Welcome to Following the Whispers blog
Thank you so much for taking the time to visit. Hope you enjoy your stay. I blog here whenever I feel the need. 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. Now, my focus is sharing this journey we call life.
“Only one thing is more frightening than speaking your truth, and that is not speaking it.” Naomi Wolf
“We are called human beings, not human doings.” Wes Nisker, Buddhist teacher
“It is not the critic who counts; not the man who points out how the strong man stumbles, or where the doer of deeds could have done them better. The credit belongs to the man who is actually in the arena, whose face is marred by dust and sweat and blood; who strives valiantly; who errs…(And) if he fails, at least fails while daring greatly.” Theodore Roosevelt

Insecure Writers Support Group - August
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?
