Insecure Writer's Support Group

I'll know how big this is, and if it's centered  later.

Happy Wednesday! It's the first Wednesday of September, which means it's time for the Insecure Writer's Support Group, a day where we anxious writers her to share our worries with each other. Click here for more information and to join us. A big thank you to Alex J. Cavanaugh and co-hosts for keeping this going.

I answered this month's question last month, actually: What publishing path are you considering/did you take, and why?

I have entered my last contest, and if it doesn't pan out well, I will be self-publishing. I'm at an age now where I need some control over the things I love to do before I end up resenting them. I've said it before that my family is full of "what-if" people, and I do not want to be one of them.

That said, I'm also going to take a break from blogging the month of September. I'll know by October if I'll be coming back. Usually by the next month, I'm eager to post again, but at the moment I keep forgetting to, so I need to recharge.

In that break, I hope to finally get around to visiting other blogs again, so I hope to see you soon!

No one wants what ifs in their life!
Just post for the IWSG and take a break.

Enjoy your break! I haven't really been in a blogging mood for a while, and pretty much just do the IWSG posts. Hoping I get the motivation for it again soon.

Caitlin Coppola said...

Definitely consider self-pubbing! Enjoy your month off :)

Happy Be-lated IWSG Day!
I wish you all the best, whether your contest pans out or you pursue self-publishing. I used to blog 30 days a month, now I'm down to 1 planned day and maybe a few others. Take care of yourself and do what works for you.

Hope you've been having a good blogging break! And best of luck self-publishing, should you find yourself going down that path. It's definitely a good route to take, if you want some control. Will keep my fingers crossed for you for that contest you entered, in the meantime!

I vote for epublishing. Lots of people make an income from doing so.
