This is my Insecure Writers Support Group post for November 2022.
Alex's awesome co-hosts this month are:
and Diane Burton!
Please stop by their blogs and say thank you.
November 2nd question - November is National Novel Writing Month. Have you ever participated? If not, why not?
Nope. I'm one of those authors who wishes NaNoWriMo participants well then disappears for the rest of November.
Why? I work full time in addition to my writing. And, because of the holidays, November and December are two of the busiest months of the year. There's just no way I could squeeze in writing a novel, so I don't even try.
Honestly, I often shake my head at whomever chose November for this. Maybe it's because the kids are finally settled into school, and the weather is turning too cold (up north, at least) to be outside much, but I don't get it. I might participate once I retire, but for now, no thank you.
For those of you who do NaNo, I offer my best wishes and this link:
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.
