Insecure Writer’s Support Group

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.

  1. Hi Charlene
    Welcome to IWSG. You’ve come to the right place. We all feel “lost” and alone at some stage or the other… you’ll connect with lots of fellow writers going through similar things, and this is a wonderful platform to share these experiences…
    Congrats on your NaNo success!

    Like the idea.

  3. Best of luck with your manuscript!

    I had a computer die on me in the first week of December – motherboard failed, black screen of nothingness. It wasn’t my primary writing machine, and I was able to copy everything off the hard drives, but still, it took me a while to get my working schedule sorted out after that.
