IWSG Day & Planning Ahead

Insecure Writers Support Group New Badge

Golly gee wilikers it’s the final IWSG day of the year! And I completely forgot to write the post for December 5th. What was I thinking? Or not thinking? At least I have you, my fellow IWSGers, by my side as I falter, divert and rise above my writing goals. Thanks for bringing us together goes to ninja extraordinaire, Alex Cavanaugh.

The awesome co-hosts for the December 5 posting of the IWSG are J.H. Moncrieff, Tonja Drecker , Patsy Collins, and Chrys Fey!

So what’s going on with me this month?

Well for one thing…

‘As god as my witness I’ll never pants again!’

NaNoWriMo was a bust. For the first time ever, I entered NaNoWriMo without being prepared as I usually am. I’m a plantser. So I like to outline my stories. Interview my characters. Then let them take over the story telling, using the outline as a guideline of sorts.

But this year, I didn’t prep at all. So I couldn’t get into the story. (At least I’ve written a chapter from the middle and a prologue). Or was it because my initial interested disappeared? Or was it because the story line wasn’t as story-able as I thought?

Ever went through such a particular problem with a work in progress? How did you deal with it?

Anyways, I’m returning to the first novella in my Foreseen paranormal romance series. Yup, I plan to enter editing hell.


Starting with Love Lines and eventually making it to The Soul Traveler. Hopefully, I’ll have them completed and polished to query them in some pitches.

Which brings to another thing going on with me this month. Reviewing 2018 and coming up with a writing plan for 2019.

December 5 question – What are five objects we’d find in your writing space?




  1. I often run into a problem with lack of interest once the initial excitement of beginning a new book has worn off. The only solution I’ve ever found is to force myself to write through it. It’s torturous at first, but it always works.

    Happy (belated) New Year!
