IWSG - July 2018
The Insecure Writer's Support Group is a group of writer's who post once a month about their insecurities, and then visit each other to offer help and support.
It's been a long time since I last posted, back in April. I really can't believe it's July already; this year so far seems like it's been both really short and really long.
There are a few reasons why I've been absent for so long; I've had a few health issues, nothing serious but it's been one illness after another this year. Then I was in a car accident in May, thankfully Jamie and I came out unhurt, but the car spent a month getting repaired. We've also been house hunting this year, we found two houses we really wanted but unfortunately both fell through.
So, overall, it's been a bit of a rough year, and because of this I haven't got much writing done. However, I'm an optimistic person and I'm hopeful that the worst is over, so it's time to get back in the habit of doing the things I love, blogging and writing being top of the list.
Here are my goals for July:
- Post at least one blog post a week
- Read/listen to at least 3 books
- Work on edits for my novel, and maybe a short story or two.
- Go to the gym at least once a week.
And now onto July's question: What are your ultimate writing goals, and how have they changed over time (if at all)?
My ultimate writing goal is to be able to at least partially support myself with my writing - I would love to be able to work part-time and spend my days off writing. I work full time at the moment, and sometimes it's so difficult to fit writing in.
