Insecure Writer’s Support Group: Post #10
It's March. You wouldn't know it from peering out my window. Looks like more like February. A thick layer of snow covers the frozen ground and a stiff, cold wind is rattling the window. Even the ghosts are hunkered down before their imaginary fires. But my computer's calendar says it's the first Wednesday in March and computers don't lie.
I've been doing some free promotions lately in the hope of increasing my newsletter subscriptions. Well, the number has increased just not the avalanche that I was hoping (praying?) for. I know, these things take time, so I'll try to be patient. I'm also several chapters into a contemporary horror novel. I have the major plot points outlined, so it should be all systems go. So why do I feel more like a hobbit picking my way through Mirkwood, hoping I don't get stuck somewhere when I venture a bit off the path? Nothing to do but continue running/walking/crawling ahead and enjoying the journey no matter how insecure you may feel at the moment.
Until next month, keep writing.
