Welcome to the monthly round-up of writers known as the Insecure Writer's Support Group! Join us!

This being November, aka NaNoWriMo month, this will be short--I need to save my words to get the book done!

Today I wanted to talk about how my creativity has changed since I first started (yes, that's a prompt from IWSG ;)).

I've been writing a very long time, so going back to the very beginning would be painful...and I probably forgot it anyway ;).

 For me the changes occurred as I gained confidence that there were total strangers out there who enjoyed my work and as my skill grew (yes, I am going back to those olden days I said I couldn't recall ;)).  The better I understood craft, the easier it was to let my creativity grow.

It's easier to be creative and wild with skills to back it up ;).

I'd say over all, my creativity might not have changed--but my ability to access it has :)

Happy IWSG Day!


  1. Good luck with NaNo! I'm doing NaNo for the first time. :)

    1. Thank you! I love NaNo, it forces me to just write and gets my inner editor to shut up! Good luck!

  2. Happy NaNo and the only confidence, deep and steady, is in my craft. I'm so shy about the rest of me.

    1. Thank you! But having confidence in one aspect is a start. :)

  3. "I'd say over all, my creativity might not have changed--but my ability to access it has."

    Great line. And so true. Good luck with NaNo.

  4. Skills certainly help bring the right words to the page.
    Good luck with NaNo!

  5. That's great, Marie. Good luck with NaNo. I don't do it, but I admire those who do. Enjoy.
