WIP Thursday: Trust Instinct Not Opinion

Like knowing something was up with a client and yet I could not put my finger on it just then.  I believe this.  Feeling that something is wrong in general should always be heeded, no matter the situation.  Feeling something is wrong means something is wrong and its time to go to work.
Now when folks start giving you "exacts" about you or others personal works (or personal issues), I have found it's usually just their own personal opinion.    We do not have crystal balls or read minds.  Only the writer (or client) really knows what their story is or wish it to be.

WIP Wednesday on a Thursday AGAIN!

Unless you are a writer and sitting your ass down is a paramount move towards completion.  Happy "ass sitting" when ya can, folks!

WIP Wednesday: Insecure Writer's Support Group in Session.

I have done a handful of things that have yielded great reward over the years.  Working in the Mental Health field, loving my husband, becoming a mother...  None of these things were or are always easy.  The best things never are.  And I did not pursue these things to be rewarded.  That came as a happy side effect.

But writing...

Once I get past the procrastination and excuses, the act of writing (and art) feels as easy to me as breathing.  Far easier than the other rewarding choices in my life.  So why do I not pursue the act of creating, the way I do my more difficult vocations?  Something so self rewarding and so easy for me, if I just cut the procrastinators bull shit and pick up my pen and lay fingers to keys...

Because, maybe writing is just for me?  And I have a hard time giving myself a chance at good things...

I see that.

Okay, well thanks Insecure Writer's Support Group for the therapy session.  We have found yet another case of "Own Worst Enemy".   Free cookies and coffee on your way out...
