2020 May IWSG

Hello everyone and as always thanks for stopping by. These are the co-hosts for February 2020’s Insecure Writers Support Group brought to you by Alex J. Cavanaugh and his team of co-hosts:

Be sure to stop by and show them some love! 

May 6 question - Do you have any rituals that you use when you need help getting into the ZONE? Care to share? 

Well, I rarely have these moments. I can usually write about anything. That’s not to say I don’t have writers’ block. But I rarely have a problem with that. I think a lot of writers and editors and musicians can relate we’re not necessarily extroverts. 

That being said, I’ve adapted to be “In The Zone” at any given time. Often I cannot pick and choose my spots. I need to look for opportunities to write even if it’s a series of 15 - 60 blocks of writing time. At the end of the week I’ll add up the time I spent researching and writing and only then will it become recognizable that I accomplished something significant. 

Question Do you look at what you are currently writing to feel good that you accomplished something or do you look at the overall picture to feel you reached a milestone?
