IWSG Post - A season for overcoming.

There's a saying every thing there is a season.

I agree.

Even about writing.

There's a time to write, a time to edit and a time to send our little gems out into the world to be read or in my case, judged.

Am I insecure about it? Hell yeah!

But, I've had the constant unwavering support of my family and my second guys.

How could I possibly not give it a shot?

So, being insecure is normal.

Overcoming that insecurity to embrace a new opportunity...there's a season for that.

How are you feeling today?

Thank you to Alex J. Cavanaugh for creating this group for us to all come together.


  1. I am feeling the same way!! I am in final final edits right now--again, haha. But, then I'm shipping ATFM out into the big, bright world. Glad you're feeling upbeat about yours!! :)

  2. I'm also feeling the same way. I'm on the precipice of getting this manuscript out into the world and it's terrifying. Absolutely terrifying. But I haven't been actively dragging my feet to delay things either so I think that's a good sign.

    Best of luck to you. It'll be great!

  3. You have such a great attitude. Thanks for sharing that and good luck.

  4. I'm crawling through first edits on one and writing two others. And of course trying to find the time to promote my others.

    You will do great. I know it.

  5. My little gem is ready to fly the nest into the slush pile so I'm feeling extremely insecure at the moment.

  6. A new opportunity! Great attitude, Heather.

  7. I don't know where I would be without the support of my fellow authors/bloggers and the like. I certainly would not have gotten as far as I have!

  8. Ready to tackle the task of another book. Bring it on.

  9. Support is definitely important! We're plagued by such doubt as writers and sometimes we just need someone to tell us that we can do it.
