The Insecure Writer's Support Group (or IWSG) is a wonderful group put together by the amazing Alex J. Cavanaugh (which now has an equally cool Facebook group).
The first Wednesday of each month is the perfect opportunity to share my insecurities on the #IWSG therapy couch, get encouragement and support about such insecurities, and to read how other writers are faring.
First of all, I wanted to let everyone know that The Insecure Writer's Support Group Guide to Publishing and Beyond is available. Find out more here.
I plan on downloading a copy later today!
Now, it's time for my insecurity for December. Actually, it's more of a concern/fear.
The novella I just finished and the book I'm currently working on have some intensely emotional scenes. Unfortunately, I can't shake them. I feel like I'm walking around with a dark cloud, and I'm finding it hard to concentrate and get other things done.
What can I do to shake this heaviness? I need to get back to writing, editing, and life. I tried writing some lighter scenes, but the novella really doesn't have any, and that's the one I need to get back to (editing, etc).
