From the past few days, life has constantly interrupted my writing, in one way or the other. And as the Internet was down from the past one week, I could not visit any blogs or access my emails from my laptop. I had my doubts whether I would be able to make the IWSG post on time. But, thankfully the Internet connection has been restored and here I am.
I have somehow got addicted to meeting the deadline for the IWSG posts. IWSG is an online group for writers. We post on the first Wednesday of every month. This amazing group was started by Alex Cavanaugh - Author of Amazon bestsellers: CassaStar, CassaStorm, CassaFire and Dragon of the Stars. IWSG is a place where we writers discuss all about our writing and the million and one insecurities that afflict us in our writing and publishing journey. We also support and encourage other writers. Remember to check out the IWSG Website for awesome writing tips.
This month my main worry is when life interrupts our writing. From the past few days my writing has been going slow, due to a variety of reasons: family health issues, my viral infection and ofcourse the Internet being down (I could not research for my MS). Initially, I was quite upset with myself for not being able to meet my writing deadlines. But, things are really not in my hands. After the family health issue was sorted, I developed a viral fever; the cough is so bad that I am in no mood to even read, forget about writing my book.
I have decided to go easy on myself and not worry about the word count. I am going to take it slow for the next few days and will work on my manuscript after I recover. In the meanwhile, I am going to reread a few of my favourite books.
I am looking forward to visiting all your blogs and seeing what you all have been doing in my absence.
