Is it really that time again? IWSG time? The last month has just whizzed by and I feel like I haven't achieved anything.
In actual fact though, when I think about it properly I've managed to get more done than the previous couple of months. I never seem to be satisfied with my progress though, however much time I manage to spend on something.
I've read two books in the last month, having not picked up a single one for weeks beforehand. I've got myself back into blogging and managed a couple of flash fiction stories for the Writers Wednesday blog hop (which is on later today by the way! ;-) ).
And still I feel like I should, or could, be doing more. Like every other writer out there, I have family commitments that keep me busy, and finding time for reading and writing is definitely a challenge. But lately it's been getting easier to find time to fit these things in, and I'm enjoying it again.
I just need to adjust my mindset to feel pleased with what I have managed to do, rather than fretting about what I haven't managed to do. I'll get there I'm sure, after all it's all about baby steps.
How about you? Are you ever satisfied with what you've managed to get done? Is this just part of being a writer, always feeling like you should be giving that little bit more?
