Today is the first Wednesday in March, and you know what that means.
Purpose: To share and encourage. Writers can express doubts and concerns without fear of appearing foolish or weak. Those who have been through the fire can offer assistance and guidance. It’s a safe haven for insecure writers of all kinds!
Posting: The first Wednesday of every month is officially Insecure Writer’s Support Group day. Post your thoughts on your own blog. Talk about your doubts and the fears you have conquered. Discuss your struggles and triumphs. Offer a word of encouragement for others who are struggling. Visit others in the group and connect with your fellow writer - aim for a dozen new people each time. Be sure to link to this page and display the badge in your post.
Let’s rock the neurotic writing world!

So, how is life treating you? Do you have any insecurities? What are insecurities anyhow? They likely are different for each of us. I was sailing along, fairly secure, working on ideas to promote my forthcoming book. Fun stuff.
Then, edits came for another book. Lots of edits. Like rearranging scenes, and other changes. Great advice about what's not working. I can see the problems now. They do need correcting.
Well, I am a slow writer. I can spend hours on one page. So now I'm promoting and editing, along with wanting to write another short story for a Christmas Chicken Soup book and a memoir for Writer's Digest contest.
How is it writers can sometimes go for weeks and months with little to do, except maybe a WIP, and then all of a sudden everything happens at once?
I'm not complaining. I'm happy about my stories. Everything will work out. I know. The promo, the editing, the short stories. Who needs to sleep anyhow?
Thanks for listening. Any tips appreciated.
Happy Reading and Writing.
