The Insecure Writer's Support Group was created by Alex J. Cavanaugh as a place where writers can talk about their insecurities once a month, and receive encouragement and support from other writers.
I'm still on a high from getting my dissertation finished last month, so my insecurities aren't too bad at the moment. I'm trying not to worry about what mark I'll get for it, since I don't find out until November, and there's no point in worrying anyway; it's not like I can do anything about it.
My insecurities now mostly lie within the prospect of starting new projects, although I would say my excitement to start them far outweighs any insecurities I might be feeling. I'm hoping to do NaNoWriMo in November - I've only ever done the Camp ones during the summer before, so it should be fun doing the original one.
I know which of my ideas I'll be using for this, all I need to do is actually start planning. There's a lot of work that needs doing: character profiles, outlines, research. It's taking me a while to get back into writing after my break, but I'm feeling quite confident; all I need to do is get started.
I've joined three Halloween themed blog hops (so far) which I'm really excited about: Spooktoberfest (hosted by Dani and Jackie), Write, Edit, Publish (Halloween edition), and the Halloween Blog Hop. I've had plenty of ideas swimming around in my head for them, so I can't wait to actually start writing the stories. I should have plenty of ideas to choose from.
I also feel like I've been slacking off with my blog lately, due to my dissertation and everything, so I'm hoping to start spending more time on blog posts, and hopefully be able to visit other blogs more than I am currently. I have plenty of time now that I've finished my degree, so I should be able to dedicate more time to the Blogosphere.
