The year has eaten up four months. It’s time for another Insecure Writers Support Group (IWSG) post. IWSG is a support group for writers which posts on the first Wednesday of every month. We encourage and support each other through our posts as well as talk of our insecurities, fears, anxieties and doubts. IWSG was started by Ninja Captain Alex Cavanaugh. You can check out the IWSG website.
This month my main fear and insecurity is that my writing is going to get interrupted big time. There are so many things lined up for this month: family functions, travelling, editing two novellas (that my editor would like to carry in a serialized form for the newspaper) that my current WIP will not get my undivided attention. I have also heard of two short story competitions which I hope to participate in.
I had planned to finish the first draft of my WIP this month. Looks like I will have to postpone the deadline to end of next month. This is causing me loads of anxiety and irritation. I am seeing the world through grumpy eyes.
How do you all handle it when life and other things push your WIP far, far away from you? How do you handle postponed deadlines?
P.S. My next post will be on 23rd May. I am exhausted after the A-Z Challenge and loads of writing awaits me. I will still be lurking around blogosphere and spying on you all and commenting. Till then happy writing.
