#IWSG – Looking Back

Hello all! It’s the first Wednesday of the month and we know what that means:

IWSG-badgeIt’s time for another meeting of the Insecure Writers Support Group – #IWSG.

My hero, the amazing Ninja Captain Alex J. Cavanaugh founded this group and it has become a safe haven if you are an insecure writer.

Click the image if you would like to be a part of the #IWSG family. You won’t regret it.

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



The awesome co-hosts of the December 6 posting of the IWSG are Julie Flanders, Shannon Lawrence, Fundy Blue, and Heather Gardner!


December 6 question – As you look back on 2017, with all its successes/failures, if you could backtrack, what would you do differently?
Where would I even begin? 2017 had a mix of everything for me although little had to do with writing. That makes me sad. Don’t get me wrong; I’ve come up with a lot of new ideas that I’d like to put to paper, but it never seemed to happen. If it wasn’t my health, it was something else.
If I could backtrack, I suppose I’d have done more to push myself in all areas of my life. I would’ve gotten more involved in taking care of my own health, rather than assuming the doctors had it all right. I would’ve gotten my depression under control a lot sooner and thereby giving my writing more of a shot. Unfortunately, that’s the woulda, shoulda, and couldas, and I’m not going there.
I’m going to try really hard to make next year better in all aspects.
What would you have done differently if you could backtrack?
