This is my first post for a group I joined recently called The Insecure Writer’s Support Group. Yes, when it comes to my writing I am very, very insecure. I’ve had far too much rejection going on.
The group was started by the amazing Alex J. Cavanaugh. If you haven’t heard of him yet, just click on the group logo in the sidebar and be whisked away to the blog.
Alex has given insecure writers like me a forum to listen to writers, be consoled by writers, and offer encouragement to other writers. Believe me, when you try to make a living at this, you need all the help you can get.
So, this post is just an introduction to the group and a heartfelt thank you to Alex for providing this special forum.
Most of the members write books. I don’t: I’m much too AADD for the level of concentration required to author a novel. I write poetry and shorts, which I’m turning into scripts and screenplays for television or the stage.
All you need for this is imagination, of which I have an over abundance from my days as a Kindergarten teacher.
I’m looking forward to meeting my fellow support group members. I’ll drop by their blogs and hope they’ll visit mine. After all, this writing business can be an awful lonely space.
