IWSG - June

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.


So, it's been a really long time since I actually blogged properly. The last IWSG post I wrote was way back in March! Sorry about the absence. 

My new laptop came yesterday, so now I have no excuse not to get back into full-time blogging, and I've got to tell you, I'm pretty excited about getting back into it. I've really missed blogging.

So, my insecurities this month? Same old stuff really; even though I have my laptop now, will I have the time to blog? Will it be enough to bring me out of my writing slump? 

Well I'll tell you right now, I'm determined to get back into this. I will find the time to blog, no matter how many hours I'm at work, and for me the more I blog, the more I write, so one thing will lead to another. I'm even toying with the idea of doing Camp NaNo next month; I've had a few story ideas brewing for years now that I've wanted to write during a NaNo month. 

Yes, I have plenty of insecurities this month, but I am determined not to let them pull me under. I will become a regular blogger again, and I will start writing again. 

Already, it feels good to be back :)

  4. I'm in the same place as you! I've missed some IWSG posts and a lot of blogging. Hopefully we can both get back into it! Enjoy your new laptop!

  6. I'm getting back into blogging myself, which is why I'm doing the IWSG today. It's frustrating though because for some reason I can't comment using my Wordpress account, and my old Blogger account doesn't lead to my current blog, though I've put the blog in my Google+ profile. (My blog is 'My Antimatter Life' which is #271 on the IWSG list.)

    I hope you have the greatest of success with your return to blogging, and with Camp NaNo.

  10. Welcome back to blogging! It seems a number of us are/were going through blogging slumps. Sometimes we just need a bit of a break, get some perspective then jump back in. :)

  11. Woot on the new laptop. Blogging slumps happen. I blog less. Make a plan that makes you happy, then it's easier to stick. Work with yourself.

  13. If you want to do camp NaNo, I was thinking about it too. Maybe we could be 'chain-mates'….

  14. I got a new laptop too. Last month. I am loving it but haven't done as much writing with it as I hoped.

    Glad to see you're back! :D

  16. Good Luck getting back into the swing Miss Laura. All you need is a small window each day or every other day to do a little bit and then post as and when things get finished. I look forward to your return. . . .

  17. The important thing is you're back now. Good luck getting into the swing of things.

  18. You're right, Laura; for some of us blogging and traditional writing go hand-in-hand. Once I realized that blogging was legitimate writing for me, I felt much better about the time I was spending on it. It is a new genre and an exciting one. How exciting to have a new computer! You'll get back in the groove!

  19. Congrats on the new laptop! I'm sure it will help you blog and write more. NaNo is quite a challenge, but everyone who does it comes out better than they went in. Any writing is good writing!

  20. I'm having the same problems, and I'm also trying to get back into a blogging groove. Good luck!

  21. Welcome back! Jealous because I properly need a new laptop, lol. Yeah, it's all about a regular output, whether blogging or writing, and I'm glad they encourage each other for you. Camp NaNo would be a good kickstarter, with a definite goal in mind.
