IWSG: Ain't nobody got time for that!

First Wed of Every Month

(Check out the IWSG website here.)

It's the first Wednesday of the month. . . and not just any month, of NOVEMEBER! Which means it's my second IWSG! So I was going to write a long and detailed post about a famazing (Fabulous + amazing = famazing. Yes, that is a word. I am a writer, therefore I am allowed to create words.) idea having to do with relationships, both in writing and real life, but you're just going to have to wait, because I need to get back to my novel.

My quick thought for today is this: I have basically been guilting myself into writing this month. Which can be a good thing! Guilt can be a very good thing, when you put it to good use. It took me a while to discover that guilt is good for something. Just make sure you channel it toward the right things. I've learned I need to turn my guilt into determination and PRESS ON.

So, fellow Wrimos, PRESS ON.

And, whether you're a Wrimo or you're a Wrimo looking for a break, I have three things for you to do today.

1. Watch this!
LOVE LOVE LOVE Kid President! Best use of YouTube EVER. This his latest. . .so much truth here.

2. Go over to Faith Hough's blog and wish her congratulations on her new baby!!

3. Send an email to a writer who inspires you. Whether or not they are doing Nano, encourage them to PRESS ON in whatever they are working on. Seriously. Don't put this off; it takes less than five minutes.

So that's it for my IWSG! Now back to my book. . .*sigh*. Writing rocks.


  1. Guilt and deadlines, the two strongest forces in the writing world.

  2. You can do it, Annie! I can't wait to read some of this new NaNoWriMo ms!

  3. I'm not sure if you ever participate in "tagged" blog hops, but I went ahead and tagged you in The Tag You're It Blog Hop. Feel free to play along or not play along at your leisure. You just have to answer four questions and tag three others. My post is at:
