I'm not feeling particularly insecure this month. Perhaps that's because I've been writing daily for several weeks now and I'm always happiest when I'm writing. My insecurity comes if I allow myself to think about whether what I am writing is any good or not, so as soon as I catch myself thinking that way, I immediately shift gears and think about something else. And if I even have one tiny thought about what I will do about publishing when I'm done, I could throw myself off a bridge, so I won't go there.
All I need to do right now is keep writing. The rest will happen when it happens.
How about you?

Welcome to Following the Whispers blog
Thank you so much for taking the time to visit. Hope you enjoy your stay. I blog here on Monday and Tuesday. This blog was created at the time my memoir came out, in February, 2009. Its motto was: creating a life of inner peace and self-acceptance from the depths of despair.
