Insecure Writers Support Group
Alex J. Cavanaugh, who you can find here, started this amazing support group. There are so many of us out there. Alex had to have been inspired. To find out more, go find his blog. He's pretty darn awesome.
My insecurity--I have felt at times like I'd never get anywhere with my writing, never finish anything, never get to where I'd like to be with my writing . . . and the list goes on.
But, I also feel like as long as I continue to press forward, it's okay. Maybe I haven't been writing the two to three hours a day I had once planned--so what? If I do some researching one day, some brainstorming the next, some free writing, and then some outlining, I'm still working on my story, right? So, why should I beat myself up if I haven't written 10,000 words today, or even 2,000? I shouldn't. And neither should you.
Do you have insecurities? What do you do?
