Alex J. Cavanaugh's blog.
Today is my first post for the Insecure Writer's Support Group.
Who me? Insecure. I write, therefore I'm insecure... I know I'm a good writer, but am I great? I get rejection after rejection until I want to scream. I even stopped writing for a while and gave away all my writing books. I wasn't going to come back, but the voice in my head wouldn't leave me alone.
So here I am, a glutton for punishment. I write, therefore I suffer.
I want my writing to be all it can be. I guess I need to be my own drill sergeant so I can shape up or ship out.
I get a lot of positive feedback on my blog post, but it's the editors and publishers attention I want. I think my problem is I get stuck. I can't get over certain hurdles. Once I try to go pass the 1000 word mark, my writing falls apart.
I would love your feedback. Critic my work.
The Insecure Writer’s Support Group
Purpose: To share and encourage. Writers can express doubts and concerns without fear of appearing foolish or weak. Those who have been through the fire can offer assistance and guidance. It’s a safe haven for insecure writers of all kinds!
Posting: The first Wednesday of every month is officially Insecure Writer’s Support Group day. Post your thoughts on your own blog. Talk about your doubts and the fears you have conquered. Discuss your struggles and triumphs. Offer a word of encouragement for others who are struggling. Visit others in the group and connect with your fellow writer - aim for a dozen new people each time.
Connecting: His page will list those who are participating. It also allows for comments if you have an immediate need. This where we can help one another. Check his page whenever you visit – if you can help a fellow writer, hop over to their blog and offer assistance. Be watching for updates!
