Quitting...July 2021 IWSG Post

July 7 question - What would make you quit writing?

My short, quippy answer was going to be that I'd stop writing if my fingers fell off. But then I started thinking about how often I allow writing to get pushed to the bottom of my to-do list and I realize that I let almost anything and everything stop me from writing. 
Then I get insecure that I'm not gaining momentum in my "writing career". 
I blame the market; I blame the timing...I blame everything but the person responsible for not putting words on paper. 
I suppose that's my epiphany for the day. 
Every time I find a reason not to write, I've quit being a writer. 

Thank you to this month's awesome IWSG cohosts!  Pat Garcia,
Victoria Marie Lees, Chemist Ken, and Louise – Fundy Blue- thank you!! 

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 - and return comments. This group is all about connecting! Be sure to link to this page and display the badge in your post. And please be sure your avatar links back to your blog! Otherwise, when you leave a comment, people can't find you to comment back.

Let’s rock the neurotic writing world!
