Insecure Writer's Support Group: My First Post
So displaying writing insecurities once a month sounds perfect to me. If you'd like to join, just grab the button and sign up here. Share whatever you're feeling insecure about, struggling with, or questioning in your writing. And other writers and friends will show up and strengthen your resolve to keep plugging. The Insecure Writer's Support Group 'meets' the first Wednesday of each month.
This month my insecurity lies in a BIG and overwhelming concept.
I have a middle grade manuscript that I love. It's not my first manuscript. In fact, it's my third. And I love, love, LOVE this story. The way I feel about it is much different than I did my first two stories. So much so that I wish the English language, like Greek, had variations of the word love so I could properly communicate what form of love I have for this story. Because it would fall somewhere close to agape.
But what if no one ever loves this story the way I do?
That's a daunting thought. And one I'm struggling with right now.
