It’s the first and the first Wednesday of the month, making it Insecure Writer’s Support Group day!
Strangely, I’m not insecure.
When I started this year, I had high aspirations. I’d stick to intermittent fasting, I’d get regular exercise, and I’d finally finish all my book 2 revisions.
Thanks coronavirus. You really screwed up my plans.
But I’m not alone in the debacle created by a world-wide pandemic, so I don’t feel bad about not sticking to my goals. I also had bigger, more important things pop up, like my mom’s cancer. We cheered yesterday when she finished her last chemo treatment. It’s been hard on her, and at times, she couldn’t see how brave and strong she was. But she made it! And the world is a better place because of it.
On the writing front, I have actually been writing, it’s just not on what I’ve supposed to be working on. While I procrastinate on tackling the necessary yet daunting rewrites of book 2, my mind has wandered into book 3. And being back in the office for a couple of weeks has made it possible to actually get some writing done.
Therefore, no insecurities with me right now!
Do you tend to get side-tracked by one project when you’re supposed to be working on another? How are you holding up with life? Did you have to set aside personal goals because of covid?
