The first Wednesday of every month is officially Insecure Writer’s Support Group day.
The Purpose: To share and encourage. Writers can express doubts and concerns without fear of appearing foolish or weak. Those who have been through the fire can offer assistance and guidance. It’s a safe haven for insecure writers of all kinds!
IWSG Asks: How do major life events affect your writing? Has writing ever helped you through something?
And recently, after years of trying to help my husband cope with a mental disorder, our marriage has fallen apart. I won't go into the nasty details, but he simply walked out and left. Since I'm a stay-at-home mom, I can't begin to tell you what sort of situation that puts me and my 4 children in. Despite being in an extremely difficult financial situation that often leaves me sleepless at night, I have one thing I can certainly rely on.
Even if I don't ever publish another word, I will still write. After all of these years, I know that writing will never leave my life. This year, I focused more on my writing than I had in a long time, loosing myself in other worlds because I needed a respite from my own terrifying troubles. I finished more stories this year than I have in a long time. Three of those stories were recently published in these anthologies; Pirates: A Boys Behaving Badly Anthology, A Wink and a Smile and A Kiss and a Promise.
And, I hope that one day I can make a decent income with my writing that I can properly support my family. My children deserve better. And, I believe that I deserve to be happy. Right now, more than anything, I want to see my writing career dreams fulfilled. And I'm more determined than ever to see that happen.
