Insecure Writers' Support Group: Just Keep Swimming



In the midst of NaNoWriMo, typing like I've never typed before (see the keys smoking?), I have just two pieces of advice for insecure writers everywhere (including myself):



Just keep writing, just keep writing, just keep writing, just keep writing, just keep writing . . .


and

"And let us consider how we may spur one another on toward love and good deeds." Hebrews 10:24

In our house, we've modified the motto to 'just keep running'! It works for us!

Thanks for the encouragement! And congrats on your strong start with NaNoWriMo!

Closing Day 2 of NaNo with 4,700 words . . .

welcome to my world of poetry said...

I enjoyed reading your post. I get so frustrated, I have the grand total of 431 followers-yet only eight bothered to comment on yesterday's blog. If I choose to follow someone I always comment whenever they write.
Is it all worth it?

Hi! Found you via the blog hop. I'm not Nanoing but I still have to remind myself to just get the words down. They can be fixed later. Best of luck!!!

Tyrean Martinson said...

Yvonne- I think it is worth it, but when we follow lots of blogs and lots of bloggers follow us, it's a lot to keep up with . . . I know I have a tough time making time, so I expect others have the same time constraints too.

Charissa - Hi! Great to meet you! And thanks!
