IWSG


Today, I have no insecurities.

Today, I have no regrets.

Today is special.

Today, is my son's fourth birthday.


I will not worry about my writing. I will not give self-doubt a second thought. I will however, have a wonderful day celebrating with my children. We will blow balloons, open presents, and eat cake and ice cream, and I will not worry about my diet. We will dance to silly songs, make  homemade Christmas decorations and celebrate with family and friends. 

Tomorrow, I will deal with my self-inflicted issues, but not today. 

Thanks to everyone stopping by today. I'll be sure to make my rounds and visit you guys tomorrow. But if insecurities are getting  in your way today, then go around them, go under them, or get into your spaceship and blast over them. You're a writer and you can do anything.   (:

And if my sources are correct, DL Hammons over at Crusing Altitude, host of Write Club and Carrie Butler, author of the soon to be released book Strength, are also having birthdays today *throws confetti*!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!

Happy Birthday DL and Carrie :D

  4. Hey,

    Happee Beeerday (that's French for "Happy Birthday") and enjoy your little guy :)

    I remember - like it was only last year - that my five-year-old was four... sigh... those memories :)

  5. Well many happy returns of the day to your little man - I'm not even sure if I recall being four? But HAPPY BIRTHDAY, little buddy - enjoy it whilst you can, because rest assured, as soon as you're old enough to carry heavy objects, mummy will have you out working, earning the family crust... parents are so pushy these days, just terrible *shakes head* ;)

    But in all seriousness, I hope the little fella has a wonderful time of it, and also HAPPY BIRTH DAY to you, Elise - it's also your day of celebration. I think people always forget that fact, that mother's should celebrate the day they gave birth to their little bundle of joy, a way of giving them a 'thank you' for all that hard work and effort, all the love and the tears, the ups and downs, all culminating in this special day shared by mother and child :)

    1. This is one of the most thoughtful comments I've ever received. Merci Mark. Sending you a big internet hug and when I get across the channel, beer and crepes are on me. (; And yes, as soon as the little guy is taller than me, I'm putting him to work, that should give him another year or two. :P

  17. This is the sweetest post ever, Elise. You're absolutely right about priorities. People who are worrying about not getting enough writing/revising done during the holidays are just wrong. They should be enjoying the season, their families and friends, and taking time for themselves. People shouldn't narrow the focus of their whole lives to be about writing only.
    I hope your son had a wonderful birthday! :-D
