The Insecure Writer's Support Group meets globally online on the first Wednesday of the month. It's a day where we can release our fears of writing or offer support to those in need. You can join up at any time by clicking on this link. This month's co-hosts are Chemist Ken, S.L. Hennessey, Michelle Wallace, and Jolene Butler. A big shout-out to all of you for helping Alex this month!
I'm not feeling the insecurity this month. So, I'm offering up support. If you need it, grab some!! It's here, free for the taking. Need a shoulder to cry on? Ears to gripe at? Email me: firstname.lastname@example.org. Anytime. xoxoxo
***If you're wondering about the title of this post, well, I'm in between projects. Sort of. I'm waiting to hear back on some feedback, and I finished a first draft of yet another project. So now what? Do I twiddle my thumbs?
Thumbtwiddling: To interlace the fingers and roll the thumbs in a circular motion, aka, twiddling. An action most performed by those who are bored. A complete waste of time.
For me, in between projects is a good time to get busy.
I'm lusting over another story idea. I use the word lust, because that's the sort of crazed, I've-got-to-write-it drive I experience when researching a new premise. Surfing the Internet, reading articles, books, and just about anything I can get my eyes on relating to the subject. It's as if I can't get enough. Sort of like me with Blue Bell Buttered Pecan ice cream.
How about you? Do you get lost or bored between projects? Are you a thumbtwiddler? What are your favorite sources for researching a new project?
