Hey all! Welcome to the first Insecure Writer’s Support Group session for 2014. For those of you who are new to this community, I thought I’d copy what the host, Alex J. Cavanaugh wrote about it:
Purpose: To share and encourage. Writers can express doubts and concerns without fear of appearing foolish or weak. Those who have been through the fire can offer assistance and guidance. It’s a safe haven for insecure writers of all kinds!
Posting: The first Wednesday of every month is officially Insecure Writer’s Support Group day. Post your thoughts on your own blog. Talk about your doubts and the fears you have conquered. Discuss your struggles and triumphs. Offer a word of encouragement for others who are struggling. Visit others in the group and connect with your fellow writer – aim for a dozen new people each time.
It’s… another messy one, ladies and gents. Once again, I can’t go into too much description, but…
I have a bad feeling. Nothing concrete, but I can’t shake it. Nothing’s proving me right (yet). But nothing’s proving me wrong either. The big thing is: I’m not the only one with the bad feeling.
The sucky thing is that right now, I can’t do anything about it. Not until I’ve received some sort of confirmation. So I’m pretty much spending my time focusing on not thinking about it. When I do, I pray about it.
See, I believe that bad feelings don’t come for no reason. I also believe that my writing career thus far has been in God’s hands, so if there’s something wrong, He’ll help me find a way to fix it.
It’s a helpful belief to have. For the time being, I’m still able to focus my thoughts on creative activities. In particular, writing. But that said, I do feel my concerns gnawing at me.
Do you believe your bad feelings?
