Insecure Writer's Support Group and The Guide to Publishing and Beyond

ALEX J CAVANAUGH


Awesome co-hosts for the December 3 posting of the IWSG are Heather Gardner, T. Drecker from Kidbits, Eva E. Solar at Lilicasplace, and Patsy Collins!


I can't believe it's December. 

I knew my break would end, but so fast? 

Didn't I just say hasta la vista yesterday? 

Didn't I just write my  Insecure Writers Support Group post for November? 

Didn't I just visit the land of ten thousand stupas and a million Buddhas? 

Then there was that holiday that flashed past at warp speed.
 Thanksgiving?
 Yes.
 That was it.

Stop the World. I Want to Get Off.

I should write a play by that title. 

Wait! 

Too late. 

Someone already did. 

Maybe it's the speed that's dredging up all of these insecurities. But I don't have time to wallow in my insecure puddle. I'm off to visit others who are sharing their thoughts on this affliction today. Join me and say hi to a lot of writers and read about their INSECURITIES.




AVAILABLE on AMAZON

Don't forget to get your copy of this collaboration by writers who share their writing experience.

  3. Ah, where did the time go? Sorry life seems like a blur, but great that it doesn't give you time to be insecure! Hope you catch up with life!

  4. My goodness, Lee! Time is flying by way too fast, I feel like I can't catch a breath. Ah well, on we go . . .
    And I agree, that is a good title! :)

    1. I'd write a longer reply, but I'm out of time. :-)

  5. I can SO relate to "where did the time go?" This whole year seems to have gone by in blur. I know I've accomplished SOMEthing, but I can't seem to remember what it was... :)

  6. I am with you, C. Lee! I feel like the whole year swirled by at lightspeed, with November hitting Warp 10 from Star Trek . . . and it doesn't look like anything is going to slow down soon . . . well, except when I decide to push "pause" by taking a day off. So, I'm ready already for Christmas day (and week . . . ).

    It's good to see you back and I hope you had an awesome trip!!!

  7. C.Lee, I believe everyone is with you on this. The world seems to be spinning out of control!!! Slow Down Already!!!

  8. You could write a play titled, Stop the world I wanna get on! I'd read it!

    ReplyDelete
  9. My goodness, Time is really flying past. This year has gone way too fast for me.

    ReplyDelete
  10. November did go by in the blink of an eye. Before we know it, it's going to be 2015!

  11. Take a deep breath and maybe walk outside in the fresh air a bit. Life will keep happening. There's no stopping it.

    ReplyDelete
  12. I keep looking for that switch, the one that stops the world, but I haven't had any luck either. :P

    IWSG #151 until Alex culls the list again.

  13. Earth does seem to be spending faster every day. Where are the brakes?

    ReplyDelete
  14. So glad you're back! Missed you...But I've been MIA, too. ;)

    ReplyDelete
  15. Life does seem to be whizzing by pretty fast. I wish it would slow down a little, so we can all catch up on the pile of things we need to do!

    ReplyDelete
  16. Time just goes by way too fast, doesn't it?

    ReplyDelete
  17. This year has gone by so fast. But it's been productive as I was able to write a book, so I can;t complain.

    ReplyDelete
  18. The older I get, the faster time moves.

    ReplyDelete
  19. Man, I sure missed the boat on this poetry thing... How do I never know what's going one? I should probably read the fine print more often, but your theme hits on exactly why... just TOO MUCH to do!!!

    ReplyDelete
  20. The whole year seemed to go by so fast not just the month:) When one travels it even goes by faster. I hope it was a beautiful experience for you

    ReplyDelete
  21. Time goes way too fast. If I think about it, I hyperventilate.

    ReplyDelete
  22. I know what you mean. Time goes by too fast, although I might take too fast over too slow.

    ReplyDelete
  23. I never write many checks out these days, but when I do, I always stumble when filling out the year. I'm stuck in 2010.

    ReplyDelete
  24. This year feels like it's just FLOWN by!

    ReplyDelete
  25. This whole freaking year has flown by. What gives? I feel like I didn't accomplish anything (even though I know I did.)

    ReplyDelete
  26. I can't believe it's December either! I'm excited for the holiday season though.

    ReplyDelete
  27. Time is flying! Can't believe we are already into December! Your post made me laugh. :)

  28. Seems so much to do and so little time since time had decided to spread wings and fly at super-sonic speeds! lol!

    ReplyDelete
  29. I fear the rest of the year will just accelerate....

    ReplyDelete
  30. Yeah, me, too. I didn't realize it was December already. :-)

    ReplyDelete
  31. November flew by at the speed of light, right? All while you were busy flying around the globe - or at least around the Buddhas and stupas. (I'm not sure it's pc to refer to the Myanmar's stupas. I'm sure it's not their fault and you shouldn't make fun of the intellectually inferior no matter where they live.)

    ReplyDelete
  32. Every month flies past so quickly. Next it'll be Christmas then we'll be jumping into 2015 and all the challenges that will bring. :)

    ReplyDelete
  33. It'll be 2015 in no time.

    Welcome back to blogging. I missed you.

    ReplyDelete
  34. The year has flown by, for sure, although it blew my mind when I thought back to last Thanksgiving and realized it seemed like it had been ten years ago! I think 2014 was a busy year for me, so it seems like multiple years in one.

    ReplyDelete
  35. That's what happens when you blink. Don't blink!!

    ReplyDelete
  36. I've been feeling time flying by too. I can't believe it's three weeks until Christmas. Where did 2014 go?

    ReplyDelete
  37. could you do me a favor and speed along the millions of dollars I think I'm due into my bank account for Christmas?? thanks babe!

    ReplyDelete
  38. I know exactly what you mean! Where on earth does all the time go? Glad to hear it is keeping the insecurities at bay though!

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