To share and encourage. Writers can express doubts and concerns without fear of appearing foolish or weak. Those who have been through the fire can offer assistance and guidance. It’s a safe haven for insecure writers of all kinds!" Check out other posts here.
My most pressing insecurities, because there are plenty, involves my family and how they interpret my passion for writing. It kills me to hear, "What are you waiting for, publish already?" or others saying, "Why bother?"
I will write regardless of publishing credits. It's what I love and it is what keeps me sane among the chaos of my life...kids, husband, house, work outside the home, work inside the home...on and on. But having support within my family, instead of doubt, would be nice. I've learned to put my writing among the long list of items to do. It's up there after putting the kids to bed and before laundry. And I learned not to feel guilty. It also helps that there are awesome people out there who understand. When I publish (putting it out there for the universe) it will be an extra incentive. =)
