Insecure Writer's Support Group

Yep, it's IWSG time again! Am I insecure? Huh! I don't have time for that as I'm getting ready for a long trip in the van. We'll be out of internet range a lot of the time*, so I'm making lots of submissions and generally sorting my writing stuff before I go.  With a bit of luck not many of the rejects will reach me.

*I'm hoping that doesn't make me insecure and instead gives me the opportunity to relax and write.

I'm hoping that any insecurities you may have will soon be left behind and replaced with a wave of optimism.

  3. There is a lot to be said for being out of internet range. If my internet goes down, I panic. If I'm out of range I relax. Hope you have a great trip, Patsy and relax :-) x

    1. Thanks, Teresa.

      Yes, knowing we won't have any internet part of the time isn't a problem, but expecting to have it and not, or for it to be really slow is hugely stressful.

  4. Enjoy your trip and I hope your return will be full of story acceptances. When I go on holiday I never use the internet! It's so good to take a break from it.

    1. I'm going to use it some of the time, Lindsay - we want to find out how feasible it is to travel and work, but I don't plan to spend a lot of time online.

  9. Hope you have a lovely trip. The weather is looking good. I suspect even when you are relaxing, your brain is in working mode, so you will be raring to go again when you get home.
