The End Is Near…

What is it about the fall that has me scrambling to finish everything I ever started and never finished? I know the answer is, because the end is near. The end of the year that is, and my goals are up there hanging on my office wall (the office I don’t write or work in) letting me know I’m about to fail.

I only set 10-goals for myself each New Year and I usually do pretty well, this year not so much. I’m going to give myself a pass and change up my plan a bit. In the mean time I will keep writing and moving forward. There is still plenty of time to catch up and there is all that writing fuel (candy) to look forward to this month.

How about you? How are you doing in the goals department?

It’s the first Wednesday of the month and that means it’s time for the monthly meeting of the

Purpose: To share and encourage. Writers can express doubts and concerns without fear of appearing foolish or weak. Those who have been through the fire can offer assistance and guidance. It’s a safe haven for insecure writers of all kinds! Posting: The first Wednesday of every month is officially Insecure Writer’s Support Group day. Post your thoughts on your own blog. Talk about your doubts and the fears you have conquered. Discuss your struggles and triumphs. Offer a word of encouragement for others who are struggling. Visit others in the group and connect with your fellow writer – aim for a dozen new people each time. Be sure to link to this page and display the badge in your post.                                        Let’s rock the neurotic writing world!

October 4 question – Have you ever slipped any of your personal information into your characters, either by accident or on purpose?

Why yes I have! Thus far I’ve written nonfiction books and I’ve been a character in all of them. (All of them meaning 2, lol.) That said, I am plotting a fiction series and I’m creating characters based on my friends, family and a few celebrities. All I have to say is if you didn’t want me to write about it, you shouldn’t have done it.

The awesome co-hosts for the October 4 posting of the IWSG are Olga Godim, Chemist Ken, Jennifer Hawes, and Tamara Narayan!


Be sure to stop by and thank them!

Happy Writing,
