Insecure Writer Me

Here's my October contribution to the Insecure Writers who are slogging through this amazing writing life with me. 

Bless you for being here. Be sure to visit others in this hop.  


And bless people like Erich Fromm who have words that help.


"The task we must set for ourselves is not to feel secure, but to be able to tolerate insecurity." 



Just wait until December if you want to see some INSECURITY on this blog! 
This is a Blog Hop!

  5. You shouldn't be insecure because you are an AMAZING writer. :D But I know it's easier said than done. *sigh*

  9. This was one of the best lessons of my life--learning that it is possible to tolerate being uncomfortable. That I don't have to try to fix it or smother it or pretend it isn't there. I can just be uncomfortable until it passes--as it will.

Please say something to me, anything. Well, not anything, but a kind word will do.
