The Insecure Writer's Support Group (IWSG) is the brilliant idea of Alex J. Cavanaugh. The purpose of the group is to share doubts and insecurities and to encourage one another. Please visit the other participants and share your support. A kind word goes a long way.
I'm skipping my usual Wicked Wednesday post because I feel I've been lacking substance in them lately. Actually, I feel like I'm not doing enough blogging and networking. Yes, yes, look how many posts I've been putting up and I have a ton scheduled for this month, but I've cut back on my time spent online and I feel badly for it.
I need to write. I'm sure everyone understands that. I want to increase my productivity and for that, I need time away from the internet. While I'm forgiving of anyone else that says such a thing on their blog, I find it difficult to forgive myself. It's not unusual that I hold myself to different standards than other people. I know as a writer, the most important thing I need to do is write. I need to balance it with everything else in my life. Logic has no place amongst emotions, though.
Do you hold yourself to different standards than you do other people?
