IWSG December

This is my Insecure Writers Support Group post for December 2020.

Alex's awesome co-hosts this month

Pat Garcia,
Please stop by their blogs and say thank you

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

Yes. Most definitely. During November and December, I usually get less writing done because of the holidays. Although this year has been different. 

I took the pandemic-related advice to do my Christmas shopping early, and I had the carpet cleaned (which forced me to de-clutter). That left me with a clean house and very little to do during the latter half of November. Other than putting up the Christmas tree this week, I won't have much to do in December either.

There are other times of the year, such as tax-prep time and months when I have a lot of continuing education to do for my job, that I find it almost impossible to gain any word-count. 

But sometimes life surprises me. I love it when I set my expectations low because of a busy schedule and then end up having unexpected time to write. :)

IWSG is the brainchild of Alex J. Cavanaugh. It's a monthly bloghop that offers a safe haven for writers to express their feelings and concerns without fear of appearing foolish or weak. It's also a venue for offering support, both in the form of comments and positive posts. Writers of all kinds are welcome. 

We 'meet' the first Wednesday of every month. If you're interested in learning more, click on the link above. And don't be intimidated by the size of the group. We're not expected to visit everyone on the list
