I debated if I should even post a blog entry today. Over the last two months, I haven’t been able to get online and visit other blogs, and it’s terribly unfair to post something and have someone comment on mine without returning the visit. The fact of the matter is that between work and my kids, I just can’t do anything else. I started to visit blogs at 6:50 AM this morning, leaving myself 40 minutes before having to start work. I literally only visited one blog before my son walked in and all my blogging goals for the day went out the window. *sigh*
But it’s Insecure Writer’s Support Group Day, and I didn’t want to skip out. Am I an insecure writer this month? Yeah. I’m struggling with my rewrites, both in making it flow right and finding the time to actually get words down. I got less than 1K this past month, and I’m going to have to rewrite all of it. But every writer knows that struggle.
Instead of focusing on my insecurities, I want to shout out to everyone out there. 2020 hasn’t been a kind year, and for those of you who have had it harder than the rest of us, my thoughts are with you. It’s been a truly crappy year for many, and my lack of personal space and time is nothing compared to the greater struggles many of you face.
So tell me your victories, if you have any. Big or small. Maybe you finished a paragraph. Maybe you beat cancer (looking forward to that for my mom – only a few chemo treatments left). Help me fill my gratitude cup at the end of this day, and I hope there’s something I can help celebrate with you.
