Welcome to the December post for the Insecure Writer's Support Group, and thank you for stopping by even if I did miss last month's post and have not, in fact, posted since mid-October. I'm plenty insecure about that, let me tell you.
I mean, I used to be so good at the whole blogging thing... commenting on other people's blogs (sorry guys, I've been really, really bad at that), posting about my writing, telling stories for blogfests... I did it all, but I don't any more, because I do not seem to be able to find the time. I don't know why not, since my workload hasn't increased all that much. Has my Mr Muse left me? Am I tired of the online life, so to speak? Maybe a little, for both. Mr Muse is definitely a little put out by my lack of attention (he's sensitive that way).
I did dedicate part of November to him, though - I participated in NaNo and managed to get my 50.000 words down on paper, so that's definitely something. It's mostly rubbish - I admit I did include character interviews and long descriptions of settings that recur in the story, along with some background stuff that wouldn't actually show up if I ever (ever) get to the publishing point. But still, 50.000 words are 50.000 words, right?
How about you? What are you feeling particularly insecure about? Do you fear losing touch with the whole online community sometimes, no matter how much fun it is and how helpful? Did you take part in NaNo? How did it go? Or did you do something completely different?
