This post is part of the Insecure Writer’s Support Group blog hop. The first Wednesday of every month is Insecure Writer’s Support Group day. Post your thoughts on your own blog. Talk about your doubts and the fears you have conquered. Discuss your struggles and triumphs. Offer a word of encouragement for others who are struggling. The awesome co-hosts for the May 2 posting of the IWSG are E.M.A. Timar, J. Q. Rose, C.Lee McKenzie, and Raimey Gallant!
Happy spring, if you’re in the northern hemisphere! Where I’m at, we bizarrely jumped from winter right into summer this past week, but I’m not complaining. It’s so nice to have the windows open and the heat off–and no snow on the ground!
At the moment, writing is hard and that’s my insecurity. My “day job” is quite taxing right now, as my boss was fired and I was forced to take over a leadership role in the interim until someone fills his position. Mostly, I’m qualified to do it but–it’s been really, really stressful and busy, which is why I never wanted to be the boss. I’m not complaining because they’re paying me, but writing–and blogging–is suffering in the meantime. I know this won’t last forever, but it’s frustrating. I’ll come back to what I love, I just have to get through this rough spot.
I know this happens to other writers too. If you’d like to share your stories about real life getting in the way of your writing, please do! It’ll be nice to commiserate.
May 2 question – It’s spring! Does this season inspire you to write more than others, or not?
I write no matter the season, but I think when the weather starts getting warmer it’s more distracting–I want to go outside! I want to be out in the good weather! I’ve tried writing out on my balcony, but honestly too much air and too much of a view is even MORE distracting. I prefer to just get the writing done and then go have some fun.
How about you? How is your spring going (or fall, if you’re on the southern part of the globe)?
