I can't. - The Insecure Writer's Support Group.

I can't. 

I can't finish the book.
I can't get published.
I can't be an author.
I can't make a living this way.
I can't let my family down.

I can't.

Sound familiar?

Can't can be a bad thing.

But, not all the time.

Don't these sound better.

You can't make an omelette without breaking a few eggs.

You can't keep a good woman down.

You can't judge a book by its cover.

You can't blame a girl for trying.

I can't get you out of my mind.

Can't can be a good thing.

Spoken like a true Rolling Stone: You can't always get what you want. But, if you try sometimes, well you just might find, you'll get what you need.

I can't ... think of a place I would rather be.

Thank you, Alex J. Cavanaugh, for inspiring us to speak with one another once a month through The Insecure Writer's Support Group.
