My Most Productive Months and December IWSG

There is a huge sigh of relief from my side, as 2020 is inching to an end. A year that saw most of us cocooned at home, with all kinds of uncertainty looming large on our personal horizons, keeping a safe distance from the outside world, spending more time with masks and sanitizers than we have ever spent in our entire lives. Hope 2021 sees Covid-19 finally going away from all over the world. Where are you Miss Vaccine?

As I have restricted my blogging to just once a month on IWSG days, I look forward to that a lot. IWSG (Insecure Writers Support Group) is an online writers’ group posting on the first Wednesday of the month. IWSG discussions centre around all aspects of writing, publishing and marketing. Do visit the IWSG website if you haven’t already done so.

IWSG was started by the multi-talented captain cool Alex J Cavanaugh, author, blogger, musician always ready to spread goodwill and cheer, constantly supporting and promoting other writers. Alex is our Santa Claus with his bag of goodies (read support and help). Alex is the author of several amazon bestsellers: CassaStar, CassaStorm, CassaFire and Dragon of the Stars, with more bestsellers on the way.

 As there is a question of the month to build our post around, it comes as a saviour for many of us, who at times run out of topics.

December 2 question - Are there months or times of the year that you are more productive with your writing than other months, and why?

Yes, for me definitely there are some productive months like January (I am in a hurry to set a target for the year and achieve my writing goals) March and April (I always try writing new stuff in those months, July (from the past few years I give myself a birthday present in the form of some writing, a picture book, a chapter book or stories), September to November (where I tend to revise and polish my manuscripts a lot). This year I wrote a lot from March to September as I was on a deadline and had to submit my new book to my publisher. There are some months where I tend to go slow on my writing.

What about you all? Any special months where your productivity is at its peak?

Wishing you all a Merry Christmas and a very Happy New Year in advance.
