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.
