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!

I really feel like all this posters are trying to tell me something . . . I really should be writing right now too lol. Thanks, now I feel guilty (that's a good thing).

Fingers crossed for you, I hope you get some good news soon, in the mean time: You should be writing! LOL

Fingers crossed for you about the queries. And I love the inspirational(and slightly intimidating)images.

Annalisa Crawford said...

I really want to write, right now :-)

Good luck with all the submissions!

Clare said...

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*

Melissa said...

Gee. Maybe I should be writing. :P

Fun post. Good luck!
IWSG #215 until Alex culls the list again.

Natalie Aguirre said...

Love all the motivation. Hope you sit down and do it today.

Absolutely love this. I need to print all these out and put them up all over my house.

Fingers and toes crossed for you on the queries.

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

sjp said...

Hahaha that Castiel one is the best ;) do I have to write though? Can't I just stare at David Tennant?

Chemist Ken said...

Just keep writing. Not only will it help to pass the time, but you'll be doing what you love best. Just do it! Good luck, BTW.

Elizabeth Seckman said...

I think I need more male motivation :)

Cherie Reich said...

Yes, you should be writing. Or at least working on Super Famous, since OBaS is on sub. ;)

Jackie said...

OOH! Love the pics! :) I'd really like one of Adam Levine... LOL

cleemckenzie said...

Very funny! The only one missing is Uncle Sam with his finger out.

Good luck with that sub. Fingers crossed for you.

Chrys Fey said...

I have my fingers crossed for you that you'll hear back soon and that you'll receive some good news.

Christine Rains said...

I'm so pleased everyone loved these as much as I do! :) Now go write!

klahanie said...

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! :)

River Fairchild said...

I love the one with Mal! My hero. :)
Don't stress, just write!

Krista McLaughlin said...

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. :)

Shah Wharton said...

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

I can relate to the Waiting Game phase! Fingers crossed!

M Pax said...

What are you trying to tell me, Christine? lol I have one with Chris Pine telling me to get writing. Lurves it.

Lynda R Young said...

lol, I seriously love your list of people telling you to write. I should stick them up on my wall.

Jeff Chapman said...

LOL. Love those pictures. For the Sherlock one, you should add "Anything else is boring."

Nicole said...

Haha, now THAT'S motivational! :) Good luck kicking it back into gear.
