Insecure Writer's Support Group - Purpose: To share and encourage. Writers can express doubts and concerns without fear of appearing foolish or weak. Those who have been through the fire can offer assistance and guidance. It’s a safe haven for insecure writers of all kinds!


This is my first time participating in IWSG! Since I have lots of anxieties that revolve around writing, I figured I crawl out of my shell and share a few of them.

My current anxtiey: I am afraid my Sulan sequel will suck. I've had so much positive response to the first book in the series that I am afraid of disappointing my readers with the next installment. I completed the first draft of the second novel last November during Nano, but I am afraid to finish it and publish it.

There! I've said it! I am afraid.

I am dealing with the fear by writing another book, which I hope to have published in the next few months. Maybe by the time I get that one out into the world, I will find my courage and saddle up for the second Sulan book.
