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.
My insecurity this month is a common one: I'm struggling to find the time to write. I haven't worked on my dissertation properly since I got back from Spain over a week ago. What with unpacking, doing more overtime at work to make up for what I missed while I was away, and getting back into routine, my writing has been neglected.
I was hoping to spend a lot of time catching up this week, but then I caught the flu - maybe it's nature's way of telling me to slow down a little. I'm feeling a little better today, so hopefully I'll be able to get some work done a little later on. I'm not too worried right now, because I've got plenty of time before the deadline; it just means I'll have to work a little harder to get it all done in time.
