It's the first Wednesday of the month which means it's time, once again, for Alex J. Cavanaugh's Insecure Writer's Support Group—the day insecure writers everywhere blog about their insecurities and offer support and assistance to others. (Click on the pic for a complete list of participants)
So, here's the thing...I'm not feeling particularly insecure at the moment. This is not to say that I'm bursting with confidence or anything because that would never happen (seriously, though, there's some major mental block where me and the word 'confidence' is concerned because it took me three tries to spell it correctly), but I'm not (at the moment) insecure.
I am abiding. The Dude abides.
Yeah, I still have things with which I am struggling (hello, blurb!), but I am not (at the moment) worried about them. Was I worried about them on Monday? I think I was. I was, at the very least, pissed off about them. Not sure what happened between now and then, but, whatever it was, I salute it because abiding is a much better state of mind.
And I thought I should take advantage of my lack of freaking out to thank all of you. You're very kind. You're a lovely community and you keep coming back to this blog to wade through the sarcasm and bad attitude to read whatever happens to come out of my brain that day. And then you offer me kind words, support and encouragement. You make me smile; you make me laugh. I appreciate it.
And I just wanted you to know.
Happy writing, all.
