If ever there was a better time to write, I surely don’t know when that could have been.
And spin my head does.
When Alex J. Cavanaugh started the Insecure Writer’s Support Group, perhaps he had an idea of just where the business of writing was headed. Maybe he was already there, beckoning to the rest of us to join him.
The whole writing process scares me. I know I can write. I even like to write. I wonder constantly who will read my writing. Anybody out there?
Do I need an audience? Of course I do. But I’m writing also for myself. I’m insecure because I’m often lost in the moment and feeling selfish about being in it.
Why write? Writing is panacea for my soul. I’m happiest when I’m lost in that moment where nothing else matters. I’m sailing along at the speed of thought, fingers flying across my mac and ideas coming to mind faster than I can make them come to life. I’m writing!
Does it hurt to be a little insecure? I think not, especially if there is a group of talented, supportive people willing to listen as one writes about that insecurity.
Thank you, Insecure Writer’s Support Group!
