Insecure Writer's Support Group

My dad was in a bad accident Tuesday night and I thought I had scheduled the post to run. I've been running around. He fractured 3 neck vertebrae. He is beginning a long journey to recovery. I appreciate any prayers.

A month sure goes fast doesn't it? Our lives are rolling along.

If I had not subscribed to the email for Insecure Writer's Support Group the day would have passed. I would not have written anything.

I was reading a post about Crutch Words. I knew I used them but just didn't know there was a name for  them and just how much I used them. I need to work on this problem for sure.

I'm so irritated with myself. I want to blog. I want to write a book.

I've set goals that I don't meet. I don't know what interesting things to write about. I get writer's block constantly.

Honestly, I don't have any motivation whatsoever sometimes. I WANT to write but my brain is not cooperating.

The irony is I write in a journal nearly every day. Go figure.

I don't post what I write in my journal because it is private thoughts.

This cartoon says it all.

Until next time…

  1. I"m sure the concerns about your father make it hard to concentrate on much else. Even when I don't have serious things going on, writer's block is always with me. I think most people would agree. Here's wishing your father a good recovery with no complications.

  3. Prayers for your father!
    Since you write easily in a journal, maybe free writing would get your words flowing? I saw a post this week on breaking through writer's block by using an image. Think it was Carole Anne Carr's IWSG post. Maybe that would help?
