I need to trade television for more hours before my memoir writing computer. However, my husband needs time too. Maybe between the end of the news and Criminal Intent at eight o’clock, I could trade an hour. Or I could ask him if it is a rerun. Trouble is, he won’t remember. So I could go down, identify the re-run for him and go back upstairs to write until nine.
Of course, I could get up at six o’clock and write for an hour. That would probably be the best solution. And on some calendar I should block out writing time refusing to trade for doctor, dentist, or other interruptions.
I do need to get started again or I’ll never finish “Home from the Woods” by the end of the year.
Agent queries could still be sent out. Water aerobics, Mahjongg, and Tai Chi would still be accomplished as well as backgammon with my husband, right?
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.
Let’s rock the neurotic writing world!
