Thanks to Alex J. Cavanaugh for this wonderful blog hop that helps to support writer's. The awesome co-hosts are M. Pax, Tracy Jo,Patricia Lynne, Rachna Chhabria, Feather Stone, and Randi Lee!
Purpose: To share and encourage. Writers can express doubts and concerns without fear of appearing foolish or weak. Those who have been through the fire can offer assistance and guidance. It’s a safe haven for insecure writers of all kinds!
Posting: The first Wednesday of every month is officially Insecure Writer’s Support Group day. Post your thoughts on your own blog. Talk about your doubts and the fears you have conquered. Discuss your struggles and triumphs. Offer a word of encouragement for others who are struggling. Visit others in the group and connect with your fellow writer - aim for a dozen new people each time.
After four books why do I feel like an inadequate writer?
Last weekend was the first time(YES, the first time) I read one of my books AFTER it was published because readers were finding an inordinate amount of typos. And guess what, they were right. Even after having three edits, how did these get by? Needless to say, my publisher has fixed them.
While I was reading, I thought, the story is good. But there were parts that I cringed a little and wanted to fix a sentence or two or three. It's NEVER perfect...
How are you coping this month? Do you somewhat cringe when reading your stories? Do you read your books after they're published?
