Insecure into the second half of the year…

By | July 3, 2013



Hello and welcome to The Book Bunnies, fellow Insecure Writers! I’m Tessa and I’ll be whining at you today (I’ve already done so on my own blog, Tessa’s Blurb, just so you know).

The Insecure Writer’s Support Group was brought to life by the wonderful Sci-Fi author and Ninja Captain Extraordinaire Alex J Cavanaugh. You can find the complete list of participants on his blog HERE. This month he is joined by three co-captains, namely Nancy Thompson, Mark Koopmans and Heather Gardner.

On my own blog, I’ve come to the conclusion that no matter what, I am a writer. I know this, deep down, and I have so many stories inside me sometimes I feel like they’ll just burst out of me. That doesn’t stop me from failing, again and again, at every single writing goal I set myself. It’s almost as if I’m scared, somehow, not to fail at this. I’m determined to keep trying, though. I’ve even signed up for Camp NaNo, though it’s already the 3rd of July (happy 4th of July in advance, btw, my American friends!) and I haven’t written anything yet.

How about you? How do you cope with writing goals? Do you keep to every single one of them, just a few, or like me fail at any (except NaNoWriMo, when I signed up I’ve always managed that one)?

Let me know!

I’m pretty good with daily goals, 700-1000 words a day, but I’m not very good at planning how long an entire book will take.

I discovered during Camp NaNoWriMo that I work better against a deadline. Proved it a second time with NaNoWriMo. Managed to get two books two books out of those.

Now I sit struggling with my second mystery novel, guess I need to put a deadline on myself and stick to it!
