I apologize for a long departure. Considering work and some things regarding it, I decided to take a haitus from blog writing. This was also partly due to feeling very out of sorts with my own writing. I felt like blogging had become a chore, something that I did and never amounted to much. Everything I read said that continous blogging brought more interest in ones writing, yet I saw no such numbers.
Which brings me to my next point. I write my blog in order to encourage discourse, to inspire ideas. Part of the problem are hours, difficulty finding a way to segment my writing into an actual critique group. Our local group, the SLO Nightwriters is the best around, yet I find it difficult to find a group that fits my kind of writing. Furthermore, I wonder about approaching an established group as a new person. I worry that I cannot get equal time as those who have been around longer than I have.
So my question to my fellow writers is this. How do you overcome these fears? Do you face them head on? Seek the possible, and hope for the best? How do you become established so that your own dreams can take wing?
