The first Wednesday of every month is officially Insecure Writer’s Support Group day. Members post about their doubts and fears, discuss struggles and triumphs, and offer words of encouragement to others who are struggling.
April 4 question - When your writing life is a bit cloudy or filled with rain, what do you do to dig down and keep on writing?
This question really hits home, as it no doubt does for most authors. I can go from a glass half-full to a glass half-empty in the drop of a sale.
Finding balance is tough. We all need goals, something to strive toward. But when those goals aren't reached it feels like failure. So we step back. Maybe we take in a movie, read a good book or take a few days off.
All we can do is lick our wounds (just a figure of speech:), take a deep breath, grow our writing and try again. In the words of the immortal Scarlett O'Hara tomorrow is another day.
