Insecure Writer's Support Group - November 2012

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 apologize this is a day late. It's been a hectic month. So much to do! It's also NaNoWriMo. Yay! For all those participating in it, good luck. I'm Kalligenia on the site if you want to add me as your buddy.

I've been dealing a lot of self doubt lately and tons of frustration due to everything I need to get done and lack of time. So I'm offering up some encouraging quotes to hopefully inspire both you and I.

"If you're going through hell, keep going." ~ Winston Churchill

“You may encounter many defeats, but you must not be defeated. In fact, it may be necessary to encounter the defeats, so you can know who you are, what you can rise from, how you can still come out of it.” ~ Maya Angelou

“It does not matter how slowly you go as long as you do not stop.”  ~ Confucius

"With ordinary talent and extraordinary perseverance, all things are attainable." ~ Thomas Foxwell Buxton  

"Let perseverance be your engine and hope your fuel." ~ H. Jackson Brown, Jr.

    I too am feeling so overwhelmed and cannot seem to find time to finish anything lately.
    I am really trying to get back on track by writing every day even if it is just a blog post.
    Its kind of silly but I have been bribing myself lately and it kind of works..lol
