INSECURE WRITERS SUPPORT GROUP


I'm definitely lost in the ozone. It's February 1, already, another Insecure Writer's Support Group. For more info click on that little badge over there to the right. It will tell you all about it and send you to some other sites, where you can probably get some good advice about overcoming your insecurities. Unfortunately, that ain't gonna happen here today.


I've spent the last week trying not to become 'whale puke'. That's a reference from The Book, if you don't get it right off, don't ask. I am totally insecure about everything right now. Well, everything to do with myself and my wee little life. BUT, I have every confidence in you, Dear Writers. So, I'm gonna spend this day visiting your sites, all of your sites, looking for comfort and confidence. while I try to figure out just how long I can tread water.


Here's the good thing about this post. It will get you guys off that prison track. Words seem to be my enemy. 


      I never been to prison,
            but, I been to Oklahoma.
                               (NOT words from a song, but it could be.)


      What are words, if you really don't mean them
            when you say them.

  4. The blogosphere is a give and take, and today you get to take. Remember, writers are the worst self-critics, so don't listen to half of what your telling yourself! :)

  10. Love the comic. Hopefully some blog will speak to your heart today. I know sometimes it's uncanny how I find one that seems to "speak" to the exact mood I'm in. Try DL Hammon's his was exceptionally good today.

    We have all "missed the boat" from time to time, but that was ONE BOAT you REALLY didn't want to miss. Ha!

  15. Thanks for all the kind words. There are a lot of days when I feel like those dinosaurs - I just missed the boat.

    Strange how things workout. First I decided to go to Nineveh. Things should start to pick up. Right? Next, my 'Muse' up and slapped my face. It still stings. I guess I still have a ways to go. I suppose that's what I get for being so stubborn. Gotta work on that!
