I feel so blessed and honored (IWSG)


I’m not as insecure this month as I usually am. Maybe it’s because I’m getting off a high of finishing my first round of rewrites, which I thought I would never get through or finally achieving my first publishing credit, by having my short entry accepted and included into the IWSG Guide to Publishing and Beyond. Once again, a huge thank you to the IWSG Team for all their hard work and making the e-book possible. I’m among great company and feel so honored.

The Insecure Writers Support Group was created by the talented Mr. Alex J. Cavanaugh, so that writers can share their insecurities and/or encourage others who need support with their own. You can visit Alex Here, or if you want to join us in discussing our insecurities on the first Wednesday of each month, you are welcome to join by going Here.

  13. I started the day not feeling insecure, then had a (now former) client say my writing was "awful," so not such a good end to the day! She doesn't even speak English, so I'm trying to take it that she has no idea what good writing is in our language!

    1. I'm sorry! Usually that means the client simply doesn't want to pay for work already completed. I used to work as a copywriter and had the exact same problem. It's not your fault. There are always people who want to take advantage. Don't dare feel bad. Sending you plenty of virtual hugs.

    2. You get it! Yeah, this was a new client on Elance and I had red flags from the beginning. She's now asking for her money back and I'm saying no since I did her revisions and I suspect she's scamming...so hopefully she'll leave it at that.
