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:
- Finish the rest of my 8-12 (or maybe 6-10) year old short stories and get them published at Amazon.
- Write and publish book three in my Klondike Mystery series, "Almost a Touch".
- 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?
