On the first Wednesday of every month, the Insecure Writer’s Support Group encourages writers to talk about their insecurities.

I'm revising. And that's the worst part of writing because, even though I love making all the pieces fit, it doesn't feel productive and there's random attacks of "WHAT IF I FIX IT AND IT'S STILL AWFUL?????"
Am I wasting my time on this when I could be working on something better? How would I know when it's time to give up on a project? Is my lack of interest because I have ADHD and can't stick to one project, or because it's boring?
But some interesting developments on one story have reignited my interest. In my notes for Blue Incarnations, I mention Flarpball a lot. Flarpball was a placeholder I used because I wasn't sure what sports would exist in the future, and it was never supposed to be part of the book past draft one.
Until a friend on Twitter got involved. He asked me something about Flarpball, I said "I don't know. I kind of imagined it like lacrosse but on hoverboards" and next thing I know he sends me the history and gameplay of Flarpball.
And it's awesome. And it fits in with my world and uses technology that might actually fix some plot problems!


  1. Flarpball--what a cool idea! I love the name, too, and the way you drew inspiration from your writing tribe.

  2. The name... I think it's a wee bit silly, bur it's growing on me.
