Every month, we announce a question that our members can answer. These questions may prompt us to share advice, insight, a personal experience or story. The question is ALWAYS optional.
December 1 question – In your writing, what stresses you the most? What delights you?
What stresses me the most? Deadlines and a blank mind.
What delights me? Deadlines and a germ of an idea.
Writing is exciting and fun. If we can’t take pleasure in every aspect of it, what’s the point? After all, isn’t it a little like volunteering for our favorite charity? We’re the volunteer and the charity is the reading world. If we think of it that way, maybe we’ll take some of the pressure off. It’s our game, people. Let’s love it!
Oh, before I forget: I have some good news to share as soon as I can, and would love for you to sign up for my newsletter. Yep, I was instructed to create a newsletter. I’ve been putting it off for a couple of years but the time has come. I promise I won’t pepper you daily or weekly. I don’t have that much to say, but you can expect to hear from me about once a month. Take this journey with me … One way or another, it’s going to be exciting.
Merry Christmas, my IWSG friends!
