Hello fellow bloggers. It is the first Wednesday of the month and we know what that means, right? Time for the Insecure Writers Support Group – #IWSG.
The group’s purpose is to allow writers to share their doubts and fears, trials and tribulations without fear of being mocked or feeling foolish. It’s also a place where writers who have “been there” can offer wisdom and guidance.
Whenever anyone finishes a draft, edits their work, finds the perfect critique group, publishes their work, or has any other good news to share, this is the place to do it too!
The awesome co-hosts for this month’s posting of the IWSG are Nancy Gideon, Bob R Milne, Doreen McGettigan, Chrys Fey, Bish Denham, and Pat Garcia!
Make sure you pay them a visit and thank them for all their hard work!
I’m not going to lie. The past several weeks have been brutal to me. I haven’t been feeling well (long story) and it’s turned life upside down for me. The first half of the year was pretty amazing as far as my goals were concerned, but now I feel like I’ve moved forward only to take five steps back.
It’s frustrating. I’ve only been able to clear out ONE of my email accounts so far. I have posts in my folder from hops that I had intended on participating in last month that I wasn’t able to get to. That irritates me even more. I don’t like doing that.
The hosts of the blog hops I regularly participate in know my situation and understand that there are times that I’ll miss posting. Because of that understanding, I’m kept on the list. I LOVE them for that. The reason I’m wary of joining one time, or mini blog-hops is because I never know what’s going to happen or how I’m going to feel. Lately, it’s always something.
I’m trying to stay positive, but it’s becoming increasingly difficult. I’d been on such a great course for most of the year, but part of me wants to roll up into a fetal position next to Sophie on the bed and just suck my thumb.
I hope this lethargy and uncertainty are side effects from not feeling well lately. I need my body to jump-start back into action again. I have far too many things I want to accomplish in the coming months.
How do you handle times when you’re veered off course and have fallen behind on important projects?
