Insecure Writers Support Group and The Muffin Commando Squad Meets the Kargrandes

Thanks ALEX CAVANAUGH 
The LINKY's at the bottom ( if Blogger hasn't done another fail on me). Visit some others and boost their SECURITY.

Nobody escapes the thought that they may not MAKE it. They may not SUCCEED. They may not be the BEST or win an AWARD. Even the most successful among us have considered this emotion, this very real part of our human condition. Here are some of the quotes I dug up to share with you on this February IWSG Wednesday.


  • "There is no such thing as perfect security, only varying levels of insecurity." Salman Rushdie
  • "It's insecurity that is always chasing you and standing in the way of your dreams." Vin Diesel
        And then there was Diane
  • "Insecurity is a waste of time." Diane von Furstenberg

  4. Those darn insecurities. They like to hide under the bed with the monsters, threatening to come out and get us when we least except it.

  5. Mini muffins! LOL Great group. :)

    I just have to keep telling myself, "You doubt because you care, and that can only lead to great things."

    IWSG #143 until Alex culls the list again.

  9. Cute muffin! You know, if it had cheese in it, I would totally be there. As it is, I'm not making too many commitments. I could be out of commission at the drop of a hat.

  13. I want a muffin! Send one over! As long as we learn to love the journey, we can't fail. Right? That's how I see it... but I have sick head and I'm not thinking straight.

  16. It's a good reminder that even big names have some insecurity. As for the muffin commando squad, I will have to check it out.

  17. Awesome team!! I'm excited to be a part of it. I should have put the Muffin logo up on my blog - I knew there was something missing.
    Thanks for sharing those quotes - it's good to know that we aren't alone in our insecurities.

    ReplyDelete
  18. Ha, I love those quotes! I need to stick them to my computer so i can be reminded every day.

  19. Not everyone can be the best and win the award. Doesn't mean we don't all have something to contribute to this world---and beating those insecurities is the only way to do it. Thanks for the quotage!

  23. You're teaming up for the challenge? Are you splitting up the alphabet? Could it be so easy? Smiles.

    Your mascot is darn cute, and your team is a force to be reckoned with.

  24. Great group of minions...er...muffins!

    ReplyDelete
  25. I'm impressed with your Muffin Commando Squad! I'm sure they're packing plenty of fiber to fuel their tanks with enough comments to last through the alphabet and beyond! You must have lured them in by promising Sundays off, Lee! Ha, ha, ha!!!

    great quotes!

    ReplyDelete
  27. No, we can't all be the award winning authors, but it would still be sweet to achieve. Just once. Of course, then we'd say, Just Twice! Great quotes.

    ReplyDelete
  28. Great quotes. I like Diane Von Furstenburg's. The Muffin Commando Squad sounds like a team not to be messed with. Enjoy!

    ReplyDelete
  29. Love the quotes and they are so true...if only we could get those insecurity ants off our brains:) The muffin squad sounds hilarious to me

    ReplyDelete
  30. I love all those quotes about insecurity. And that sure is a cute, gun-slinging muffin. ;)

    ReplyDelete
  31. I have to agree that Diane said it best.

    I like a muffin, unfortunately I live on a grain free diet. Still on the fence about A to Z

    ReplyDelete
  32. Good insecurity quotes. The way I see it, if you aren't a bit insecure then you can become overconfident and that can blind you and ultimately knock you down to a level of greater insecurity.

  33. Great quotes on insecurity. I have a little box I put all mine in when I have work to do. Some days, I don't even let them out for a breath of air. :-)

  34. Muffins rock! Love the quotes on insecurity!

    ReplyDelete
  35. I think the problem is, it's never enough. No matter how much you achieve in your career, you still feel as though you haven't made it yet. I'm not sure any writer feels like they've made it...because there's always someone doing more--always some goal you haven't achieved yet.

    ReplyDelete
  36. Yay for your Muffin Commando Squad!! Armed and ready for action!

    Here's one to ponder:
    The reason we struggle with insecurity is because we compare our 'behind-the-scenes' with everyone else's 'highlight reel'!

    ReplyDelete
  37. The Muffin Commandos. lol You guys are going to ROCK the A-Z!! I'm not very insecure anymore. I've accepted I'm not going to "make it," but I'm proud of myself for making such a big effort. And it's really true that if you do what you love, it doesn't matter if you're successful or not. You just enjoy doing it. :)

    ReplyDelete
  38. Great quotes! If only the third one was easier to remember whenever insecurity acts up, haha.

    Also, a Muffin Commando Squad? How fun! Looks like you're in good company... :)

  39. Thanks for dropping by my blog on Blitz Day!

  40. Woohoo! Can't wait to get to work. :D

    ReplyDelete
  41. A Muffin Commando squad? They won't steal my muffins, will they?

    Insecurity is a waste of time. Loved that quote. So is guilt. Yet, they affect us all.

  42. PERFECT: "Insecurity is a waste of time." Diane von Furstenberg
