Insecure Writer’s Support Group – New Year Goals

Hello writers and HAPPY NEW YEAR 2015! It’s the first Wednesday of January and what better time for us to share our goals for the next 365 days than at the first IWSG meeting of the year. I’ll be coming up on my 2nd year as a member of the #IWSG in another two months or so.

For all the new members, allow me to introduce myself. 🙂 My given name is Eva Solar, though I use one of my two  pen names for writing – Lilica Blake/Lily Eva Blake. It all depends on what I’m writing.  My other blog My Miracle Life, uses my real name because it relates to my life post brain hemorrhage/stroke. I also use it for non-fiction, content and article based writing.

Now that the introductions are out of the way, I’m sure you’re all aware that the amazing Ninja Captain Alex J. Cavanaugh founded this spectacular group and it has become THE PLACE to go if you are an insecure writer.

Purpose: To share and encourage. Writers can express doubts and concerns without fear of appearing foolish or weak.

 The  co-hosts for the January 7 posting of the IWSG are Elizabeth Seckman, Lisa Buie-Collard, Chrys Fey, and Michelle Wallace!

Please make sure you stop by and thank them for all their hard work. My doctor has ordered more physical therapy for me; you’ll be able to read more about it on my IWSG post on my other blog.

That means my number one goal has to be ORGANIZATION when it comes to my writing life. I’ve already started listing. I’m going to try keeping it short, so I’ll just bullet list it below.

  • Publish posts at least 6 times a month
  • Post at least 1 book review monthly (since I’m always reading!)
  • Focus on editing what I’ve already written before starting anything new. Jotting down ideas doesn’t count! 🙂
  • If the work I edit is actually any good, I’ll increase my submissions from last year. (Yeah, I have that much stuff.)

    • Hey Michelle, yes I’m on Goodreads. I’m now becoming more active on it. I wasn’t as active on it before, but I’m getting better.

      Thank YOU for your encouraging comments! I hope you have a fantastic day! Hugs. Eva
