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. I can only write so many posts on feeling insecure about my writing, which is pretty much a permanent state of being for me. The question this month is: What was your very first piece of writing as an aspiring writer? Where is it now? Collecting dust or has it been published?
So I’ve been writing stuff recently that doesn’t really fit here, but after some thinking I’ve decided that it’s my blog and I’ll do what I want. Therefore, I’ve decided to start a new series of posts that will just be my random thoughts on a topic (most likely not writing related). All the titles will start with On, so you’ll know what you’re getting yourself into. Welcome to the On Series, where I
rant write about random stuff.
Let me begin with a confession: I am a lazy bum who most prefers sitting at home reading or writing and eating chocolate-covered peanuts. This is a sad truth about me that is somewhat no longer true. Deep in my heart, I’m still that person, but I spend hours every week going against my instinct and I can’t remember the last time I ate chocolate-covered anything.
I know what you’re thinking. You’re a liar and a traitor, Ula!
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? Read More »#IWSG Wednesday #9
