It is Insecure Writer’s Support Group time and it couldn’t come at a better time for me. As always, I must thank the wonderful Alex Cavanaugh who has created this most safe and secure setting for us writers to vent our insecurities.
I am editing my first story. I am subsequently having it critiqued by two very diligent CP’s. I have to find about 12,000 words to add to my second novel in order to declare the first draft finished. I have a really good outline for my third story and I am dreaming about it every night without prompting which is kind of cool. I don’ t know if I should start writing now or wait for Nanowrimo. With all that in the air, I am insecure and scared and frustrated and tired with occasional bouts of mania.
Will I ever get to the point where I feel like my life is clicking on all cylinders or is that something that only us writers can create for our characters?
I just want some steady, on tracking, moving forward type of progressive in my writing. Stephen King writes 2,000 words per day. That’s the kind of stability I want.
Anyone else ever feel like they wish they hadn’t started this whole writing thing. Now that I have started, I can’t stop, but I just wish it would be easier every once in a while.
