It's that time again for sharing with the Insecure Writer's Support Group.
What is that you may ask, well their mission statement is this:
The Insecure Writer’s Support Group is a home for writers in all stages; from unpublished to bestsellers. Our goal is to offer assistance and guidance. We want to help writers overcome their insecurities, and by offering encouragement we are creating a community of support.The first Wednesday of each month, we blog about our fears, insecurities, or even an accomplishment we had.
Last month my IWSG post was about growing a thick skin. This week I'm admitting to my deep issue of procrastination.
I have terrible focus. I believe it was Ellen DeGeneres that said: "Why do today what you can put off til tomorrow." That's really how I am sometimes sadly with my writing. I'll have all these good ideas, things that flow through my head, but when I sit to write, any and everything distracts me. I've tried closing internet tabs to keep myself from being tempted to surf the net, but then I just reopen them. Part of my lack of focus is due to my bad habit of second guessing myself and what I'm writing. I need to find a way to actually write when I set aside time to do so instead of finding every reason not to.
Thanks for stopping by and happy writing.
