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.
Honesty . . . well the truth is: I've been struggling with the whole publishing industry lately. It is hard. On so many varied levels, it is hard. No, I don't want to quit, but the traditional publishing industry and its many gate keepers have contributed to my need to see a therapist. And yet, I'm not ready to delve into the self-publishing world. It's scary to me. "Honesty is the first chapter in the book of wisdom" . . . according to Thomas Jefferson.
"When is your next book coming out?" people often ask me.
Right now. I'm doing the best I can with so many different aspects of the industry. The next book will come out when the universe decides it is time. Until then, I'm working on my mental health, physical health, spiritual health, and . . . I am really enjoying doing freelance editing. If you ever have a need for another set of eyes on your project, I'd love to take a look. Editing brings me great joy. Click here for more information about my editorial services.
