#IWSG for February 2016: Take Two

2016 is upon us and it's time for my monthly IWSG post. Last year is history and it's time to make plans for the new year. No fretting over what was or wasn't done, it's time to move on (yes, I'm coaching myself).

The theme for this month's Insecure Writer's Support Group is TAKE TWO.

I've sometimes wondered why I write. Many of my author friends say the HAVE to write. I don't feel that way (until I am in the middle of story). I can go forever without ever writing another book. My readers keep me writing.

I enjoyed my two years off from writing much of anything except blog posts. I enjoyed the writers group that I started while living in Ecuador (and am proud it continues on with me gone). I enjoyed keeping in touch with my author friends. And I especially enjoyed getting time to read!

But now it's time for TAKE TWO, time to get back to writing. My goals for this year are:

  1. Finish the rest of my 8-12 (or maybe 6-10) year old short stories and get them published at Amazon.
  2. Write and publish book three in my Klondike Mystery series, "Almost a Touch".
  3. Ambivalent here - either book four in the Klondike series of book one in my new Lia Rules series (kick-ass PI, probably in the YA genre).

Have you ever had to put your writing on the back seat for a while? Did you come back?

I'm tired of talking to myself. Drop a note, please?
