Welcome to Insecure Writer’s Support Group hosted by the Ninja Captain Alex J. Cavanaugh! Writers “meet” the first Wednesday of every month and discuss their writing insecurities.
Hello! I signed up for Insecure Writer’s Support Group today. It’s really a great group. It’s nice to realize there are writers out in the blogosphere who struggle with writing also. And to be part of a network that encourages and supports each other.
After a month of NaNo, I’ve been feeling a little discouraged and lost, trying to figure out what to do now. Of course, having my computer crash at the end really did not help matters.
One morning, I turned my computer on and a blue screen stared at me. You know the screen without icons and no easy way to reboot? It’s a sight that makes your stomach drop. I thought all my work went bye-bye.
My computer guru husband told me not to cry or panic. I managed to comply even though deep down a crying jag would have been nice. So several days went by with me trying not to worry about my manuscript and other writings.
After work today I came home to a surprise. With bright eyes and wide smile,my husband announced he deserved a kiss.And yes he did!
He managed to tap into the hard drive and retrieve my NaNo WIP. My hero!
Now that I can access my Ghost Hunter Love WIP, maybe I can decide on what to do next and tell DISCOURAGEMENT to go take a hike.
