IWSG in Bullets
Thanks Alex and this month's minions:
I'm full of it.
Insecurity, that is.
Fortunately for me, there is this: The Insecure Writer's Support Group.
What am I insecure about?
You name it...this month I'm probably worried about it.
- I think my butt is getting wider. And squishier. Forty-something quite honestly sucks. I miss the days when Snicker bars were burned by watching Thursday night "must see TV". Yeah, it was a long time ago!
- My son, Cole, got a bite (see his "I wanna play football in college" post HERE) from the University of Chicago. Ack! I've seen the news and developed an unhealthy addiction to the Investigation Discovery channel. Put that together and you've got one worried mom! Sure, sure...if people believed everything they see on the news, then ya'll are thinking little ol' me is either out gettin' busy with my cousin or drivin' round in my pick up lookin' fer a gay guy to drag like some sort of Wrong Turn trophy. Logic tells me I'm crazy...but that doesn't quell my nerves.
- I am polishing up book three. And I need to take a serious look at marketing. I hear all kinds of good ideas...all things I know I should do, but there is this little part of me who is feeling the overwhelming weight of what all a writer needs to do to be successful. And I wonder when, if ever, I will have the time. The energy. The smarts. (Yeah, still putting off that Mail Chimp thing.) Quite honestly, there are those among us who make it look easy, but I know darn good and well they are working their butts, well let's go with fingers, off.
- I hate to drop the ball. It makes me feel lousy to realize there is something I should have done, but I failed to do it. It irks me and prompts me to have those, "I show up to class in my undies" nightmare. I really hate it. And during my blog rounds today, I saw this: Julie Flanders has a new cover to reveal. I bet there was a sign up...or a call from her blog for help...and I missed it. See? That makes me a bad bloggy friend. And bad = insecure.
Seriously, I could go on and on and on...but instead let's oggle Julie's new cover.
