Welcome to Insecure Writer’s Support Group day, which takes place on the first Wednesday of every month. The purpose is to share and encourage, express doubts and concerns without fear of appearing foolish or weak, as well as offer assistance and guidance. It’s a safe haven for insecure writers of all kinds! Make sure to check out other writers’ posts here.
So for some reason I thought I still had a day to post this, and then I noticed people were already posting their IWSG posts. Why are they posting early? That’s the trouble when you work from home, the days seem to melt into each other. As a result, this is going to be short, because I have to run to a parent-teacher meeting at my son’s school.
Time seems to be slipping from me and that’s how April is going to be, I guess. I’m doing the A-Z Blogging Challenge. Unlike last year, I didn’t have the posts written beforehand, so I am writing like a madwoman every day and then trying to visit as many other blogs and comment as I can. (I’m even typing this super fast, so sorry for typos.)
My insecurity this month is where my focus is: can I actually get all this written, visit other blogs, comment, reply to comments and not neglect my family and actually get work done? Something may have to give at some point this month. As of today, I have the next two posts written. My goal is two write at least one to two or even three each day, so maybe at some point I’ll have them all written and posted and I’ll just be free to visit other blogs.
Thank goodness I made my list of words for each letter and selected pictures ahead of time. If I was doing that I’d go berserk.
This was going to be an entirely different post, but I guess that’ll have to wait until next month.
How are you doing? Are you participating in the A-Z Challenge? How do you handle overcommitments?
