Insecure Writer's Support group is posted the first Wednesday of every month. It is the brain child of Ninja Captain Alex J. Cavanaugh. Get your fears and insecurities out or give words of encouragement. We're writers, let's support each other!
If you read my last #writemotivation update then you'll know I'm having a confidence crisis. I have notes from two people for Out of Secrets and I have been putting off looking at them for months. At first, I wasn't sure why. I just kept finding reasons to put it off, to do something else and avoid thinking about it. Finally, it hit me: I wasn't sure the story was any good.
My recent reread of Snapshots has left me uncertain about every story I have sitting on my hard drive. Are any of them good? Worth editing and publishing? Do I have the skills to make them good enough?
I feel alone – even though I know I'm not. I've been assured that I'm not the only one feeling this way. A comfort, but that doesn't answer any of my questions or solve my confidence dilemma. I suppose the only answer may be to work through it and prove to myself that I can write.
