Insecure Writer's Support Group post of the year so I decided to look back on my insecurities over the last twelve months.
Being made redundant was a cause for both optimism and concern. At last I had the chance to write almost full time - but would I be any more succesful than I had previously?
When I got acceptances, or the writing was going well, I felt quite confident. When I'd had nothing but rejects for months I was insecure.
I'm starting to feel that, on average, I might not be any more insecure than most other writers. What do you think - are we all a mixture of gloom and cheer?
(If you came looking for free to enter writing competitions you'll find several on the last two posts and there are more to come on Friday and Sunday)
