Insecurity. It's so real, it even has its own Wikipedia page.
It's born from fear.
Fear that you're wasting your time. Fear that you will never reach your goals. Fear that people are laughing at you behind your back about how stupid you are to think someone like you could succeed.
But take comfort.
There are plenty of us who feel just as stupid as you do.
We've just decided, we don't care.
Now, go get to work.
This is an IWSG Post
Purpose: 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!
Posting: The first Wednesday of every month is officially Insecure Writer’s Support Group, day. Post your thoughts on your own blog. Talk about your doubts and the fears you have conquered. Discuss your struggles and triumphs. Offer a word of encouragement for others who are struggling. Visit others in the group and connect with your fellow writer - aim for a dozen new people each time.
Let’s rock the neurotic writing world!
Thanks to our IWSG creator, Alex J. Cavanaugh and this month's co-hosts: Allison Gammons,Tamara Narayan, Eva E. Solar, Rachel Pattison, and Ann V. Friend!
