Out There on a Tight Rope
Some local writer friends were trying to convince me recently that blogs are a waste of time. They quoted some studies or whatnot. All, well and fine, and I understand their need to feel they're not missing out by not blogging. They are missing out though. This is a fabulous opportunity to network, help other writers who send out an SOS, make friends and learn. Where else is there an Insecure Writers group? Only here in bloggyland.
I confess to some feelings of anxiety and insecurity, despite my bluster above. My dream is to write stories and publish them. I want to keep doing it, and I hope I will. I hope some people will like what I do as much as I enjoy creating my works. So many, many hopes. Like submitting, it's hope mixed with trying not to expect too much. So, I chew on my lip and hold my breath. I took that leap and there's no going back. I must keep moving forward. Must. Anyone want to clutch hands?
What has your stomach in knots?
Major thanks to Alex J. Cavanaugh for starting this group.
