IWSG - December

Click here to find out more and to see a list of other IWSG blogs.
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!

I don't know that I'm feeling particularly insecure at the moment. That, of course, could change in five minutes. It's been a pretty good year for me. I released two books and a novelette, and I made myself take time to live. That worked well, so I'll continue it.

I'm letting my NaNo project Swing Vote, Safe Harbors #3 rest while I edit A Season of Change, Safe Harbors #2.5. My goal is to have the novelette ready to go out some time in January or February.

How has 2014 been to you?

For fun, here's the latest video from The Piano Guys.

    1. I remind myself often that no one on their deathbed will wish they'd spent more time in the office.

    1. Yes. I have to get the first draft written before I can really work on the story.

  12. 2014 was full of stresses for me. Not all bad though. I can always reinvent myself in 2015, right?

    Nice to hear so much worked out for you this year. Here's to another good year to come.

  13. You've had a great year. You are productive with your goals and meeting them. I had a great year too, although I'd like to spend more time promoting.

    1. I wish promoting didn't take so much of what little time I have, but that's the nature of this beast, right?
