IWSG December: Downswing

The first Wednesday of every month is officially Insecure Writer’s Support Group day. Writers post their thoughts on their blogs, talking about their doubts and the fears they have conquered. It's a chance for writers to commiserate and offer a word of encouragement to each other. Check out the group here.

Due to some personal stuff, the bottom completely fell out of my productivity in November.

Sometimes that just happens, I guess. Writing isn't my job, technically it's a (passionate) hobby. It's not the number one priority, so sometimes it needs to be put aside. It sucks, but that's what it has to be. The trick, I suppose, is not to get too hung up on it. It would be very easy to get caught up in the stagnant inertia and just give up for while. I've seen it happen to others. It's happened to me. I know this is a down time, and will accept that, and move on. I'll keep writing what I can, when I can, and eventually I will get to a place where I have something I'm ready to share again.

It's a cycle. All of this has happened before. And all of this will happen again.

This guy is waiting for me when I don't meet my word counts.
I'm not going to worry about it today. November was a write-off. December won't be a hugely productive month either I'm sure, but that's okay. We've got bigger things to worry about at the moment.

Let's go decorate a fucking tree.
