Hey everyone! This is the first IWSG of the New Year!
The Insecure Writer’s Support Group is a writing group started by Alex J. Cavanaugh. Check out the group here! We post every first Wednesday of the month.
It’s 2015. I’ve been writing my second draft in earnest since just after Christmas (I’m in Chapter Five) and I’m having a great time doing it. Few writing-related insecurities right now (that’ll change). But what will 2015 bring? I’m more insecure or anxious about getting myself motivated to do other, non-writing-related, necessary real-world things. I suppose I get task-avoidant when things make me anxious, but in this instance, I can’t be like that.
We were also asked to give a short intro with this post.
My name is Michelle Athy. I’m from Queens, New York, went to Emerson College in Boston to study writing, and primarily write historical fiction. I also have an obsession with anything purple and a love of beaded necklaces. Welcome!
