The Wednesday Weekly Blogging Challenge is a weekly feature which has a different prompt every Wednesday. It’s a fun way to connect with fellow bloggers hosted by Long and Short Reviews.

When it comes to things I wish I were better at, the list is a mile long and full of add-ins.

One that stands out to me is my wish that I were better at speaking up.  This is something I have struggled with for most of my life and, even today, it’s still something I deal with. I do think I am making progress, but I wish it came easily.


I wish I were better at keeping up with my writing. Expert procrastinator here.

I’ve talked on here that I’d like to be published but that’s never going to happen if I don’t finish anything and actually take the steps to have it published. More doing on my part required.

  1. My complete sympathies on both accounts. (Especially the “I’m never going to get published if I don’t finish a project” part… ouch.) Speaking up is a very off-and-on thing for me; sometimes I’m all there, and sometimes it’s like whatever I need to say just refuses to come out.

    My answers are here.

      Yes, speaking up is definitely something I want to work on, especially when it comes to defending myself. We’ll get there with finishing those projects.

  2. I overcame my fear of not speaking up years ago. Now I find it’s best to keep silent. I hope you continue to write, Leah–One day at a time, one page at a time, one day you’ll be published, and we’ll celebrate with you!

  3. LOL… speaking up isn’t an issue with me. Sometimes I’m sure my friend group wishes it was!

    Re: writing… if you have to start small, start small. There are a ton of markets for short fiction. Once you get the taste of being published, you won’t want to go back. Good luck!

      Ha ha! My close friend and my sister have no issues speaking up, and I’m the one who’s trying to calm them down. 🙂

      Thanks for your kind words, Marianne.

  4. I think finishing your books/stories is the hardest thing when you’re starting out writing. I spent YEARS getting stuck around the 10,000 word mark but once I finished that first entire novel there was no stopping me. The elation of finishing something so huge was just too good and very addictive. I still get it now with every book I write.
    Keep at it. You’ll get there!

      Thank you for your kind words. My main issue is doubt that I’ve been struggling with for more than fifteen years. I hope, one day, to be able to get past it.
