Hello, friends! Welcome to July’s meeting of the Insecure Writer’s Support Group. If you’re a writer and if you feel in any way insecure about your writing, then click here to learn more about this amazingly supportive group!
I’m sorry. These last few weeks, I haven’t been doing much writing. I haven’t been doing much drawing either. I’ve fallen behind schedule on so many of the creative projects you wanted me to work on, and for that I owe you an apology.
Some big changes are happening in my life right now. Good changes. The biggest and most obvious change is, of course, that my first book is out. I’m a published author now, and I’ve had my first taste of that sweet, sweet writing income!
But any kind of change, even the good kind of change, can be confusing and disruptive, at least at first. I’m saying this not as an excuse but as an explanation. I neglected my work. I skipped drawing sessions and writing sessions. You kept trying to give me ideas, and I kept finding other things to do instead of writing or drawing. There’s no excuse for that.
I understand if you’re mad. I understand if you don’t want to talk to me right now since, from your perspective, it seems like I’ve stopped listening to you. But I promise I am listening. Things are starting to settle down in my life again. In some ways, things will be better than they ever were before… for both of us!
So dear muse, I’m eager to get back to writing, and I’m eager to get back to drawing. And if
your you’re willing to forgive me, I would really appreciate your help.
