The new year begins (IWSG)

2014 has finally arrived and most of us are wondering what the year will hold in store for us. I know what it holds in store for me. Writing, hard work and more exercise (cringe). Of all the things we become insecure about this year, let’s not allow it to be our writing. Sure, our work can always show more improvement and sure, we are receiving rejection letters by the dozens. But each of us has a unique voice and style. Our writing is unique and diverse, so when we see a fellow blogger, or friend become published and not us, let’s not be harsh and chastise ourselves. Our day will come, maybe not tomorrow, but one day.
I hope that 2014 will be a great year for all of you. I wish you all lots of success, happiness and inspiration.

The Insecure Writers Support Group was created by the wonderfully talented Mr Alex J. Cavanaugh, so that writers could communicate to others the fears and insecurities that they might have. 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.

  2. I loved this part: "Our day will come, maybe not tomorrow, but one day."

    Very nice message to start the day with. Thank you! And I hope you have an amazing 2014! :)

  3. I totally agree. We will reap what we sow. Fo some its sooner, others it is later. Just have to stay with it and keep writing, networking, and promoting.

    Best wishes to you and yours for 204!
