Insecure Writer's Support Group #5

It's time for the Insecure Writer's Support Group again. You can sign up here.

This month's co-hosts are Feather Stone, Beverly Stowe McClure, Mary Aalgaard, Kim Lajevardi and Chemist Ken. So, thank you to them.

Every month there is an (optional) question and this month it is: Do you have any rituals that you use when you need help getting into the zone?

The short answer is "No". The longer answer is "No, I haven't got time for that. I've barely got time to write, never mind time to ritualise something that is extraneous to the writing itself."

My outlook has improved slightly since last month, and I've been working on a couple of pieces and a couple of pitches, but my now fifteen-month-old son is now taking his first steps, climbing everything and getting over his immunisations. The brief chances I had to write any more than this appear to have well and truly disappeared.

A toddler! How fun. I know you're probably exhausted, but enjoy this time. They grow so fast! Faster than you can ever imagine. Happy IWSG. Glad you're safe and healthy. Congratulations on our beautiful boy.

Sorry your son has hit that age. It won't last forever. said...

It's so tough to get stuff done when the kiddos are that age. It doesn't last, though. Before you know it, he'll be graduating from college like my son. *gasp*

Toddlers are a wonderful age, although they can be quite a handful. ;-) As others have said, it doesn't last long. Enjoy this moment while you have it.
