It's the first Wednesday of the month time for another IWSG post where we writers help each other deal with our insecurities. A warm thank you to Ninja Captain, Alex J. Cavanaugh, and his team of Ninjas, Christine Rains, Heather M. Gardner, Dolorah at Book Lover, Julie Flanders, Murees Dupé, for providing writer's a safe and supportive format to speak openly, and without fear, about the insecurities that come with the craft of writing. Be sure to check out the IWSG Facebook page where writers can garner support more than once a month. You can learn more about IWSG, or join in the IWSG fun, here.
This month I'm struggling with balance. Balance is defined as:
an even distribution of weight enabling someone or something to remain upright and steady.
After a summer off from our normal routine, getting the balancing act of wife, mom, writer, teacher, chauffeur, chef, etc., etc., etc., is proving to be more challenging than I remember in past years. With all the things that are going on, I'm beginning to feel a bit like this guy:
Hopefully, if I keep moving I'll learn to balance it all, like in years past. However, I think I'm going to have to start moving a lot faster.
How about you? How are your writing (or life) insecurities? Are you having trouble keeping all your plates and bowls spinning?
