IWSG Day…More Reading Than Writing

Happy IWSG Day! It’s another first Wednesday of another month and you know what that means. It’s our day for us writers to come together. Give each other support as we traverse our writing journeys. As always, thanks for bringing the IWSG community together goes to ninja extraordinaire Alex Cavanaugh.

The awesome co-hosts for the August 5th posting of the IWSG are: Susan Baury Rouchard, Nancy Gideon, Jennifer Lane, Jennifer Hawes, Chemist Ken, and Chrys Fey!

So what’s going on with me this month?

Well, I’ve been doing more reading than writing. Basically, I’ve been continuing my reading binge of the past few months. But unlike last year, when I consumed books because of writer’s block. I’m devouring books (though I’ve been enjoying doing so) due to my current lackadaisical state of mind when it comes to my writing goals. And thanks to discovering the new reading app Hoopla, my book bingeing bonanza, seems to have no end.

Oh, I will resubmit my erotic short “What Happens in Caribana” to a new press. And I might write a new short story that filtered into my brain early this summer. Or try submitting to Violet Gaze Press’ new anthology submission. But whether I’ll get any or one of my writerly goals completed by September is 50/50.

Where are you in your writing and writing goals? Have any news to share? What are you writing now? What are you reading now?


    • So true. Next time I make writing goals, I’ll try to consider the possibility of calamities. Hoping nothing like an alien invasion, zombie apocalypse or Godzilla awaits us in 2021.


  1. I’m hoping for a good month of words, because I have a deadline that is definitely not far enough away. But I’m trying to be realistic about what I can do during a month when school is starting back up. I’ll settle for steady progress, even if it’s slow. @samanthabwriter from

    • Hope you’re able to make your deadline. At least with steady progress, you’ll end up with more words to keep instead of having to cut. Good luck!
