#IWSG Wednesday #13

Today is Insecure Writer’s Support Group day, which takes place on the first Wednesday of every month. I skipped last month’s post. I hope you forgive me. I can’t remember what my reason was, but I’m sure it was good. Or maybe not… Make sure to check out other writers’ posts here.

The IWSG admins decided to add a question to inspire the posts, which is such a great idea.

This is my 12th IWSG post, which means I’ve been part of this group for over a year. I spent a few months observing on Facebook and reading others’ posts before I joined in. I’d like to take this moment to express gratitude for the support I’ve received from this wonderful group of people. I’m so glad to have found you.

Getting Back to Basics

So I’ve recently been doing a lot of thinking (and not much else writing-wise), and I’ve decided I need to get back to the basics.

My insecurity this month is actually this site, or maybe even more precisely something most writers love to hate: the author platform. For the last few months I have felt like I have lost my spark/passion for blogging and I feel lost as to how all this relates to my writing career.

So for some reason I thought I still had a day to post this, and then I noticed people were already posting their IWSG posts. Why are they posting early? That’s the trouble when you work from home, the days seem to melt into each other. As a result, this is going to be short, because I have to run to a parent-teacher meeting at my son’s school.

A Room of One’s Own

February seems a bit strange this year. It feels like a fresh start much more so than January did. Although it is still technically the middle of winter, it feels much more like spring. The snow melted some time ago; several times I have heard birdsong — the heralding of spring.

Is it too early to speak of spring? Spring after all, is a fresh start, a rebirth. Read more
