Secure in busyness

It's time for another Insecure Writer's Support Group post. This is a monthly blog hop thing, which is just part of what the IWSG get up to. If you fancy joining, just click on the link and bung in your details.

I have a lot going on at the moment – and it's been that way for a while. I've just come back from a weekend Bookfest, where I was one of the panelists on a talk about self publishing, my article on copyright is in Writing Magazine, and a podcast interview about writing for women's magazines will be released soon.

I'm writing lots of short stories, working on a non-fiction book, entering competitions and preparing for the three day writer's workshop I'm presenting with a friend at the end of the month. The good thing about being really busy is that there's no time left for procrastination and insecurities, so I'm having to give those a miss for a while. No doubt I'll squeeze them into my busy schedule later in the year!



My non writing life is quite hectic too (in good ways). That's why there's no Wednesday word of the week – I've just not had time to do it. Maybe you'd like to share your favourite words instead?

I did manage to find another free to enter competition. If you fancy winning a writing retreat in Greece take a look at this.

It's good to be so busy with writing projects and workshops, Patsy - I always find it more productive in general!

That's just it - you keep that busy and productive, you don't have time to worry about anything!

Being so busy with all the writing related things is a very good sign. The Bookfest event you did sounds very interesting.

Congrats on your successes and your busyness. Take some time to relax every now and then, though. And enjoy it. :)

Keeping busy definitely leaves you little time for other things!

It's fantastic that you have so much going on! I don't think I'd be able to cope with even half that. Best of luck to you!!
