I'm not ready!

It's the first Wednesday of the month, so time for an Insecure Writer's Support Group post. But I'm not ready to feel insecure yet.

So many things could go right in the next twelve months – I might win a competition with a story I've not written yet (I'll be posting up links to lots of free ones over the next few weeks). Maybe I'll finish the novel I started a loooong time ago and it'll be a marvellous success. Perhaps I'll sell lots more of my short stories.

The year has got off to a good start with three more five star reviews of my writing book and I'm so full of enthusiasm for my writing projects the biggest difficulty is in knowing which to concentrate on first.

I hope you're feeling just as optimistic about the year ahead, but if you're not try to remember a year is a long time. Lots and lots of things will happen, so the chances of some of them being good are pretty high.

btw, Tonight's #writingchat topic is motivation. Do join us on twitter from 8-9 if you'd like to chat to myself and other writers. Don't forget the hashtag!
