The Insecure Writer’s Support Group! is a platform for all writers where we get a chance to release our fears to the world – or offer encouragement to those who are feeling neurotic. The group posts the first Wednesday of every month. You are encouraged to visit at least a dozen new blogs and leave a comment. Your words might be the encouragement someone needs.
Don't forget to check out the IWSG on Facebook. The "News & Promo Saturday" feature is up and running. For those who don't know, the Saturday feature is a platorm where you have the opportunity to post one promotional piece and share some "writerly news" with the group, e.g. if you are planning a book blog tour, or want to share a great book cover, or maybe your book is going on sale, or will be free for a limited period… you can post your links in the Saturday post… or maybe you've landed an agent… signed a book deal… sold your 100th e-book… are excited about that long awaited for e-zine publication… hit that word count you've been working towards… secured another great Amazon/Goodreads review… wrapped up all 26 A to Z posts (you have approximately 26 days left before the challenge…)
The IWSG facebook Saturday feature is the appropriate posting place for all this wonderful news! Check it out… and please pass this news along! Thank you IWSG'ers, you are AN AWESOME BUNCH OF PEEPS!

During the 2012 A to Z Challenge, I posted 26 short pieces/vignettes.
I've decided to self-publish these pieces.
Well, there's no going back… and I HAVE been toying with this decision for a L-O-N-G time now… and the A to Z coming up next month has made me realise that time is passing and I need to make some decisions, but most of all ————
It feels right and I'm excited at the thought!
But for me, it has to be done properly. I want to put out a quality product. So even if it takes me another year… then so be it!
I've been doing some homework/research, and making enquiries here and there. The ball is rolling along…
I have a million-and-one-things-to-do… and the A to Z Challenge is in 26 days… and I've just submitted a proposal to start up a writing club…
So I really need to get cracking… and I still need to hop around to IWSG'ers later on…
So now I'm off to:
1. manage the state of self-induced shock that I've created
2. continue my homework/research
3. figure out where to start with the list of things to do
I'll be visiting IWSG posts over the next few days!
HAPPY WORLD READ ALOUD DAY TO EVERYBODY!!
