Welcome to Insecure Writer’s Support Group day, which takes place on the first Wednesday of every month. The purpose is to share and encourage, express doubts and concerns without fear of appearing foolish or weak, as well as offer assistance and guidance. It’s a safe haven for insecure writers of all kinds! Make sure to check out other writers’ posts here.
Being a writer means you forgive yourself a lot. Or maybe that’s being human?
I’m learning as I work towards my writing goals, I often don’t accomplish what I intended. It comes with the territory I guess – I plan more than I can realistically get done.
Last month I got sick with the flu. It must have been some nasty virus, because I was out for 3 weeks and I’m still recovering. Writing just wasn’t on the radar most days.
Obviously, I had to let go of my writing plans and heed my body’s needs. On the upside, I slept like I haven’t in years and I read more once I wasn’t sleeping through the days.
I forgive myself, and then I move on to what I need to do.
Do you always accomplish what you set out to? How do you deal when you don’t?
P.S. – Remember how I was all ready for spring last month? I’m still waiting. Some snow fell last night, although it’s mostly melted already.
