Insecure Writer's Support Group (Goodbye 2018!)

Happy December, and Happy Chanukah! It is the last first Wednesday of 2018, so that means it's time for the last meeting of the Insecure Writer's Support Group for the year. The bulk of 2018 was a roller coaster that I'm very ready to hop off of, so let's get on with it! I've said a few years in a row that the next year will be my year, but as I enter the realm of self-publishing, I can say with confidence that I will make 2019 my year.

This month's optional question is: What are five objects we'd find in your writing space?

I've never really had a writing space. When I was younger, I was able to zone out and write wherever I was. I would like to get back into that habit. If I had to choose five objects, they would be my laptop, 2 blankets, a cup, and a plate--because I'm usually on the couch in my perpetually cold living room.

As always, a big thank you to Alex J. Cavanaugh, the creator, for this group. Stop by his website to visit him and our co-hosts for this go-round. You can also join the fun on the main IWSG site.

Have a merry Christmas, and enjoy the rest of the holidays!


  1. You need some heat in your house.
    There you go - make 2019 yours!

    1. lol It rises to the 2nd floor, so we have a heater downstairs. Thank you!

  2. Merry Christmas to you and yours Deb, and best wishes for you for 2019 :)

    (I'm with you with having a blanket close by!!)

  3. Hopefully instead of a roller coaster next year, you can jump on a smoother ride. :)

  4. Sounds like you're ready for 2019 - I bet you'll rock it!!! :)
    I have a writing space, but I mostly write in the living room!

  5. I can't believe it's December already! This year blew by. We'll own 2019. I can feel it. Happy Holidays!

  6. You've got a great attitude for next year! I'm still hoping that I'll get my book finished this year and maybe next year will be the year for publishing!

  7. I hope 2019 is a brilliant year for you and your writing.

  8. If it's not near a thermostat, those portable electric fireplaces are really nice.

    Good luck on 2019!

  9. Wait, do live in my house? I'm sitting on my couch, under a blanket, drinking hot chocolate and I'm still cold. :)


  10. Merry Christmas, and good luck with your goals in 2019! Hopefully next year is less tumultuous.
