It's time once again for the Insecure Writer's Support Group! This group was formed by none other than the Ninja Captain himself, Alex J. Cavanaugh. This month, he is receiving co-hosting assistants from the following bloggers/minions: C.D. Coffelt, Tina Downey, Isis Rushdan, and Michelle Wallace.
If you haven't checked it out already, go to the new IWSG webpage. It's awesome! Kudos to the amazing people that made it possible!
I'm currently under the weather, so my motivation to write is currently suffering somewhat, but I'm doing the best that I can. I haven't stopped completely. As a result of this illness, however, my level of hot tea consumption has skyrocketed. Not that this is in any way a bad thing.
Anyway, I've been struggling with what to write for this post. My mind is simply scattered right now. So I looked up some writing quotes in the hope that one of them would inspire me. And guess what. It worked! Inspiration can be found anywhere. Sometimes you simply have to seek it out.
"The road to hell is paved with works-in-progress." -Philip Roth
I can relate to this. I have more works-in-progress than I feel like I should, probably because my head is overflowing with ideas, and I often wonder if I'll complete them all. I'm sure I'm not alone in this, although it sometimes feels like I am when I see others finishing wonderful books left and right.
Does anyone else out there ever feel this way? How do you handle it when too many ideas come to you all at once?
