Insecure Writer's Support Group
It's Insecure Writer's Support Group time, hosted by Alex J. Cavanaugh!!!
IWSG is a place to share/write/vent/blog about writing or whatever we feel the need to. Then, hop around and visit other writers, offering support, help, ideas, and so on. It's an amazing group!
There's also the IWSG website HERE that has loads of helpful info.
Last month, I'd discussed how I was 3/4 done with my current manuscript, but an idea for another story had filtered in and wouldn't leave me alone. I'd tried different things to tame this idea and put it on hold, but nothing worked. My thoughts were a chaotic mess!
I finally figured out why... this idea was the missing link to the WIP I'd been finishing up! I always knew something was off, and it's happened with other manuscripts, but I usually figure it out during revisions.
This time, it happened early, and I'm happy with how it's coming together.
At times, I get discouraged. I think every writer does. It's natural. But it's times like the above that helps me to appreciate the writing process. Thank you, IWSG bloggers, for listening and coasting me through it. You guys are the best!
