It’s the first Wednesday of the month, which means it’s time for our group posting for IWSG. Insecure Writer’s Support Group is the brainchild of Ninja Captain Alex J. Cavanaugh, and his co-hosts for August are Nancy Gideon, Bob R Milne, Doreen McGettigan, Chrys Fey, Bish Denham, and Pat Garcia! Thanks for all your hard work!
Taking time off from blogging is rough. You come back and then you wonder, what do you write about, and would anyone even care? I suppose that is one of my major fears and insecurities… what do I have to say and does anyone care? Maybe it’s an insecurity shared by every writer, or maybe I’m caught in a purgatory that is all my own…
I realized my brand of writing was 70% staring/procrastinating and 30% writing, which means I’m not very productive, even when it comes to something as simple as writing a blog post. And that’s what mostly accounted for my being MIA. I had some things come up, and well, blogging just became the thing that had to go, at least for a while. I’m still doing rewrites on my WIP, “Lost,” though, so I haven’t totally been unproductive writing-wise. And as I continue chugging along there while riding the crazy waves of that thing called real life, I’ve decided to continue my blogging break for a month or so. But of course, I just can’t make this post and NOT share some music. See you in Sept!

Sometimes we all need a break… and coming back from those breaks can be hard — especially if it isn’t actually time to come back!
See you in September 🙂

Enjoy your break, I hope it helps you to refocus on your writing. I have been a distracted writer lately too. I seem to be staring at an empty screen for too long. See you in the fall!

As long as you don’t give up. 🙂

Breaks keep us sane and somewhat happy. See you in Sept.

Hope things are going well for you! Looking forward to your blogging return. Good luck with your writing! As Melissa said, don’t give up.

I definitely understand breaks from writing! It wasn’t intentional, but the last post I wrote before yesterday was posted in January of this year! Breaks are good and even though it can be hard to start writing again, it’s always a good feeling when you get back into the swing of things 😀 (just my opinion)

I’ve found that many people take breaks from blogging from time to time–and they just jump right back in! It’s funny…every time I’ve taken a break, I’ve lost some readers but some stuck around. You just have to get back out there and find new ones to add to your circles!
