The January 2018 edition of The Insecure Writer's Support Group asks a soul-searching question of us writers.

Happy New Year everyone.

I hope that you all enjoyed the holidays. I'm going to try and refocus my efforts on my writing this year. And along with that theme comes the Insecure Writer's Support Group, and the January 2018 soul-searching question which is as follows:
What steps have you taken or plan to take to put a schedule in place for your writing and publishing?
I think I'm going to work on my edits for stuff that I feel has been mothballed due to all kinds of distractions in my real life. The schedule? Maybe every time that I blog, so three times a week on my computer for about an hour or so. I feel that if I get into this schedule, it may become habit forming (which is a good thing) and that I will progress through the projects I've piled up by chipping away at them slowly but steadily.

That's the hope at least.


  1. Welcome back!
    Getting back into the routine is the hardest thing. If you can do thirty minutes for three days, then you can do more and be on a roll again in no time.

    1. Thanks, Alex. I hope that your holiday was great and that you got a big pile of loot for Christmas.

  2. That sounds like a good hope and a doable schedule! Happy Writing in 2018!

  3. I always have a hard time getting back into a routine after I've lost it. Slow and steadily chipping away at it sounds like a good strategy to me.

    Happy New Year!

  4. I let too many distractions get in my way too. Guess we all do. Definitely you should get back to editing so you can publish the next book in the series. An hour a day seems like an achievable schedule.

    Good luck with the writing.

  5. Happy New Year!
    Unfortunately, no orange tree in the back yard, though there is a house nearby with one.
    We're growing a Meyer-lemon tree, but it's tiny still.

  6. Good luck and Happy New Year!

  7. Actually, I'm taking a break from writing and turning my attention to my first love, painting and drawing.

  8. Good luck. I know you can do it. Happy New Year.

  9. I'm so glad you'll be writing again, and I know just what you mean about too many distractions. As for me -- there's a novel I finally finished plotting out, so maybe I'll finish it this year.
