Yes, it's the first Wednesday in JUNE - how on earth did we get into June? I saw people in town earlier today in Ugg boots and coats - no wonder I'm confused!
So, it's that day when we get to tell each other how insecure we're feeling without feeling whiney. Hooray! I'm looking forward to reading some of the other blogs in a minute, but first my insecurity...
On one front I'm feeling very secure and excited as I've recently had two stories accepted for online anthologies, but that doesn't compare to the number I've recently had rejected by women's magazines! I find discovering those emails in my inbox so stressful that it's almost put me off submitting altogether. I think I have a good idea for a new womag story and I'm going to start it tonight and see if it fits the requirements (in my opinion, anyway) but I'm almost too scared to submit it (sad face).
Fear not, fellow-writers - I am not the sort to stick my head in the sand so I WILL submit it, but please think of my bitten fingernails and stress-induced IBS and wish me luck!
On a more positive note, an almost completely formed plot for a novel popped into my head the other morning, so I can spend the summer attacking that!
Happy Insecure Wednesday to you!
