IWSG: NaNoWriMo 2015


It's the first Wednesday of the month, and time for members of the Insecure Writer's Support Group to share their writerly insecurities. The group was started by Alex J. Cavanaugh, and those interested in joining in can visit www.insecurewriterssupportgroup.com for more information.

And yes, it is that time of the year again, when writers all over the world come together in a bid to churn out 50,000 words of a brand new novel in the span of one month. Last year, I was forced to take a pass on the challenge, with the caveat of getting some writing done from the sidelines. This year? It's looking like another pass, with zero to minimal hope of getting any kind of writing done.

I could spend the remainder of this post lamenting the various reasons why I am unable to set aside time for writing. But I'll spare you the rhetoric. Instead, I'll leave you all with something somewhat random, but at the same time more inspirational (not to mention pleasing to the ears) than my lamentations. Enjoy.

  1. Sorry life is keeping you from writing. Can't stop you forever though.

    1. Thanks, Alex. Yeah. I guess my schedule might open up sometime in the future, or I might find some way to balance everything out.

  2. I've taken up the eBook challenge- not officially though.
    I've set myself a target of writing 20,000 words. 50,000 is just too much for me!
    And I can't even devote enough time for blogging, coz of studies and exams and festivals coming up.
    But I'm trying to make it a habit to write for at least half an hour before I go to sleep at night. It's been five days, and I've been able to implement it till now! #ThoughItsNotSomethingToBeProudOf :D

    1. That's great, Mithila, and definitely something to be proud of. Keep at it. You'll surely meet and surpass your 20,000-word goal before you know it. :D

  3. I've been blocked up writing-wise for the past year. I like to think of this period as preparing me for a different mode of writing.

    1. Thanks, Brandon. I guess it does, at least judging from my own experiences. :)
