Hi all! It has been a while. I had intended to be back last week, but whoa boy! If you’re not in the US, um…last Wednesday was something else. Since I don’t want to miss anymore time, and we could all use something fun/funny, time for some news and a song.
It’s time once again for the monthly posting of The Insecure Writer’s Support Group (IWSG). The weird and wonderful time of the month where twittering fingers reach through their screens to connect with the world. Come see. 🙂
The optional monthly question: when are you most productive and why?
I tightened the question from a focus on specific months, which doesn’t really apply, to a general time of day question. I’m most productive in the morning before the day gets going, and my mind gets swirled with stress and busyness. It means I get up every day around 5 a.m. to write, making my writing priority number one for the day. My productivity means a lot to me.
Now, time for some news.
I know many of you have seen this next story, but I could not help myself. They just found a third one in California as well. Aliens, I’m going with aliens. 🙂
Happy Wednesday, folks! The middle of the week is here, and it’s the week before Thanksgiving. Even in a year like 2020, I have a lot to be thankful for, including, not surprisingly, fun news and music. 😉
Hello all! It is Wednesday yet again. Not only is it an everyday Wednesday, but the first Wednesday, which means it’s time for my posting for The Insecure Writer’s Support Group (IWSG). I’m pleased to be among those co-hosting this month’s posting. Please visit the pages of my fellow co-hosts–Jemi Fraser, L.G Keltner, TyreanMartinson, and Rachna Chhabria!
This month’s optional question is: Albert Camus once said, “The purpose of a writer is to keep civilization from destroying itself.” Flannery O’Conner said, “I write to discover what I know.” Authors across time and distance have had many reasons to write. Why do you write what you write?
I write what I write because the characters and what ifs that pop into my brain to begin the writing process refuse to go away until I write them as they grew. I make decisions about tense and secondary characters to further plot, but the foundation is an non-negotiable part of the idea.
Happy Wednesday! The final one for October 2020. Halloween is this weekend, Thanksgiving and Christmas right after. I’m already looking forward to putting up my tree. I want lights and prettiness to end this year. Until I put up my decorations, news.
It is time for my Wednesday posting once again. October is almost over, and Halloween is knocking. The last thing I remember it was summer. Time in general is always weird, but especially this year. I guess some news and a song will at least mark this one point in time for me. It’s an elusive target, but I manage to hit it on occasion. 😉
I leave you with an oldie but goodie. I loved this song when I was a kid. YouTube just helpfully put it in my feed when I opened it, so I could stroll down memory lane. Enjoy! https://youtu.be/7U9UQb80ZcI
