|Brain Child of Alex J. Cavanaugh|
See these nails? I stopped biting them just in time to save the fingertips and why? Because I’m an INSECURE WRITER; I need those fingers for the keyboard.
This is me when I was an INSECURE ACTRESS, biting my nails. (Ignore the caption. Marilyn was always trying to get the spotlight away from me. I think she might have been more insecure than I was.)
I don’t know which is worse, my insecurity on stage or what I’m enduring now. But I no longer look like the picture above. Here’s a more recent one.
|Writer on the Verge . . . but of what?|
Oh, I have me ups and downs. There have been days when I’ve seen myself with the Nobel prize for literature clutched in my nibbled fingers. I once thought I’d craft a Newberry Award acceptance speech just in case . . . you know the phone rang. But when a call came through on the day the award was decided, it was the vet telling me I could pick up Buffy.
This is my INSECURE WRITERS REJECTION week and I’m celebrating by joining the blog hop of other angst-filled-creative-finger nibblers. At last a support group.
