Insecure Writer's Support Group, first Wednesday of every month.
I am writing a lot lately and loving it. My greatest insecurity right now is: how do I keep from being a bitch to my family because they keep interrupting my writing time? In the space of the last hour I had to stop writing because my youngest pooped and took his diaper off and ran outside. So I had to clean up poop off the floor and then catch him (no easy task) to clean him up. My other son has been giving me presents (pieces of paper he made in school) and asking me how many minutes until he can eat sweets. My husband has been constantly coming to use the phone (yes we live close to the Stone Ages and have a corded phone) which is right next to the computer and how can I write with this person standing right next to me, yammering on the phone, asking me to find pens for him, coughing, and burping?
How do you deal with being bitchy because you want to be writing and your family won't let you?
