IWSG for June 2014

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 still waiting to hear back from novel, novella, and short story submissions. Tons of insecurities and anxiety there. I clean the house, check my email, water the garden, check my email, play hide-and-seek, check my email.

Instead of doing that, I really should be doing something else. I should be writing.

There's nothing more energizing than having my favorite people (fictional and real) telling me to write. Hope they inspire you too!

  4. I hope you hear back about your stories soon. I can imagine how frustrating the wait is.

    Those pictures are very inspiring. I'm finding it especially hard to refuse Thor. *drools*

  9. Write! It will take your mind off the waiting. Just don't water your manuscript. They don't grow that way...

  24. Hi Christine,

    Ah yes, write away, my good friend. Interesting posters. However, I should be writing when I feel like writing. Actually, I shall just leave it to Penny the Jack Russell dog and modest internet superstar! :)

  26. I love the one with Sherlock! :)

    The email checking thing can be addicting. Try disconnecting the internet on your computer for a little bit so you can write. :)

  27. Eric and David Tennent staring down at me telling me to write would do it... I need those posters. :P
