IWSG: On An Insecure Writer’s Insecurity

Already into the second month of the New Year.  Who said time stands still for no one?  He or she hit it dead on.

This insecure writer has already started writing her head off for the year:  Two short story eBooks on Amazon, 1 script completed, and preparing another one for a contest submittal.

All the insecurities are out of the closet now.

This is one tough arena, this writing business.

Insecure Writer's Support GroupI write it.  Who reads it?

Is it good enough?  Why not?

I feel as if I’m writing for myself and, in a way, I guess I am.

I thought that the more I write, the easier the words would come.

Silly girl.  Every day is a challenge. Enough to make one think about a “real” job somewhere.

Words flow, making no sense.  Rewrite, rearrange.  Now it comes together.

On bad writing days, I feel like a truly tortured soul.  On good writing days, I soar.

This is my solitary life.  The life of an insecure writer.


  1. Hey bff. Finally finished my post. Took almost over 3 hours and all my energy. Tough stuff. I know how you feel, and it’s because of that feeling, I never like to miss this time of the month. I love you girl. I read your email and Yes, yes, yes. You are my Godsend. 🙂

  2. Great post! You’ve captured feelings and thoughts I think most of us experience on a regular basis.
    However, the further I come in writing, the less I find it to be a solitary life–quite the opposite actually. I interact with far more people than I did before I joined the writing community. And I love the fact that there are so many people with the same experiences willing to share and help me through the rough days.
    I hope you have a fantastic month!
