When We Mirror Our Characters: An Insecure Post
Welcome friends to first Wednesday and the Insecure Writer's Support Group!
So I failed my WriMo in June. There's that... but on a more positive note, I started a serious edit of Also Appearing... where Leah Clarence feels like an extra in her own life. She has friends and family but always feels like she is in the background—like life is happening around her.
That is me.
I had a hole and my life went on around me. And then I got to writing and fell in love and dived in and was intoxicated with the magic of it. And at the moment I feel like I've been doing drugs and sleeping with strangers to try to get back something I must never have understood in the first place... Well not literally... But the Everly Brothers keep singing You've Lost that Loving Feeling...
So I am hoping this editing process, where Leah finally learns to live life on her terms, will help me with the process of getting my writing life back on my terms.
That's my story and I'm sticking with it.
If you are feeling kind, you should go check out the OTHER writers in the Insecure Writer Support Group.
And I totally forgot I was sharing VR Barkowski's arc winner today! Lee Jackson from Tossing it Out--VR will be in touch!
