Summer is ending? An IWSG Post




September? My calendar must be wrong. The summer can’t be ending. It was too much fun for it to be over already. **double checking wall calendar** -well, hunh, lookey there…it really is over.

I’d be lying if I said I was happy to know the cooler weather was on its way. I’m not. Not even a little. But with fall comes football so at least I have that to look forward- oh wait. I’m a Giants fan. We’ll be lucky if we break even this year. Stupid JPP and his fireworks accident. Ugh! 

There must be something awesome about the arrival of fall. Ah, yes! I got it! I can get back to blogging and become active in the Insecure Writer’s Support Group again. Hooray!

This month I’m not feeling insecure at all. A little scared because my mafia book is almost completed but that’s a post for another day. I actually feel good about my writing because I’ve gotten quite a bit done on my self-help book over the last couple months.

It was a good idea for me to put it down then pick it back up again after some time passed. It allowed me to get back that perspective I had lost. Time to remember just how far I’ve come in my healing process and as a couple with Devin. Time really did make my heart grow fonder for the book that once had me feeling so insecure and confused about my writing skills. I’m an awesome writer. Just ask me; I’ll tell ya.

I’m still on track to have it finished by the end of the year. Maybe not published, but at least in its final editing stage. That makes me super happy and super grateful for all I’ve learned the last two years when I decided to really buckle down and be an aspiring writer instead of imagining how cool it'd be.



How about you? Did you have a good summer too? What adventures did you have while I was away? Were you able to fit in some writing along with some playtime?

(Side note: I have work today so I'll pop in on everyone later this afternoon.)
