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.
This Wednesday I’m cheering for all writers to “keep moving forward”.
It can be easy to allow yourself an easy way out, especially when things aren’t going as planned. You may start out with a great idea, start typing then you hit a brick wall. Or you share a scene and the feedback is a little disheartening.
Writing is tough, but the joy of the finished product is well worth the effort. Each word that is typed, is one more word you are closer to your goal. Whatever happens on your way to prize, just don’t give up.
When writing gets tough, I like to find a positive quote.
One of my favorite quotes from the Walt Disney Company and the movie, “Meet the Robinsons”(2007) is:
“Around here, however, we don’t look backwards for very long. We keep moving forward, opening up new doors and doing new things, because we’re curious…and curiosity keeps leading us down new paths.”
Keep learning and surround yourself with other positive creative people. You will eventually get there.
