Holy moly, I totally forgot it was IWSG day!
Which obviously means I don’t have much to say. Please take a minute to visit a few of the more prepared and responsible bloggers on the IWSG page.
Insecure? I am, but I’m working on it.
Mainly right now I am insecure about my NaNoWriMo project. It’s going well, but I’ve reached the point where I need to pull the plot together, and that is always tough for me. Sex scenes I can write easily. Backstory and character development is no sweat. But tying up plot? Making actions meaningful and relevant to the story? Trickier. So I am about 11k into the project, all characters have been established, the bones of the thing laid out, and now “the plot thickens” as they say. I’ll do my best.
Another insecurity I have (which I am working on) is being proud of my genre. Romance writers in general get scoffed at pretty frequently, and m/m Romance is downright laughable to many. But I really enjoy meeting people, and I am proud of my stories. I want to go to the NaNo write ins and admit what I write, and not have to pretend confidence. Someday, maybe. I also want to join a local author’s group, but I’m nervous they won’t have me. So I’m working up my nerve to try that. I will update with a blog post if I do it!
Happy IWSG day, everyone 🙂
