The Insecure Writer and A Lack of Progress

Today is March's contribution to Alex Cavanaugh's Insecure Writers Support Group.

What makes me an Insecure Writer this month?

I’m not exactly sure. Just a vague sense of unease that I’m not where I should be at this point in time. 

For one thing, my series of posts on building my brand have come to a screeching halt. It’s not as if I haven’t been working on building my platform, but there are so many facets to this marketing stuff, that breaking it down into blog-sized pieces may take a while. In the meantime, the edits on my urban fantasy are progressing at a reasonable rate, but it’s March and suddenly I’m worried I'm already falling behind. 

This month’s question is: Other than the obvious holiday traditions, have you ever included any personal or family traditions/customs in your stories? 

The short answer is no. Maybe it’s because I haven’t written that many stories yet, or perhaps it’s because my family and I don’t really have much in the way of traditions. I’ve borrowed habits and traits from family and friends to round out my characters, but that’s about it. 

I'll be returning home today from a very enjoyable trip to Florida, so my ability to visit everyone’s blog may be limited. See you next month.



  1. Glad you had a great trip to FL!

    I *just* saw your post from a month or so ago about writing blogs vs. reader-focused sites. Sorry that took a while! I left my thoughts on it there...basically that you can migrate your Blogger blog (and rename it, if you want) to a Wordpress site. But I know you're sort of burned out on branding right now...just take things one step at a time! You're doing just fine. :)

  2. As long as you've been editing, it's all good. Take a break from branding and enjoy your trip to Florida.

  3. Marketing. Ugh! I feel your pain there!

  4. It sounds like progress is happening so way to go!!!

  5. Glad you had fun! See you when we see you!

  6. Hope you've had fun in Florida! We've never been so far south
    I've decided any progress is good progress! As long as we're not going backwards, we're good :)

  7. Platform building and edits sounds like a good deal to me! Hope you had a fun trip and that you continue progressing. :)

  8. Your answer and mine are exactly the same. Enjoy away time.

  9. Branding doesn't happen all at once. It builds over time. :)

  10. There are always times when we writers feel like things aren't moving according to plan. That's because writing thrives in chaos. Embrace it!

  11. Sounds like you're making some progress, which is good. Hope you have a safe trip home.

  12. Pace yourself, so you don't burn out. One inch at a time, until all the blogs are posted and the words revised. You can do this.

  13. Don't panic. You can't do it all at once. So don't even try. Just do what you can.

  14. I get that feeling of falling behind. I thought I'd have much more done at this point in the year. But I always say, take it one day at a time.

  15. There is a lot of little facecets to building a brand for sure. Glad you had a wonderful trip.

  16. I’m much pleased with your good work. you have good knowledge for article writing and this article is amazing. I am waiting for your next article…. Thank you so much
