Happy New Years IWSGers!

Hey guys! Happy New Years!!! ^^ :D So it’s another IWSG Wednesday which means it’s time again to share our fears, failures, successes and give advice or encouragement.


Right now I am working on revising my YA faery novel and…I hate it. It’s not horrible and certainly not hopeless, but during the holiday season and the crazy work hours that went with it, I put revision off and now I am working like a madwoman to catch up. I’ve also got so many little brands in the fire that it’s really kind of distracting, but they aren’t things I can put off right now. I’ve discovered that this piece really should probably be in third POV and so that sets me back even further. I really do like the story, but this part of the revision process is the part that I really hate. I want to get some opinions on it sooner than later, but it’s still too early in the process and I’m afraid that I won’t get the kind of feedback I need because I’ll be changing what I would have been sending out anyways. I kind of just want to face plant on my keyboard and call it a night, but that’s not really an option.

What do you do when you’re discouraged and on a deadline?
The Insecure Writer’s Support Group is a wonderful place where writers can share their worries and failures as well as their successes and advice. Led by our fearless leader Alex J. Cavanaugh, IWSG meets the first Wednesday of every month and you can join on his site here. There's also a brand new website now so be sure to check it out here.
