From Alex J. Cavanaugh:
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 HERE 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 awesome co-hosts today are Heather Gardner, T. Drecker from Kidbits, Eva E. Solar at Lilicasplace, and Patsy Collins!

I read a post from a woman on Facebook yesterday who wrote she had a multi-book deal with a publisher, the first book was completed and published, and she was trying to work on the second, but she just couldn't.
She was stuck. Afraid. Feeling...insecure.
What if she couldn't write the second one as well as the first? What if it had all been a big mistake?
I have to say, the comments back to her were so reassuring that they even helped me.
We can't worry about any of that. There is no guarantees in this world, but if we don't do anything we will absolutely never know what could have happened.
Sure, knowing you have more books to write to fulfill your obligations can be daunting, but at the same time, your only job then is to write. You already know your next books have a home.
And sure, it's not easy to write 'The End', but it won't happen at all unless you push through those fears and get out that laptop, or that pad of paper, and start writing.
Keep moving forward.
Write for yourself. Write what you love.
