A Quick IWSG Post: April, 2014
Wow, totally forgot about it being the first Wednesday of the month.....time for more ginkgo biloba!
Anyway, many of us in the blogosphere know what that day means. It means it's time for another post to tell our fellow writers, as well as anyone else who'll listen, about our insecurities when it comes to writing.
The Insecure Writer's Support Group! (cue fanfare)
This one came to me a couple of weeks ago, as I was gearing up for trying to get back into the blogging swing of things. I started thinking about why I never really bothered posting blog links to my Facebook page and then it came to me. I have one of the most basic insecurities there is and I never realized it before. I'm not all that comfortable with friends and family reading what I've written.
I'm not even really sure why that is. I mean, they've always been supportive of my writing and have never given me any negative feedback regarding anything I've ever written.
Maybe I'm just uncomfortable with the idea that someone I know, one day, will say the equivalent of "Ugh...this sucks"?
I don't know.
I don't mind criticism at all, but I guess it might sting more coming from someone I know? Anyway, this is just one of those "things I'll have to work through" and we'll see how it goes.
Many thanks to Alex J. Cavanaugh for coming up with the whole IWSG thing, in the first place, and to his co-hosts this month Hart Johnson, Chemist Ken, Candilynn Fite, Terri Rochenski, Clare Dugmore, and Lilica Blake.....show 'em some love for their efforts! :)
We now return you to your regularly scheduled A to Z month.
