Me? Insecure?

Well, it's that time of the month, not THAT time, jeez. I mean it's the first Wednesday and my second post for the Insecure Writer's Support Group! :p For anyone who doesn't know about this group, check out the awesome Alex J Cavanaugh.

Now, to answer the question from my title...Nope, not me. I'm not insecure right now as write this. I haven't been for a few weeks now.

Revisions are going good, in fact I'm very close to being completely done with revisions.

Writing in my WIP is going good. Most days I write at the very least 1k and sometimes even more.

I've found time to work on a ton of critiques and I've been getting great feedback from my CPs.

I 'know' tons of people that have been getting such great news. Publishers and agents, dates for book releases and even some that are just really getting a lot done writing-wise. Plus, several who've entered contests, and for many of them it's their first contest and I'm excited for them getting out there. So many people are getting shit done and I'm so happy for them.

I've even been getting in tons of reading time. Which, is a writer thing because I think all writers should be avid readers.

The point is, this is my second post for IWSG and I have no insecurities to talk about. I wish I could say something and in turn have some words of wisdom or something, but I don't. Sometimes we have bad days or weeks or more, but sometimes we have good ones. Insecurities happen and so do securities. They're both normal things and they both help us to be better, aspire us to do something.

To everyone who's having a rough week, hang in there because your secure week is coming and it's well deserved and worked for. Insecurities are good for the soul, they make you strive for the securities.

Happy IWSG Wednesday :D

Ha ha! Your opener cracked me up, Kela.

And yeah, we allllll have rough weeks. Heck, rough seasons where nothing happens or moves forward. Put in your time and keep writing, Kela!

I felt like that last month . . .and then I hit the insecure side of stuff . . with no real reason except for my blog.
