My December IWSG Post and Holidays


We have reached the last post of 2022. For me it has been a fantastic writing year as I have 4 books published this year and have signed several more contracts for next year. Touch wood. Next year I hope to start querying literary agents for my new books which I hope to finish writing by mid 2023.

Its always fun to do the IWSG (Insecure Writers Support Group) Post on the first Wednesday of every month. IWSG was started by Alex J Cavanaugh, he is the author of Amazon Bestsellers: CassaStar, CassaStorm, CassaFire and Dragon of the Stars. Do visit the IWSG website for some amazing articles on writing and publishing.

The awesome co-hosts for the December 7 posting of the IWSG are Joylene Nowell Butler, Chemist Ken, Natalie Aguirre, Nancy Gideon and Cathrina Constantine.

December 7 question - It's holiday time! Are the holidays a time to catch up or fall behind on writer goals?

Holidays are a time to catch up with family and friends for me. I seldom achieve my writing goals during the holidays. Nowadays, I’m trying not to stress too much if I don’t meet my writing target for the day, because even when I don’t write, I’m still working on my book, but in my mind. One good thing that has happened from the last few days is that I’ve started digging into my extensive TBR pile and enjoying disappearing into another writer’s story world.

What about you all? Are holidays a time to catch up or fall behind on your writing goals?

Wishing everyone a Merry Christmas and a Happy New Year in advance.



  1. Congrats on all your publishing success this year. I don't worry much about writing goals during the holiday either.

  2. You've had a busy year with books! Take some time off and enjoy.

  3. Congratulations on a wonderful writing year! Hoping the next one is even better. :)

  4. The first half of December is hectic but the second half settles for me.

  5. Four novels in one year! That is fantastic! Almost unheard of. I'm so happy for you, Rachna.

  6. That's a lot of writing and publishing to get done in one year. Congratulations. All of that seems to segue nicely into taking a deep breath and relaxing here at the end of the year.

  7. This time of the year is a good time to sink into our TBR lists and enjoy some stories.

    Happy Holidays, Rachna!
