find a way to carve out a little more writing time. It’s so hard to do when there are so many demands on my time. My insecurity is that I won’t be able to find that time and writing and blogging will fall by the wayside again. Does anyone ever feel like they have enough time to do all the things that need to be done?

  1. It is a constant battle for me. I will keep moving forward and keep trying to find that perfect balance. We must consider our writing important and not just a lil ole hobby and once we get that I think we make finding time a priority.
    Happy #IWSG DAY!

    • That perfect balance is so elusive, but like you, I’ll keep trying to find it. And you’re so right about not relegating writing to hobby status. It needs to be at the forefront if we want to get anywhere with it.


    • Oh, wow, buying a house is such a huge undertaking. Then there’s moving and getting settled. I wasn’t sure what would happen when I finally jumped back into my manuscript after being away for many months, but to my relief, things clicked and I’m making progress again. I’m sure you’ll be right back into it in no time. 🙂

  2. Unfortunately blogging is one of the things that always seems to fall by the wayside with me – there really aren’t enough hours in the day! I’m trying to fit in more blogging time, both posting and visiting. Good luck with your writing!

  3. Great that you on point with the writing. There’s a literary festival here next weekend so I will be going to a few talks in the hope to get inspiration and strengthen my resolve.


  4. I just switched from part time to full time work and now I feel like I can’t keep up with any of the things I used to do, I still manage to be fairly good at posting on my blog but my reading and writing has fallen by the wayside. I hope your writing continues to go well 🙂
