The Purpose of Insecure Writers Support Group: 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!
Goals, Resolutions, or maybe they should be calls ‘Iwana’s’ whatever you decide, I am very nervous about what to do about my 2013 writing goals. I have some things in my life I have no control over that will be happening, both good and not-so. But I want to set some goals, make a list of resolutions so that I can have a game plan!
So why is my mind blank? Is it that I’m scared? Or not motivated enough? It could be that I usually lose the list and then find it in October, only to freak out at having only three months to try to make them.
*Taking deep breath* all right, I’m sharing part of my personal list with y’all…hopefully soon I will have my writing goals down and can share them.
My Goals for 2013 – -
Slay the elephant. I have a couple of friends who I need to talk to and let them know something that is bothering me. Its between them and I and although I suspect they know the elephant is there, they choose to ignore it. I am going to point him out to them, hopefully in a loving way, because I do love them both.
Get Healthier. Some interesting new pains, aches, and other no-feel-goods have been making my days a bit of a trail for the last few months. I know the reason and I know how to fix it, but i don’t do it because it’s hard. I know I have some intolerances (to certain foods) and I have to make the needed changes. Boy I am not happy about this…but the reward will be worth it. (I hope)
Slow Down. Another huge one for me. I need to slow down, life it too short to keep so busy that I’m missing some important things. Now mind you that slowing down for me means going from the Fast-Fast-Forward to Fast-Forward to most of you. When I slow down too much I get sad, so it’s going to be interesting finding that happy medium. (Wish me luck)
Those are the things that I want to share with you, and please give me any advice you can on all three, I sure could use it.
BTW, I am in debt to Alex J Cavanaugh for this wonderful idea of a Writers Group where it’s okay to show our hand, share our insecurities!
