I didn’t realise the first Wednesday of the month had already passed until I checked the calendar this morning, so I’m three days late with this post. I hope you’ll forgive me!
Honestly, I’ve done barely any writing since Christmas. I desperately need to get back into a structured routine, but between working from home and home-schooling my daughter, I’m finding it hard to muster the energy and motivation. My WiP is never far from my mind, though. Hopefully I can get back on track during February half term.
This month’s optional question:
Blogging is often more than just sharing stories. It’s often the start of special friendships and relationships. Have you made any friends through the blogosphere?
There are several bloggers whom I’m very fond of and admire greatly, but my particular brand of introversion means that I’m pretty useless at maintaining real-life friendships, let alone the online variety. I always aim to comment more, but I’m not as active in the blogosphere as I’d like to be.
There are a handful of writers and book bloggers that I think I have a lot in common with and could see myself being friends with in real life if we lived nearby. Olivia, Amber, Greg, Ronel, AJ, Roland, Kristen and Cee spring to mind off the top of my head. I have followed them for a long time, enjoy reading about their lives and have always appreciated their encouraging comments on my blog and social media.
The Insecure Writer’s Support Group post on the first Wednesday of every month. We want to help writers of all stages to overcome their insecurities, and by offering encouragement we are creating a community of support.
Have you made any friends through blogging? Do you have any writing news you’d like to share? Let me know in the comments!
