September always signals to me that it is time to stop goofing off and to get serious. This must carry over from childhood or actually well into adulthood when September was all about school.
I actually did not do too poorly over the summer. I did a lot of writing but now I have some serious deadlines coming up. I have a lot of polishing to do.
Is it possible to be feeling very insecure and feeling very confident at the same time? Dumb question because that is exactly how I have been feeling. I am so glad it is time for…
The Insecure Writer’s Support Group
Purpose: To share and encourage. Writers can express doubts and concerns without fear of appearing foolish or weak. Those who have been through the fire can offer assistance and guidance. It’s a safe haven for insecure writers of all kinds!
Posting: The first Wednesday of every month is officially Insecure Writer’s Support Group day. Post your thoughts on your own blog. Talk about your doubts and the fears you have conquered. Discuss your struggles and triumphs. Offer a word of encouragement for others who are struggling. Visit others in the group and connect with your fellow writer – aim for a dozen new people each time. Be sure to link to Alex’s page and display the badge in your post.
Let’s rock the neurotic writing world!

I know that I have two good books ready to go. The truth is I just do not like putting together proposals. I want to skip all that and get down to production. When will I learn to do the proposal with the outline, at the beginning of my project? I am putting it down on paper now. You are my witnesses. Book number four will have a proposal before I write the first word. That was easy.
When do you write your proposal? Do you stress over the process? I need to suck it up and get it done this weekend. The faster I get it done the faster production happens. Perhaps a reward of some kind would help. A reward that involves a beach would be nice. I wish summer wasn’t over.
What is on your schedule for September?
