IWSG - February
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. It's such an amazing group, it even has its own website now, which you can visit here.
This is the first time I've written a post for IWSG for a few months now - I'm surprised I haven't been kicked off the list! I'm back now, though, after a bit of a break, and I'm ready and raring to get writing again. The break did me a lot of good; I don't feel like I have too many insecurities today.
I suppose one that I do have is whether I can just pick up where I left off when I stopped writing. I haven't written for so long, I'm finding it a little difficult to pick it back up again. Part of this is due to a lack of time, but I'm wondering if there's some part of me that's afraid that I might try and fail.
I have a way to combat this insecurity, though; I'm just going to write. This weekend I have three days off work, so I'm going to use this time to open up my NaNo edits and get cracking on them again. I'll also take a look at my A-Z planning, and get that done. I am a writer, even if I haven't written anything for a while; therefore I will write.
