IWSG - May 2015

For this Insecure Writer's Support Group day, I just want to say what I've said for most of my other IWSG posts this year: I need to get it together and have a consistent schedule for writing. I'm letting the chaos of life keep me from finishing my novel.

  1. You can do it. You are tougher than that chaos!

    1. Unfortunately, I am not tougher than this chaos. I am defeated.

  2. C'mon you can do it! But I'm in the same boat although not writing a novel.

    1. I will do it! (Yes this contradicts my comment on Alex's post - hence the insecurity.)

  3. Tonja, life happens for all of us. We just have to find the balance somewhere. You will do it. It's taken me 7 years to finish mine. And that's okay with me.

    1. I am going to a novel writing conference this summer. I definitely will get it done if only because I paid good money for the conference. :)

  4. Happens to everyone at times. Hope you get back to it soon.

  5. Felt the same, Tonja, especially with the added responsibility of an invalid husband, so resorted to NLP tapes, works every time for me :0)

    1. It is difficult when we're responsible for caring for other people. That's for sure.

  6. I know how you feel. I'm stuck in Killer stilettos. But working feverishly on 2 other novels.

    2. I couldn't reply to your current post because I am boycotting all discussion of the K word. I refuse to add energy to it. :) I will keep an eye out for you ISWG post.

    1. Our posts were pretty similar except you have California weather, and I don't.

  8. Neuro Linguistic Programming, Tonja, I listen to Paul McKenna's tapes on the ipod.

  9. I think you just have to treat it like you would anything that absolutely *must* get done, like laundry and meals and such. Make time for it. An hour a day. Twenty minutes a day. Something. Fit writing into your schedule as 'you time' and you'll find yourself fighting for it more.
