It's time for another Insecure Writer's Support Group post. This month I'm insecure about this (or this if you're outside the UK). It took me ten years from start to finish so maybe it's not that surprising that I hesitated a moment or two before finally pressing the 'publish' button, but having found the nerve to do that, I probably should do more than whisper the fact. I'm not at all sure why I'm finding harder to promote this one than I did with the previous novel.
On the plus side, I no longer feeling nervous about having a go in a few competitions (something which slightly scared me to begin with). I might have a go at this poetry one. If I can get something together in time I'm definitely trying this short story competition. I've already sent something to this one, but as we're allowed up to three entries I'm going to send in a couple more. Maybe I'll even manage something for this one.
Are you ever nervous about things you feel shouldn't really bother you? Or maybe you're now more confident about something that used to bother you.
