Oops, this one almost got away from me. Can't have that, since I have not missed a post yet! So it is time for the Insecure Writers Support Group once again! I have been laboring with my book all day long and had almost forgotten that it was the first Wednesday of the month, pretty much as I have been trying to forget that Christmas is coming. I have been looking for Christmas inspiration as much as I have been looking for inspiration to write. 38,000 words and I wonder if I am saying anything at all. My American son tells me that no one cares about their family heritage. That a story about finding family in foreign territory is just boring, ok… so I bring gods and fairytales into this story… a children’s story it is not, but maybe I need more sex and battles. I don’t know. My family in Norway refuses to read my story so far, and I can see why…hard work to read a foreign language. To be honest I feel lately like I am just flapping my wings and each sentence I write takes longer. I may have a new critique partner, but do you ever feel like giving up? Sometimes words of encouragement are just needed. Here are mine to you! Find someone to tell you not to give up, and keep looking until you do.
