IWSG: On Fire!
Well ... it's that time of the month again ... NO! NO! ... not *that* time of the month (you know, when I complain of cramps and avoid water aerobics - - t.m.i.??) haha ... sillies ... It's time for the Insecure Writer's Support Group!! Come on! Join the fun at: IWSG
According to the purpose of the group: "Those who have been through the fire can offer assistance and guidance."
Fire ... as in: Do you have too many irons in the fire to achieve your writerly goals?
... or ...
Fire ... as in: WAIT! Don't throw your manuscript into the FIRE! Read this great book instead and improve that crazy writing style of yours!
... or ...
Fire ... as in: Set your blog on fire (in a good way) by following these simple BETTER blogging tips!!
Ha! There you go! Light a fire under those writerly goals and get to work!
What's the first item on your list to light on fire? I mean, light a fire under? haha!

I don't know if I feel "on fire" right now. I mean, I'm plugging along at my WIP. But I've been kind of "cheating on it" too. Shhh. Don't tell my characters. But I've been hanging out with some other story ideas, because I'm not sure the relationship I'm in with my WIP is going to work out ...ReplyDelete
So, more like "too many irons in the fire" than needing to light a fire, I think!
I've got more of a slow burn going right now. Working on a first draft and it's going rather slow but steady. I wish I had a magic fire that would make me burn through it faster.ReplyDelete
And I had to laugh. The monthly Insecure Writer's postings are a little like PMS for writers. :P
I'd say I'm in simmering-mode... a constant, gentle bubbling of ideas... just beneath the surface...ReplyDelete
MMMMMM I would have to say that how I feel this week i am probably on a low heat right now, but it's probably down to the fact I have a cold!!! But next week I'm sure I will be boiling hot!!ReplyDelete
Great metaphor. I'm off to find a torch!ReplyDelete
Hehe! Yeah, it might not be good to set things on fire, but the inspiration is there. Just need more time to do everything.ReplyDelete
I'm working through with NO excuses for not getting my writing done each day. Period.ReplyDelete
Resorting to rubbing sticks together. Matches in my pocket are wet and the tank of gas is empty so I can't get to the store.ReplyDelete
I'm trying to set a fire under myself. :)ReplyDelete
Ha, Margo! I have been very tempted to make a big bonfire of everything I've been trying to write lately! The fire under me would be very welcome - I'm hoping February will bring that fire as January certainly didn't! I love the humour on your blog! Thanks for visiting mine :-) LindaReplyDelete
I think my WIP is going to be seeing some fire if I can't figure out the stinkin' middle. It's frustrating when you know (somewhat) what you need, but can't find the words to get it on paper!ReplyDelete

Oh, thanks for all these links! I seriously need to light a fire under my WIP. My writing partner is waiting on me! :PReplyDelete
Cute post! I'd like to light a fire under my rear end some days!ReplyDelete
