IWSG February check-in: Beginnings and endings
What does it mean when all I have with me that's connected to my writing is a small laptop with limited memory? And a rough draft awaiting those hopefully final much-labored-over edits? Nothing has really changed. Each day I will find those precious hours before others awake to keep working.
Maybe I will start something new this month.
Maybe I will finish a chunk of those final edits.
I only hold this constant: each day I will set aside some time to write.
Tomorrow we'll go out on some kind of a skimmer boat to see the birds. Egrets, great blue herons, osprey, brown pelicans, a few spoonbills. Maybe I'll bring home a new story idea. For now, I will cherish each day. Watch the wind buffet the palms and the black-headed gulls fly low over the canal on Padre Island.
This first Wednesday of the month, for the Insecure Writer's Support Group, we're supposed to check in, to report what challenges we're facing and to encourage others in the group.
Check out what other IWSG writers are doing HERE. Persevere. Write those good words that make up your unique stories. Make it a good month!
