We have reached the last IWSG posting for 2015. This year has really gone super fast. IWSG (Insecure Writers Support Group) is an online group of writers. We post on the first Wednesday of every month. IWSG gives us a chance to discuss our writing worries, fears, doubts and anxieties with other writers who have similar fears, issues and doubts.
IWSG was started by Ninja Captain Alex J Cavanaugh (author of the Amazon Bestsellers: CassaStar, CassaStorm and CassaFire and the upcoming Dragon of the Stars). To download a free copy of the IWSG’s book ‘Guide to Publishing and Beyond’ visit the IWSG website for details. To read the IWSG Posts click here.
As the year is hurtling down toward its end, I am feeling a strong sense of inadequacy, especially when I read a few of my blog buddy’s posts. I get a shock when I read how many manuscripts they are writing, revising, plotting and marketing. OMG. It’s enough to give me a serious inferiority complex. And when they share their reading lists, I drown in a feeling of inadequacy.
I feel that neither have I written a lot this year nor read enough books. 2015 has been a year where life (family health issues) interrupted my writing every few days. I just managed to revise several old books and write one MG book and a couple of Picture Books and start my YA novel. That’s all. I hope to write a lot this month, but I am sure it won’t be enough as there are just a few days left.
How do you all tackle feelings of inadequacy? Infact, I want to ask you do you all feel inadequate in the first place? Or is it just me?
