The first Wednesday of the month means Insecure Writers Support Group. If you aren't familiar with the group, find out more HERE, including the link to sign up. And also, HUGE thank yous to Alex J. Cavanaugh for starting the group, and his co-hosts this month, Chemist Ken, SL Hennessy, Michelle Wallace, and Joylene Nowell Butler! We really appreciate what you are doing to keep this group going strong!
I had actually written a whole different post a few days. ago. I was feeling especially low, like want to crawl under the covers and cry low. Very disconnected from people, and really unmotivated. But, I ended up having some nice talks with people, reading some great posts (including this one by Theresa Paolo) about the ups and downs of being a writer, and well, I feel better now!
Going out and reading peoples' posts always picks me up. It's so comforting to know everyone feels like that sometimes. We all have moments when we doubt ourselves. And it's a lot easier to say, 'hey, but that's crazy! You rock!' when it's someone else! Seeing that people whom I admire and whom I think are crazy talented doubt themselves, too, helped me realize it really is just part of the process.
So if you're feeling down, remember that you are not alone! And this too shall pass.
