It’s the first Wednesday of the month, making it Insecure Writer’s Support Group day. What has me insecure?
One of my goals this year was to be done with Isto, the second book in my epic fantasy series. You’d think this would be an easy task, considering I’d finished the first draft early this year. Well, I decided it needed a bit of a tension increase in the last stretch, and that turned into a sputtering engine in my productivity car. Apparently, my subconscious takes issue with trying to do something that it considers already done.
I thought I knew how I wanted to tackle my problem, but rearranging events isn’t going as planned. I did write 1500 words yesterday. I deleted them this morning.
I have until the end of the month to get this rewritten and still retain some sense of accomplishment. But the kids are out of school starting December 21st, plus there’s the GT expo today, no school on Friday, and a doctor’s appointment coming up pretty quick. By my calculations, I get a total of 10 lunches to work on my revisions.

IWSG Question of the Month – How would you describe your future writer self, your life and what it looks and feels like if you were living the dream?
Considering that my dream life is one of slow-paced domestic bliss with a hearty helping of alone time to write, I don’t think I’m going to spend much time on this month’s question. But what I do know for sure, if I were living the dream, there’d be free Red Bull every day!
Did you accomplish your goals this year? Are you feeling the hectic rush of the holidays? What would your dream life be like?
