IWSG: Slow and Steady


Yep. I'm back. It's been, what, eight months since I last posted as part of the Insecure Writer's Support Group. Wow. Time really does fly when you're... slaving it out in a 9-5. I never meant to stay away that long. But I'm here now, and at least I'm writing again, all thanks to an earlier commitment to take part in this year's NaNoWriMo.

But first things first... The Insecure Writer's Support Group was started by Alex J. Cavanaugh, a sci-fi writer and blogger extraordinaire. The purpose of the group is to allow members to share with one another their various challenges and triumphs. The group posts every first Wednesday of the month.

Right. My insecurity for the month centers around the 50,000 words I'm supposed to be writing. So far, I've written somewhere south of 5,000 words. Haven't even tallied my daily totals. Needless to say, I'm yet to get back into the groove, even though we're almost one week into NaNoWriMo. But of course, there's still plenty of time to catch up.

Or is there? I better get back to writing.

  2. Good luck with NaNo. Yes, working really does get in the way of the stuff we love doing! I'm sure it won't take long to get back into the swing of writing - just think, there's a whole weekend just around the corner, perfect for knuckling down and writing all day and forgetting to eat!

    1. LOL. Thanks, Anna. Sadly, I work on Saturdays, so I'll need to go full turbo on Sunday. :)

  3. Hi Michael, well, welcome back to IWSG! And don't worry about your word count for NaNo. It's my first time doing it this year and I'm approaching it with the attitude of, "even if I don't hit 50k at least I started a new novel." At least you're writing, right? Good luck to you.
