Dealing With Insecurity

I have always had certain insecurities, some developed so long ago I have forgotten what it is like to live without them. Some of them are harder than others, and they all flare at different things. Dealing with insecurities, often which are quite personal, can be hard.

Recently, some of my insecurities have been bad. I've removed myself from the main situation that was causing it, but you cannot always avoid people. The more I try to ignore my insecurities, the more I find myself walking with my head down, clutching my folder begging people not to notice me. I don't honestly think that any human being can lay the claim to not have ever feeling insecure. There are however, ways to deal with it.

Cake Book Tag

Honestly, I just go to restaurants to eat so I won't die. If there was a pill I could take in January and then I wouldn't have to eat again for the rest of the year, I would take it. Of course, I wouldn't want to sacrifice my chocolate cake and ice cream.

Snippets: When I am Weak

'One day I will find the right words, and they will be simple.' - Jack Kerouac

In my 'Writing Stages' post a few days ago, I admitted I was pretty much frustrated and unable to write. Today, my fingers suddenly flew again! It is beautiful, I have to say. It is a long time since I've sat down to write and have actually written.  I wonder if Henry David Thoreau was right: How vain it is to sit down to write when you have not stood up to live. And live recently, I have.

In celebration of exhausting my metal capacity, I thought I might share some of today's writing with you. When I am Weak is turning out to be quite intense in some places, and I'm scaring myself a bit.

The Stages of Writing [Camp NaNoWriMo]

In honour of Camp NaNoWriMo, I have compiled a GIF post of the writing process. Now, this might not ring true for all, but I think it does an okay job. Camp NaNoWriMo is strange for me, I have finished King of Fire, which is what I spent most of last year writing. And I miss it.

Annnnyways, without further ado! (does anyone else find ado a weird word? No? Just me?)
