IWSG December 2020


Heyyyy, yesterday was the first Wednesday of the month, right?

Whoops. Oh, well, you get my scintillating IWSG post today!

The question for the month is:

Are there months or times of the year that you are more productive with your writing than other months, and why?

And the answer is...

Not really. But kind of.

You don't think I'd just leave it at that, do you?

I've been writing about how writing challenges tend to select one of three months out of the year: April, October, and November.

There are nine other months! Why does it always have to be those three?

So, on my own, there would be no particular time when I would write more than others. But given challenges like NaPoWriMo, NaNoWriMo, OctPoWriMo, the November PAD Challenge, the April Poem a Day Challenge, the October Spooky Writing Challenge, and the A to Z Blogging Challenge, I end up being forced to write more than I normally would during those times.

Granted, I volunteer for the abuse. 

So, to sum things up, the answer to this month's question is, yes but no.

Or maybe no but yes.

And that's all I have to say about that.

Y'all have a productive day, now. Or an unproductive day. Whatever.

  1. I am always blown away by just how productive you are despite the many challenges you face.
    Which is probably true of many writers and is part of the reason they are my heroes.

  2. That's interesting! Never gave a thought why challenges happen in those months only.

I try to get comments published as quickly as possible. I have ADHD and anxiety and sometimes I need to work myself up to be able to respond to comments. I don't always reply to comments on my blog, but I do try to visit as many people as possible when I participate in blog hops. I share your work on the monthly Roost Recommendations posts at ornerybookemporium.blogspot.com so others can discover your work. I do read and appreciate your comments.
Sorry, the Captcha is back and this time it's staying. I was inundated with spam comments when I turned it off. I wish butt rash on all the spammers out there.
