December 5, 2012 - Insecure Writer’s Support Group




Well, here we are again, time for the Insecure Writer’s Support Group post.  Last month at posting time, we were still without power and water as a result of Hurricane Sandy.  We’re fully back in the world . . . complete with both of us sharing a cold/flu bug between us.  I’m on the mend but still feeling a bit rough.

Truth be told, although I have thought about writing, I just can’t seem to get back in the groove.  This is my brain on decongestants/antihistamines = _______________ .  Flatline.

Well, okay, one afternoon I did work a bit on a chapter outline for my WIP.  I guess that counts.

Do I sound a bit insecure?  Absolutely.  Seems like this year it’s been one “forest fire” right on the tails of a previous one.  About the time I’m feeling “normal,” along comes something else that knocks me on my butt.  My energies (physical, spiritual and creative) are continually focused on maintenance of daily routines and recovery from whatever crisis just presented itself.  My butt has just about been kicked to the curb in 2012.

~~~~  sigh  ~~~~

I’m just going with the flow, reminding myself that there is a time for everything.  Right now I’m working on getting the last remnants of this bug out of my system, enjoying the holidays and winding down 2012 with a hopeful outlook towards 2013 as a less eventful year, at least a less negatively eventful year.  Positive events?  Bring ‘em on!

Thanks for stopping by!


I am a Warrior.


  1. Here from Alex's blog. FWIW, you're not alone. I've been where you are many times. The only remedy to finding time to write is making it. One blogger recommended waking at 4:00 a.m. on hectic days. She said it took a while to get used to , but it really helped. This person wrote two books. I've done it a couple of times so not to break my momentum. After three years of working on my draft, I'm ready to be done so I can move onto a new story.

    I like your blog and am now a follower. Best of luck with your book.

  2. Good luck with your wip. 2012 is almost over. Envision yourself getting rid of the troublesome year and starting fresh in 2013. Happy IWSG post day. :) Oh, hope you kick that cold in the butt!


It's your turn. Say something!
