IWSG: Focusing on the Good

I can’t believe it’s October! And if I can’t keep up with the months, well forget about me keeping up with what day of the week it is. I only remembered IWSG because I saw someone else’s post on Google.

I’m buried in edits, recruiting for my release day blitz, writing blog tour posts and recruiting for a November blog tour (all while also working a day job). So, what am I not insecure about right now?

I’ll just be happy to make it through the week, send off my MS again and figure out what I need to do next.

Let’s focus on the good things:

    • I have some great writing friends who are always around when I need a sounding board or help in any way. I have to say the writers I’ve connected with are some of the best people in the world.
    • My ferrets still love me, even though Cam and I got into a battle the other day and he nipped my hand pretty good.
    • My hubby is helping in every way he can.
    • So far, beta readers have loved the story, and their comments have been encouraging–even though they’ve also inspired some *facepalm* moments.

So, what are the best things in your writing life right now?

IWSG: What? It’s Wednesday?

This is my first time participating in the Insecure Writer’s Support Group and I nearly forgot what day it was. I’ll blame the short week created by holiday Monday and get on with it.

My insecurity is getting this rewrite done and off to the editor while managing not to get a divorce. My husband is unbelievably supportive most of the time, but recently the stress has been getting to us both and we’ve been blowing up at each other for no apparent reason.

And that only serves to stress me out more.

Anyone else have this problem? Advice for getting my debut book out without going insane?
