This post is for Alex Cavanaugh’s Insecure Writers Support Group (click the link for details on what that means and how to join. You will also find a list of bloggers signed up to the challenge that are worth checking out. The first Wednesday of every month, we all post our thoughts, fears or words of encouragement for fellow writers.
This month’s insecurity – As you look back on 2017, with all its successes/failures, if you could backtrack, what would you do differently?
I have to say, I’m not the type to dwell on my past. There are a few things I wish I hadn’t done decades ago–nothing to do with writing–but these events did help me grow into the person I am now. I apologize when I make a mistake, fix problems I create or run into, but I really don’t stress over my mistakes. I credit that attitude (yep, I’m happy to not look back with regret) on my supremely supportive circle of friends and family. They seem to love and support me no matter my mistakes.
I’m interested to see what everyone else writes!
