Insecure Writer's Support Group

This is the first Wednesday of the month and time for the Insecure Writer's Support Group, hosted by Alex J. Cavanaugh. This is a blog hop and you can visit other members by clicking HERE.

Today I'm out of commission because of surgery, so I'm writing this before Wednesday and posting it so everyone can read it.

I've been feeling very insecure lately, because I've been working on two story ideas and hoping to develop one of them into a full novel. Unfortunately, I got stuck on both ideas, even though I outlined both ideas and started a chapter outline on one of them. I didn't want to end up going in two directions at once, but I like fantasy, however this is the weakest story. My first person story is stronger, but I don't have the confidence to invest the time to finish an entire novel. I'm not sure it will stand on its own.

I know this sounds wishy-washy and like I'm whining, but this is the time in a story's development that either shows that it will shine or it will flop. So far, neither shine out enough for me to continue, so wish me luck as I let them sit and work on something else in the meantime. What are you working on?


  1. I'm working on Nano, but took a break seeking out the latest IWSG posts. There are not many to check out this month.

    I'm wondering if we missed the memo hehehe

    Take care,
    Anna from Shout with Emaginette

  2. I hope you recover from your surgery speedily.

    Good luck with your writing. It's hard to work on two books at the same time, and if you're feeling more inspiration and pull for one vs. the other, it's best to just concentrate on that one. The other one can always call you back later.

  3. I could never work on two stories at once. I hope you are feeling better after your surgery.
