It's that time again, IWSG, where we share success and insecurities about writing.
Last month I made great headway on my WIP. I separated all of my characters and am writing each of their stories up to the climax, and then I'll tie everything together.
I found that when I do it this way it's easier for me to focus and spend a lot of time with one character. I am also hoping that I get rid of any time issues I've had in previous incarnations of this work. Character growth and change *should* be easier to spot.
This Blog. I had so much enthusiasm when I started and now, I guess I am not so confident that what I have to say or share is in anyway helpful, meaningful or interesting. While posts helped me while I wrote less fiction, finding a balance while I *am* writing, is proving more difficult than I expected. I regain focus in my fiction, and lose it for the blog.
I have tried different approaches and they haven't been holding my interest. Perhaps it is that I have given this blog too narrow of a focus and I should allow more flex in it to meet my needs.
Don't have that one worked out yet. Do I want to continue blogging? Yes. Do I need inspiration? Definitely. Maybe it's time for another makeover ....
I do those way too often, a clear reepresentation of my indecision, for sure. But to be fair, I have in my life been in a point of flux and change the last few years, and all the old systems just don't work anymore. I've changed my approach to novel writing for what works for the *new me* and I've been in the process of changing my life to match.
It then makes sense that I have to find a way to make my online persona (and blog) a match as well. So, a makeover it is. *sigh*
