ISWG: Climbing from the Funk

Visit the originator here!

Sounds like a weird 70s song, doesn't it?

So this season I have gone from being infected by the depressed writer bug that went around, to a hopeful outlook for what 2013 will bring, to panic mode. Now that Spring is around the corner, I guess I will chalk all of the aforementioned to seasonal depression with manic tendencies. I've even started editing my manuscript again with less of a "Oh God, why am I doing this again?" and more of a "Hey, I can expand on this part right here!" Expound? Expand? >.>

Anyway, this will be a short one, but I just wanted to tell everyone to hang in there! Spring is coming, and with Spring hopefully sunny days and positive events, attitudes, and outlooks. If you're still fighting your way out of the writer's sinkhole many of us fell into, don't give up, and remember we're all here for you!

Thank you to Sensei Alex J. Cavanaugh for creating the Insecure Writer's Support Group!


  1. What if we don't have the 'winter blahs' to blame? I live in Sunny Florida :)

    1. Hurricane Delayed Emotions Syndrome. lol

  2. That's a great outlook to have. Even if the seasons aren't to blame it's always a good lesson to remember that sunnier times are just around the corner and to keep plugging at it.

  3. Weather in L.A. is usually good--but I am still looking forward to SPring.

  4. Yay, Debra! I'm glad the gloom has lifted! It sounds like you've turned the corner. I'm guessing you left your manuscript alone for awhile and have come back to it with a refreshed mind and eyes. You go girl! :)

  5. I was there too! But I think the hope of spring has helped me out a bit :)

  6. "Seasonal depression with manic tendencies..."
    I think you just described my world! LOL. It'll all smooth out eventually and on and on we go!
    You're awesome! Good to find your blog!

  7. Wow, I didn't know there was a sinkhole. No wonder I fell into it. ;)

  8. Thanks for the encouragement, Debra. I really needed it! I'm eating hemp, and I think it's working. But man is depression ever exhausting. You're right. no more sinkholes!

  9. Need spring. Need spring. Need spring. Like now. Nope, still snow outside, but it is coming and I can't wait. Thanks for the post!

  10. Uh oh, us writers in the rainy old UK are in trouble then - haha!
