It's the first Wednesday of the month and that means you better have your Christmas shopping almost done!
It means that it's Insecure Writer's Support Group day! Woohoo!
Man, I have missed this. There are days I just need that support group to listen to me whine. A lot.
This month's question is...
In your writing, what stresses you the most? What delights you?
Hmm... stress comes, for me, from not being able to get past a scene block. I got caught up on such a block during NaNoWriMo.
The thing is, the scene would direct where the story would go after that. Yes, I do try to be a Plotter, but end up being a Pantser more often than not. So, if I cannot plot my way through it, or pants my way through, I get stuck. And that stresses me and the voices come in and call me an imposter, that I'm not a true writer, things of that nature and it becomes stressful.
I don't listen to those voices, not anymore. It happens and I do try to write every single day. Sometimes, it just doesn't seem to go that way.
But what delights me?
Oooh my characters delight me. When I hit that roll and can't stop writing, that delights me. Seeing the story unfold in my mind, that delights me and gives me hope. The ideas I can come up with, that delights me as well. Honestly, I have more positives about writing than negatives and I could go on for hours. However, this is a blog hop day and you better believe there are more writers out there who need support! So go forth, my fearless follower and read on!
