I’ve been part of Insecure Writer’s Support Group on Facebook for a while now. The first Wednesday of every month, many of the members write posts about their insecurities, and so today I join in for the first time. Make sure to check out other writers’ posts here.
This week I did something brave (for me), but it was preceded by a titanic load of insecurity. Thoughts of inadequacy, general suckiness, and self-pity overtook my mind. I almost didn’t go through with it. I closed the tab on my browser. My insecurities were right, who was I to think I was good enough, my writing was ready, or that anyone would want to read my drivel.
