IWSG: December 4, 2019


It's time for another Insecure Writer's Support Group post. If you are curious to know what it is, please visit here:

Let's play a game. Imagine. Role-play. How would you describe your future writer self, your life and what it looks and feels like if you were living the dream? Or if you are already there, what does it look and feel like? Tell the rest of us. What would you change or improve?


As my goals always have been, I would be an established writer who already published at least some books by now. My future writer self is someone who can just write in peace and continue to do what I love doing. It would be better to live somewhere more peaceful without confrontational neighbors. I'm a peaceful person, and prefer to live in a serene place perfect for writing. In order to achieve this, I'm willing to give up some "freedoms" to live in another country if that meant being able to write more in peace. This is why I've been interested in places good for retirement. I'm not retiring but I know these locations would be appropriate for a writer.

Since my Living Doll career is a part of my writing career, I would love to complete my Kawaii lifestyle before publication. 

In a sense, I feel I am living the dream partially. No, some goals have not been reached yet, but I realized it is a rare value to find your passion and do accordingly. Through observation, I've seen so many not satisfied with their jobs. Life is short, and I just don't want to waste non-returnable time on something I dislike doing. I'm glad I found what I loved doing early on instead of much later.

  1. That is good you found it sooner.
    I've heard Portugal is a great retirement spot.

  2. We were SO on the same wavelength of writing somewhere peaceful. Though I do believe it's a grass is always greener situation - I'm sure we'd find that anywhere in the world comes with its share of problems.

    1. Yes, I do research and know not any country is a perfect fairytale place. But I just prefer to live more peaceful than where I live now with hostile neighbors.

  3. Relish the time you have to write while you are still so young. I wrote early but didn't return to it until my mid-30's.

    1. Yes, I'm glad I decided to devote my time on my career, on what I feel is most important. Interesting...
