The Insecure Writer and Being Late With My Post

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

Why am I an Insecure Writer this month?

Because I completely forgot that today was the first Wednesday of the month.  Where are my priorities? 

To spare myself any further embarrassment, I'll jump right to this month's optional question. 

It’s spring! Does this season inspire you to write more than others, or not?

It seems that every time the season changes, I'm inspired to write. The onset of fall is still my most productive time, but I get another little boost when winter starts. It's time to head indoors and the thought of working on my story with a cup of hot chocolate next to me is enough to keep me writing for a while. Spring is another great time to write, but as you can see from the title of this post, it can also lead to short attention spans.

 Thanks for stopping by.



  1. Don't feel bad. I posted today but am just finishing up reading other people's posts because I've been crazy busy today. Glad you get inspired by the seasons. Winter is slower for me too because there is no yard work so I have a bit more time to devote to my own writing.

  2. Winter begins, no more lawn to mow, and no reason to go outside!
    No worries. Your spot on the list is still secure.

  3. LOL! May did sneak up on us.

    Spring means a lot of book releases so not much time for me to write.

  4. I'm in the short attention span place. :) But when the muse is flowing doesn't matter the season! Buy Yay! Spring is here!

  5. I completely understand. Spring can be very distracting, and April seemed to disappear in a blink. I am just glad you got your post up, Ken. Enjoy the beginning of the season and the rest of the month.

  6. LOL; I get the mix of burst of energy then short attention span also. Love the changes in weather, but have a different way of enjoying each.

    Have a good month Ken.

  7. Seasons don't really affect my writing except in my imagination. I like the meaning of spring and imagination likes to connect such things in stories. Happy IWSG

  8. Spring and summer are always my better seasons for productivity, to the point where I daydream about chasing those seasons around the globe (and sometimes actually do it.) See you next month, Ken!

  9. I find the really beautiful, inspiring months like spring make it harder for me to stay indoors. In autumn and winter are my favourite writing times. Spring invites me outside!

  10. I prefer fall as well, but spring is nice too. Really I just like having the windows open while I write, rather than keeping them shut for either the heat or the air conditioning.

  11. Changes in season also lightens my heart. Writing is writing no matter the season though. hehehe
