Focussing on What Matters

Insecure Writer's Support GroupSeptember has been a month of big changes. It’s been a month for letting things go. Things that no longer serve me or my plans.

We’ve done a huge declutter of the house (meaning that I finally have a proper office space back, and my beautiful desk back, after more than a year writing at the dining table). Some things, we’d been carrying around for ten years. Moving house with it numerous times. And it’s gone. Not all of it, yet, but most of it. And I feel lighter in myself.

I’ve also been decluttering my business. Letting go of the parts of it that I had no passion for, no interest in pursuing, so that I can focus on what’s important to me. The parts that I love.

Change always means letting go of something. Good or bad, we have to say goodbye to some things in order to say hello to others. And it’s scary. Sometimes it’s exciting-scary, other times it’s just scary-scary, but on the other side of that scary are so many good things to come.

On Saturday I’ll be doing one of my favourite things; leading a writing workshop at a convention. I’ll also be talking on a couple of panel discussions and, for the first time, I’ll have some of my books on sale. That’s one of those scary-exciting things, and something I’d love to do more of.

What scary-exciting things have you been doing lately?
