Insecure Writer's Support Group

Time for IWSG!

I am honestly shocked that's it's already August.

I mean, what the hell? I know time is relative and all that, but where did the summer go? Seriously! I feel like we JUST got out of winter.

But the good thing about August is it means it's time for the MN Renaissance Festival and the MN State Fair. I will attend both events multiple time and eat too much food and complain about the terrible summer heat.

Other things are going on, of course. Mainly, a lot of writerly things.

Writerly things on my plate:

  • Must tackle and complete all edits for ALL THAT REMAINS from my lovely editor
  • Must try and finish WIP (this is the goal set to me for this semester by my wonderful MFA Mentor Laura Ruby)
  • Begin (and hopefully finish ASAP) sequel to ALL THAT REMAINS.

So, yeah. I mean, it's only three things, but they're not little things. They're just like, oh I don't know, write entire novels and revise entire novels and all that fun stuff.

So, maybe I'm feeling a bit insecure about that. I mean, these are problems to HAVE, amiright? And I'm up for the challenge. I also think there's a good chance that maybe I'll be some sort of maven of productivity and manage to juggle all three of these balls at once.

But there's also a chance I'll drop them all.

Time will tell I'm sure.

Ah, the state fair! All things can be pondered while ambling through a good fair.

Rena said...

w00t! ren faire fests! I haven't been to a ren faire in a really long time. And then I started going to dragon con! It's like a ren faire combined with a star trek fair and an anime fair and an everything fair (what was the deal with guy riding the harley and playing a trombone??). So yeah, good fun.

Though, a ren fair would be nice...

Goals should be simple and accomplishable. I think eating too much at the fair is a very good goal, lol.

I should come visit you in Minnesota because I've never been to Minnesota.
