IWSG and Weekly News

InsecureWritersSupportGroup2

It’s Wednesday! And it’s not just any Wednesday, but it is the first Wednesday of the month. You know what that means, right? Time to twist and twitter about with other inconsolable insecure writers. We twist. We shout. Man, it’s like a rock-n-roll song or something. *Grin* Come watch.

Our fantastic co-hosts today are: JH Moncrieff, Madeline Mora-Summonte, Jen Chandler, Megan Morgan, and Heather Gardner! Thanks to all of you rock stars! 🙂

Time for the monthly question: Did you ever say “I quit”? If so, what happened to make you come back to writing?

Not in those words, but would wanting to chuck my entire manuscript along with the computer where it was stored count to any of you? Yeah, I’ve felt that way more than a few times. But the truth is, I never try and stop that sensation. I give in to it for a couple of hours. I may even use chocolate or junk food to indulge the two-year-old inside me that feels that way. But I never let it carry over into another day. What brings me back each and every time is the crazy idea that writing is the most me thing that I do each day, and if I can’t do it, it would felt like I’d lost an appendage. So, you know, I sit my butt back down in chair the next day. And each and every time–so far–it gets better.

A little deep today, huh? Let me fix that with some news. *Grin*

This first news story just goes to show you that when Dutch wants an egg, he can best “The Drop of Doom.”

Science wraps it up with badass women throughout history. Science Fiction does not hold the only “wonder women.”

That’s it for me today. See you back here in seven.

About kimlajevardi

I am a forty-something-year-old writer. I'm currently drafting my second book. I've also written short stories, poems, and some non-fiction over the last several years. My interest in writing formed during countless hours with my nose tucked in books. I may have even been clutching a novel as I was born. :)

    It usually does get better. Funny, I’ve never wanted to chuck anything I was working on. I still have all my first drafts. (I hand write first, so I have a lot of notebooks.)

    “The most me thing I do each day,” Nailed it! 😉

  3. Chocolate really does help stop the quitting feeling, doesn’t it? It’s a magic food!

  4. Lee says:

    Ok – so I use wine. But, yes, I always come back, no matter how tempted to chuck it. To wit: “That’s it, I’m never writing again!” Hubs: “Really? Again? [eye roll]

  5. I think that egg got chomped.
    No matter how bad it gets, sleep on it and you always feel better in the morning.
