#IWSG: What Would You Change About 2017?

First Wednesday of the month is Insecure Writers Support Group!

Purpose: To share and encourage. Writers can express doubts and concerns without fear of appearing foolish or weak. Those who have been through the fire can offer assistance and guidance. It’s a safe haven for insecure writers of all kinds! For complete details visit:

This month's IWSG question up for discussion is: "As you look back on 2017, with all its successes and failures, if you could backtrack, what would you do differently?"

My answer: The first thought that popped into my mind dealt with the current political nature of the country; however, the followup thoughts were . . . I wish I could go back and be nicer to people, do more kind things for others, make more people smile. Because while I might not be able to change the landscape of the entire country (or world for that matter), I can change the trajectory of one person's day . . . simply by smiling or saying hello or being charitable. We all can. Imagine that. ;) 


  1. That's a lovely thought to take forward for the new year. We all need more positivity.

  2. Making others happy when you're with them is the best idea ever.

  3. Wow. That is a wonderful answer. Now I feel awful that I didn't think along those line. Well, we can those things this month (tis the season for goodness) and continue them next year. :)

  4. Hi Margo! I'm new to IWSG, but I have met you somewhere along the way. Probably during several years when I participated in the A-Z challenge.

    That was a great post. Short and sweet and so true. So here is a smile from me to you. Have a wonderful holiday season and best wishes for 2018.
