It's time for Insecure Writer's Support Group hosted by the Ninja Captain Alex J. Cavanaugh! We "meet" the first Wednesday of every month and discuss our writing insecurities.
I get distracted easily and never get all my writing done. Blogging is my biggest writing distraction. I could spend days reading and commenting on blogs. I read and comment on several writing blogs every day instead of writing.
I love this supportive and encouraging online writing community. You’ve become part of my life and writing journey. You’ve become more than blogging buddies to me ever since I’ve been able to communicate with some of you via email. You’ve opened the doors of friendship to me and I’m glad you did. You amaze me.
But, I’ve crept onto other social media that isn’t Facebook and Twitter. I convinced myself to be on Google+ and Goodreads because my fellow blogging buddies are on them. I’ve met my buddies on Google+ and Goodreads too.
Along with these writing distractions, I haven’t had the inspiration to write. I haven’t felt like writing, too. I’ve been going through a writer’s block lately because of my busy life and social media. I will overcome this writer’s block. I really want to write but the words don’t come to me when I would like them to.
The writing journey is challenging that comes with many obligations. I have to cope with these difficulties and have the uttermost faith in myself along the way.
Thank you Alex for hosting this group every month! Thank you C.M. Brown and L.G. Keltner for co-hosting this month!
Does social media distract you? Have you experienced the writer’s block before? How did you cope with it?
