Today’s awesome stop is Arlee Bird’s Tossing it Out!
Go see what insecurities my characters possess at Tossing it Out!
It’s time for another group posting of the Insecure Writer’s Support Group! Time to release our fears to the world – or offer encouragement to those who are feeling neurotic. If you’d like to join us, click on the tab above and sign up. We post the first Wednesday of every month. I encourage everyone to visit at least a dozen new blogs and leave a comment. Your words might be the encouragement someone needs.
My insecurity today – that my writing does not contain enough depth and meaning.
I’m not much for heavy descriptions or fine details.
There are no great life lessons in my work. Well, not any deep messages anyway.
My stories don’t stray into uncharted territory. I tend to stick to simple formulas.
I don’t write eloquently or with fancy prose. My work is more accessible than rich.
My books aren’t award winners. Never will be.
A hundred years from now (all right, ten years from now) few will remember my books. They will never be classics.
All I can hope is that people enjoy them now. That the characters and stories take readers on a fun adventure. That for a little while, they provide a little escape from reality.
Which ultimately is all I really set out to accomplish anyway.
Don’t forget that everyone who comments here on my blog over the next two weeks will be entered to win this cool prize package from my publisher. So be sure to comment every single day!
