IWSG: Slow and Steady

Time for another posting with the Insecure Writer’s Support Group, where writers can share their insecurities and encourage one another. IWSG was founded by Alex J. Cavanaugh and we share our posts the first Wednesday of the month.

The question this month is: If you could use a wish to help you write just one scene/chapter of your book, which one would it be? It’s not in a book (maybe it could become one someday), but there is a scene in my fantasy short story I occasionally dabble with. I have the scene building up to the climax, but I cannot seem to find a way I like to move from the climax to the conclusion. Ironically, it’s rather anticlimactic. I cannot tell if the excitement of the event died down too quickly, or if I drag out explanations too long before the end. If that bit would suddenly work itself out, that would be great!

In other news, I am still working through organizing my room. It has been a slow process because there were a lot of things going on during my days off last month. Hopefully, I will make some headway this month since I’m taking some extra time off. I did finish the first category in the KonMari Method, which is clothing. Around that time, I felt my creativity flowing, so I finally sat myself down at the computer to work on some writing, including a story I started for this month’s WEP. I cannot make any promises about getting it finished in time, but I do have that extra time off, so we’ll see.

Good luck to all the A to Z Challenge participants! I wish I could have participated this year, especially since it is the 10th anniversary, but I still need to work on getting my life more in order. Maybe next year!


  1. Real life comes first.
    Hope you finish in time to post for WEP.

  2. Can you cut from the climax to the conclusion? I find when I'm having trouble connecting two scenes, sometimes the connection is unnecessary. But as I haven't read it, I have no idea if that would work. Good luck.

  3. I too decided that I wasn't going to do A/Z this year, even though it would have been fun for the 10t anniversary. Seems like you are doing good with your organizing! Way to go!



Thank you for stopping by! Please feel free to leave a comment and I will visit you back :)
