It's a new year, 2016 Insecure Writer's Support Group.

Greeting all on this first Wednesday of the month. Once again, it's the first Wednesday of the month and in this case, of the year. Thanks to Alex J. Cavanaugh. it's also the first post of ISWG for the year.

Insecurities. What are they?

When my daughter was a newborn, I was a little insecure about feeding her, bathing her, getting her dressed and changing her diapers. That all passed in a few short days. Why? Because I had experience and experience builds confidence. Even so, we are often plagued by our insecurities. At the tender age of 64, I can tell you, much of those insecurities are swept away in the aging process.

So besides insecurities, what are your writing goals for 2016?

Mine are to finish, The Rise of Lord Sinon, I'm in the first round of edits now. To write another Halloween Collection and a faerie collection for both Christmas and Valentine's Day next year. Not enough time for V. Day this new year. And of course, to start on Book three of my epic fantasy series, The Chronicles of Gil-Lael. If you look at it all bunched together it looks overwhelming, but if you handle each thing a day at a time you can succeed.

What are some of your insecurities and/or writing goals?

I think your goals are reachable, and I wish you well in conquering them. The first step is writing them down, so I'd say you are well on your way. May 2016 be your writing year - and each year thereafter!

My insecurities are too many to list, and the priority shifts with each day. You are making some good progress on your goals already Nancy. Keep on going :)

My biggest insecurity is that I'll never finish my story, so my writing goal is to finally finish that story in 2016.

The more we do something, the better we become, and the more confidence we gain.

Experience always helps. As long as we try new things and get the experience, we can beat our insecurities. :)

Happy 2016!!!

I definitely find that as I get older, my insecurities lessen. Great goals!
