IWSG

Well, it's the first Wednesday of the month. Which means it's time for ISWSG.



And I have to say... I got nothing. When I'm writing this, it's yesterday evening, and I'm just so worried and filled with anxiety over the election that the idea of being worried about being a writer is just Phoosh - right over my head. We have 2 very important amendments we're voting on in MN, besides the very important POTUS elecetion and now that I'm done with the day job for the day, it's even harder to concentrate on writer worries.

I guess I do have this. Yesterday (today for me) after I had voted and when I first started to feel that anxiety, I turned to the one thing I knew could fully distract me: my WIP.

I've reached the point where I absolutely love it, and where, from where I'm at until the end, pretty much only bad stuff happens, which means I'm constantly itching to get back to it because I CAN'T WAIT to get to the end.

So I guess that's something. Sometimes when the insecurity comes from other things in life and not writing, it's the writing that can make those things go away. Even if just for a little bit.

Internet Hugs for all!!

I can totally relate to that. When I'm anxious I turn to writing..and chocolate. Usually both.

That's all I did last night. I am sick and tired of politicians.

I just watched a movie last night and a stupid one at that! But all that political stuff kept you from worrying about your manuscript. Glad you really like it now.

Writing does help keep me in la la land. Great post.

So your writing has become an escape from insecurity... fantastic. I hope the amendments went your way, but either way, just keep on escaping. Keep on writing.

Oh, I love that part of the novel. I love when I get to the obsessive part, the part where I dream about it. Absolutely my favorite. I'm always shocked by how much I'll write when I get to the obsessed place.

Happy Writing! (or my new battle cry, To NaNo!)

I get very OCD about my novels. And isn't it nice to be so focused on something else that you don't have time to focus on your insecurities :)

You are so filled with bubbly confidence that you need to change your Avatar to a pink bunny.

Hope you made it through election day! I hear you - writing is a great way to escape real life. Thank goodness.

I've never been prouder to be a Minnesotan (who happens to be from Seattle, but whose from is from Saint Paul - sue me)!

I love the feeling of being so excited about my WIP that I just can't wait to get back to it. :)

Happy November!
