Write Now

WIP Wednesday ~ the writing variety

This is a bit delayed for a WIP Wednesday post, I realize that. It’s because I’ve been doing more thinking about the content than writing of the post. (Not always a bad thing.) And I’ve been making a new graphic for it, naturally.

Now, I don’t actually have any Writing WIP progress to share with you. But I have decided that it’s time to stop messing around and get serious about the whole writing thing. I have a few ideas on how to do that, but one of those steps is accountability, which is where the blog comes in.

I won’t be posting exclusively Writing WIP Weds posts. There will still be Knitting WIP Weds posts too. But I plan to do at least one of each per month. There will likely still be more knitting than writing at least at first, since I have momentum there already.

But. Progress needs to be made.

I’ve been mentally blaming kitty chemo on my lack of energy and progress and productivity for a while, but I don’t have to manage that any more. And while I’m still sad because of it — well, I used to do my best writing when I was being angsty and emotional. Getting back into writing might at least be a good place to channel my sadness and loss.

Anyway. I intend for this to be the sign of good things to come. Have a wonderful day!

  1. Nicole, I think this is an excellent idea. (I might even join you, if I can get up the courage.) But I’m so sorry to hear about your kitty. Having just gone through something similar less than a year ago, I know how much it hurts. Sending you a big hug and warm thoughts, and wishing I could bring you tea and scones.

  2. Awww so sorry to hear about your kitty baby! That is so hard. ❤️ I do hope you start writing!! That is something I totally support with any one I meet who wants to write. I think its something everyone can do… the two biggest steps are starting (hahaha) and keep writing until you finish (easier said than done!)

    1. Thank you so much!

      And yeah, starting is always the hardest part for me. (Well, starting and then not being distracted by a shiny new idea…)

  3. So sorry about the kitty cat- I know how hard that is. Writing is very therapeutic. At least for me. Even if the story doesn’t make any sense or is purely self indulgent. I’d love to see what you write sometime!

    1. Thanks – it’s hard, but at least I know from experience that it also gets easier.

      If I get stuff I like enough to share, I have in the past shared snippets of what I write. I’m not sure if I’ll do that again here, but it’s a distinct possibility!
