Insecure Writer’s Support Group

Wow. I can’t believe it’s time for another IWSG post. For those of you who don’t know, IWSG is a monthly bloghop where writers can share insecurities and encouragements about writing. You’re always welcome to sign up, so if you want to find out more, click here.

So… I don’t really have anything new to be insecure about. I mean, I’m still pretty close to being a nervous wreck about a multitude of writerly things, but I’ve discussed most of them at length already this past month, so I’m just not feeling like going over again.

Instead, I’m going to be very naughty and link you to something IWSG-related that I posted on Monday because I forgot I needed to save it for today.

Hope no one minds!


P.S. Alternatively, you can check out my query crits at Unicorn Bell this week. I’m still new to this, so I’d love it to see some friendly faces. πŸ™‚

  1. Keep writing. Do whatever you have to do, but don't let the fear get to you.

    IWSG #268 (until Alex culls the list again or I goof and get myself deleted. :P)

  2. Hi Misha,

    Mostly good stuff I'm reading here. No need to be a nervous wreck. After all, this is “I Was Seeking Gary” time πŸ™‚

    I've said it before and I'll say it again, keep the pressure off and all will be fine. Trust me. Penny the Jack Russell dog and modest internet superstar has told me so!


  3. Great post. I know what you're saying. While working on my current wip, I often find myself checking email, reading blogs, anything but writing. I guess I'm a little scared of this story. It will all turn out okay. Nice to “meet” you.

  4. I wasn't online on Monday so I popped back to that post. I've read that most stars – even mega stars – still get stage fright before they go on. I guess new story jitters are something like that.

I'd love to know what you think, so please leave a comment!
