It’s December 2020, the last month of the dreadful year of covid A few months back at the peak of covid, I felt disillusioned by everything including blogging. Thats when I saw Insecure Writer’s Support Group, spearheaded by the wonderful Alex J. Cavanugh. I was introduced to this group by my friend Sonia Dogra whose writings always intrigue me and thats when I decided to be a part of this wonderful writing group. It took me another few months to finally take the plunge. This is my first participation with the group. If any of you wish to be a part of this group please join here. They also have a Facebook group and you can check it out here.
Purpose: To share and encourage. Writers can express doubts and concerns without fear of appearing foolish or weak. Those who have been through the fire can offer assistance and guidance. It’s a safe haven for insecure writers of all kinds!
Posting: The first Wednesday of every month is officially Insecure Writer’s Support Group day. Post your thoughts on your own blog. Talk about your doubts and the fears you have conquered. Discuss your struggles and triumphs. Offer a word of encouragement for others who are struggling. Visit others in the group and connect with your fellow writer – aim for a dozen new people each time – and return comments. This group is all about connecting!
The awesome co-hosts for the December 2 posting of the IWSG are Pat Garcia, Sylvia Ney, Liesbet @ Roaming About Cathrina Constantine, and Natalie Aguirre!
Do visit them and show some love!
The question for this month is – Are there months or times of the year that you are more productive with your writing than other months, and why?
I have been blogging for almost 5 years now, and there have been months where I have contributed zero posts and not even visited my blog. I guess when I’m stressed I’m not able to write, so the months which are very heavy work wise have me zonked out too much to even think of writing. Towards the end of the year, the weather turns beautiful here, a relief from the hot dry summers and the festivals bring joy and happiness, and these are the times I feel like writing and sharing my musings with everyone. I always pen down a post or two when I’m on a holiday. So, I’m more productive in the last quarter of year, and least during the busy months of May, June, August and September. This year, however I have coaxed myself into writing atleast 1 post a week and I’ve been successful for atleast 26/52 weeks.
Do share your thoughts on which months tune you to write more ?
Let’s hope 2021 will be a bright year for everyone.
