Today is the first Wednesday of the month and so comes time for our monthly Insecure Writer's Support Group.
Thank you to our host Captain Ninja Alex J. Cavanaugh Every month writers post their doubts, concerns and
insecurities without fear of appearing foolish or weak. Others offer
assistance and guidance in the comments.

Over the past 6-8 months I've pulled back from a lot of my social media. At the time, I didn't realize I was doing it, but time only allowed me to write, not "socialize" too much. I've been writing quite a bit, trying to concentrate on that part of my career, but I do want to get back to blogging more regularly, my Facebook, twitter etc... I miss connecting with people out there the way I used to.
But (of course there is a but) I'm so afraid it will cut into my writing again. I've tried allotting time for social media, but that does not work for me. What it boils down to is how much of social media is enough so that it does not jeopardize my writing time. I don't want tto use FB or Twitter because I have to - I want to do it because I want to.
How do you balance the writing and socializing on the net? What are your insecurities this month?
