The Finish Line





Hello Everyone, hope life is treating you well.  Seems hard to believe it's time for another Insecure Writer's Group Post.  What's even harder to believe is it's been two months since I've updated my blog.  I know there's no excuse for such neglect, but all I can say is the majority of my free time has been devoted to writing my novel.  Unfortunately, I'm still about three to four chapters short of my goal to complete it by April.

 I attribute some of this to writer's block.  There have been days where I was rearing to go, but when I sat in front of my computer could not articulate a sentence to save my life.  These types of sessions seem to be more frequent lately.  In fact, I've found that the more eager I am to complete my novel, the worse the block becomes.  Being so close to the finishing line makes me want to write through it, but I'm not sure that's the correct course of action.

I'm insecure about the above noted obstacles.  They make me feel like the end to a very long writing journey will never come. Have any of you been in my situation?  If so, I'd welcome any and all suggestions that would help me get back on track.  Until next time my friends, happy writing.
