The Insecure Writer’s Support Group ~ No#7

Well, I don't have much to say today. But I do not want to incur the wrath of a certain Ninja Captain… so here's my short contribution. But before I forget – to my fellow bloggers – hope you had/have an awesome 04th July…

I'm still insecure… yep that's me…

Nothing has changed much in that respect

Sterling show of support in the blogisphere spurs me on… keeps me going

Empowering myself is the name of the game

Challenges/prompts keep me on my writerly toes

Uphill process – but the unity is unbelievable

Reaching out to fellow bloggers/writers… rest assured I'll get there!

Eventually

Head over to the IWSG to check out some rants and raves from a group of fabulous writers!

    The support keeps me going, that's for sure!!

    • michelle on July 5, 2012 at 12:58 pm

      Yep, without moral support, I don't think I'd have improved as much as I have…

    Keep working on it, you will get there one day. You have the ability, just need to plod on. 🙂

    • michelle on July 5, 2012 at 12:59 pm

      I can do the plodding along thinggie, so that's a portion of the battle won… 🙂

    You are doing a great job and your insecurity definitely does not show. 

    • michelle on July 5, 2012 at 1:00 pm

      Murees, that is a sweet comment, thank you so much! I really appreciate it… 🙂

      Thank you, Elise! You have encouraged and helped me along on this journey…  🙂

    That was a bouncy diddy.

    • michelle on July 5, 2012 at 1:06 pm

      I tried to keep it as light as possible, so as not to come across as too negative.

  6. mary aalgaard on July 5, 2012 at 12:50 pm

    Great way to sum it up.
     

    • michelle on July 5, 2012 at 1:07 pm

      As it stands, it outlines my writing journey at present. Thanks Mary!

  7. Teresa on July 5, 2012 at 2:22 pm

    I really like that. I'm insecure too and there is a great support system in the blog world.
     

    • michelle on July 5, 2012 at 6:22 pm

      Thanks Teresa! Yes, I don't know where I would have been if it weren't for the support structure!

  8. Donna B. McNicol [@dbmcnicol] on July 5, 2012 at 5:43 pm

    I am continually amazed at the friendships and support that I've been able to develop over the last 6 months. April A-Z and IWSG have been a major part of that.

  9. michelle on July 5, 2012 at 7:58 pm

    Definitely! The IWSG and April A-Z Challenge, are two wonderful platforms for bloggers/writers to meet and connect with like-minded people!

  10. Julie on July 5, 2012 at 10:06 pm

    This was very clever Michelle! I hope you are more secure than you let on, because you are an amazing writer with so much to offer. I love reading your imaginative posts!

    • michelle on July 6, 2012 at 9:57 am

      Thanks for the boost of inspiration, Julie! I appreciate it!

  11. tara tyler on July 6, 2012 at 12:16 am

    yay, michelle!
    love it!

    • michelle on July 6, 2012 at 9:59 am

      Tara, you are like a burst of sunshine. I always look forward to your positivity… 🙂

  12. Sherry Ellis on July 6, 2012 at 3:04 am

    The wrath of the Ninja Captain!  LOL!  I'm sure Alex got a laugh when he read that.  I'm an insecure writer, too.  I just haven't made it official by joining the group. 

  13. michelle on July 6, 2012 at 10:00 am

    I didn't want to upset "the powers that be" *chuckles* You must join us one of these days…

  14. Leslie Rose on July 7, 2012 at 5:25 pm

    Fun acrostic and so true. My knees would have buckled big time without all the writerly love from my crit partners, betas, and of course Bloglandia.

    • michelle on July 10, 2012 at 9:31 pm

      Thanks Leslie! The support in Bloglandia is truly unbelievable! 🙂

  15. Medeia Sharif on July 8, 2012 at 12:37 am

    I love the acrostic and agree with every line.

    • michelle on July 10, 2012 at 9:35 pm

      Thank you Medeia! The acrostic is a line-by-line account of my experience/emotions at present…

  16. Lexa Cain on July 8, 2012 at 7:10 am

    What a clever and sweet post — and just the way I like them — tight and entertaining. Awesome.  🙂

    • michelle on July 10, 2012 at 9:36 pm

      Thanks for the sweet comment! 🙂

  17. Cheryl on July 8, 2012 at 1:45 pm

    I agree with everyone–acrostics rock–especially when they are heartfelt and personal!
     
    Bless you and keep writing. (You're like the Little Train that Could!) 😉

    • michelle on July 10, 2012 at 9:37 pm

      *chuckles* I love the imagery of The Little Train that Could! 🙂 I'm off to re-acquaint myself with the tale…

  18. Lynda R Young on July 9, 2012 at 6:14 am

    Ha, I love this 🙂

    • michelle on July 10, 2012 at 9:38 pm

      Thanks for the visit and comment, Lynda! 🙂

  19. Tracy Brown on July 9, 2012 at 4:06 pm

    Now that was great! And yes, you will get there, Michelle. Keep it up! 🙂

    • michelle on July 10, 2012 at 9:39 pm

      Tracy, you're back! 🙂 Hope you had a wonderful "fishing expedition"! Thanks for popping in.

  20. Jocelyn Rish on July 13, 2012 at 9:57 pm

    What a wonderful acrostic for summing up how it feels to be a writer.

    • michelle on July 16, 2012 at 4:33 pm

      I have to admit that I have a thing for acrostics! 🙂

  21. Margo Kelly on July 16, 2012 at 2:22 pm

    Nicely done! IWSG is awesome.

    • michelle on July 16, 2012 at 4:35 pm

      Yep! IWSG is super-duper-ultra-uber a-w-e-s-o-m-e! 🙂
