August 1, 2012 - Insecure Writers Support Group




July and August certainly are not panning out as expected.  What’s that saying?  Something about sharing your plans with The Universe and then watch it step back and laugh?

Emergent appendectomy and subsequent cancer diagnosis have captured my attention and energy (physical and spiritual) since my IWSP July post.  When I’m not dealing with the physical or business (i.e., personal paperwork, insurance) aspects of this unexpected presence in my life, I am focused on spending blissful time with Dave and  Maggie. 

Just shows you how your life can change in a heartbeat.

So it dawned on me as I was surfing the Web during the predawn hour just now – wow, it’s almost time for another IWSGP post!

Am I insecure about my writing?  Hell no.  At this point, if I wanted to find something to be insecure about, I have a variety of choices presenting themselves for selection.  Writing is not exactly at the top of the list these days.

Truth be told, I’m not feeling insecure about much of anything.  My inner strength persona of Sarah Connor has stepped up to the plate, ready to kick butt and take no prisoners.

Well, okay, I do confess that I have teary/mushy moments now and then, but they are not related to fear or insecurity.  These moments come with the simple joys of walking hand-in-hand with Dave, hugging and playing with Maggie, during phone conversations with friends, and so on.

Nope, that’s not insecurity. 

That’s just loving Life.
