Insecure Writer's Support Group

Happy First Wednesday! It's time for another Insecure Writer's Support Group post! As always, thank you, Alex J. Cavanaugh and co-hosts, for keeping this going. Visit the official website to join us.

Where am I this month? Well, I decided to pen my resignation letter and have it waiting in the wings. Most of me wants to just turn it in, but the sensible side of me says to wait until I have a new job in the bag. I've applied to a dozen jobs in the last few weeks, so hopefully I hear from one soon.

This may also be the year I go ahead and self-publish. I don't think I have it in me to keep querying. I'll just be happy knowing my book is out there. Then, I'll just have to up my self-marketing, and it no longer sounds like a super scary thing to do.

So wish me luck!

I self-published last year and haven’t had any regrets. I think it depends on how you quantify success. I feel content that a handful of people read and liked my book.

Whatever you decide, I wish you the best of luck!!!

Good luck with both the job search and the publishing!

Fingers crossed for you! Hope one of the applications you turned in leads to some good news soon.

And how exciting that you're thinking of self-publishing! Traditional publishing definitely isn't the end-all, be-all like it used to be. Would be fun to see your work out in the world. Best of luck, if you go this route!
