I’m not sure. I think it’s time for my monthly installment re. Insecure Writers Support Group.
(PS. All pictures are random. I only worry that I made the right decision to add them?)
This may sound weird, but I’m sad and glad I didn’t do A-Z.
April was a bloody interesting month – to say the least – but I would’ve ripped the remaining seven strands of hair from my shiny bald head if I’d tried to get those twenty-six posts in on time.
|Do you think I caught the cup in time? Nope.|
(Stops to tip Angels ball cap for everyone who did make it from Alpha to Zombie…. Well done youez. J
However, by not doing A-Z, did I miss out?
I’m think I did.
No, I know I did, but bailing at the last moment was the right thing for me to do – even though I had my theme set up and my posts ready to drop.
Dude, just save them for next year…
Yes, but what happens if I get knocked down and impaled by a flying surfboard jetting off the slick top of a ’66 Beetle?
Well, it could happen…
Hang on… Checks calendar… Ohhhh I get it, it’s IWSG post, right?
Yes, and I think I’ve missed out on a great opportunity to build the base.
“Build the base?” What are you – a military architect?
No, don’t be such a Lardhead, but look, I’ve missed out on meeting dozens of new peeps and perhaps gaining an extra follower or five.
How many do you have now?
228 (oh, make that 229…thanks Jessica at Breathings J
How many did you have in early February, when you posted about reaching 100 followers?
Er, I’m not sure, let me check…. (Keyboard clatters… elbow hits drink… which spills on table…
This leads to emissions of “cluck me!” and “mother rooster!” and other, terribly fowl language from the mouth that is in serious need of a large bar of soap…
|No. 1 Son (age 4) had to tell me the secret? Can you guess?|
I have no idea? Seventy-two? Eighty-six?
(Sounds of near crying… as much as a mental voice can nearly cry.)
How about 100...
So you had 100 in early February; you’re at about 230 now, and you’ve passed 11,000 views, so things can’t be that bad. Right?
My Gosh! You’re right, old man!
Plus, you’ve a great core group of awesome readers who understand that you talk to yourself...
And answer – don’t forget that!
...OK, and answer, because you’re at home with three kids under five for much of the day.
Right! (OH! Has anyone seen the latest Wiggles episode… it’s awesome! Jeff falls asleep… again :)
So why are you worried this month?
I don’t know – was I worried? Oh yes, not doing A-Z.
Well, like I said, some of your April posts were very well received – so perhaps you weren’t meant to do A-Z this year… what do you think about those bananas?
Rigght… but I wasn’t thinking about bananas…?
It’s just a saying. (Deep mental breath…) You know I’m trapped inside your head, but you could focus a little more. Maybe you can do A-Z next year…
|The fish was *this* big. But was it even a fish?|
I can? Won’t the people in charge of the Blogisfear kick me out ‘cos I wasted so much ink?
No, they won’t. I promise. And sure, WIP should be done and it’ll be a treat to plan your daily posts.
Thanks, I don’t feel insecure anymore. How long will this last?
About thirty days.
Glad I could help you remove and replace this month’s mental issues… but I have one question…
Does that make me an insecurities trader?
