Insecure Writer’s Support Group and more

Another month has come and gone. I realized that I had accomplished a lot of writing in February. Now that book one of my first series is being critiqued by my critique partners I have allowed myself to start on new writing projects while I revise said book. Now that I have taken pressure off myself it is a lot easier to write and come up with new projects.

Also, March is going to be a very busy month for me. I’m going to be getting ready for the April Camp NaNo session. I’m taking an online class that starts March 18th plus trying to do all the writing I have planned for the month.

I have started working on a couple of new stories. They are in pre-planning stages right now. One of them is about fairies and the other one is about a psychic. I find it helps me when I get stuck on projects like the revisions to start something new and then I’m able to go back to the big project. Some people look at the list I have on here and say how can you work on all of that and stay sane. I say to them that it’s easy for me. I like to have on going projects.

Some writers like to work on one project at a time and others are like me they have many projects going. My advice is to find what works best for you as long as you are writing it doesn’t matter if it’s just one project or many projects.

    Great advice, Diane. I think different ways work for different people. And I even think that changes as you grow. Thanks for sharing. Happy IWSG.

    1. Hi, thanks for stopping by. I’m glad you liked the advice. I agree with you about it changes as you grow. Working on one project at a time worked for me a couple of years ago but I would hit a snag and not do anything else with it. Now I have several projects going at a time that way I hit a snag with one I have something else I can work on until the snag works out with the main project I was working on. 🙂

  2. I tend to jump around within a story myself, working on whichever chapter strikes my fancy, so I totally understand having more than one project going at once. It keeps you from getting to stuck in any one place.

  3. Good for you that you can do more than one project at a time. I do find that very difficult. Actually, I find doing one project difficult! May your critiques be worthy and helpful to you.

    1. Thanks. It is hard sometimes to work on multiple projects without feeling overwhelmed but when I get that feeling I work through it. My critique partners are the greatest and give very helpful feedback to me.

  4. Yeah, I tend to just work on one big project at a time, but I also find sometimes that if I write a short story or some other creative piece on the side, it ends up helping me with the novel by getting me excited to write again.

    1. Hi Luanne,
      I totally agree with you. My small projects help me in much the same way. It is great when I can work on something else and get excited about writing again. 🙂

    1. I agree with you about the stress. Writing helps to relieve stress that I might be dealing with in real life. To escape to my characters’ world for a little while helps me to calm down and deal with the problem causing the stress later on. 🙂
