Purpose: To share and encourage. Writers can express doubts and concerns without fear of appearing foolish or weak. Those who have been through the fire can offer assistance and guidance. It’s a safe haven for insecure writers of all kinds!
Posting: The first Wednesday of every month is officially Insecure Writer’s Support Group day. Post your thoughts on your own blog. Talk about your doubts and the fears you have conquered. Discuss your struggles and triumphs. Offer a word of encouragement for others who are struggling. Visit others in the group and connect with your fellow writer – aim for a dozen new people each time.
Our Twitter hashtag is #IWSG
Here’s a jumble of recent reading and writerly thinggies…
~ Still recovering from the A to Z Challenge. Almost there.
~ Fallen off the ‘write-a-haiku-a-day’ bandwagon – for the hundredth time. Nothing new. So I’ll just pick myself up, dust myself off, and continue…
~ I submitted to a few e-zines. Received one rejection and one acceptance… *happy dance*… more info later…
~ Still reading and posting reviews to Goodreads and Amazon.
~ Plodding along with the writing, so my blogging hiatus will continue for a short while. You’ll still catch me on Facebook/Twitter/G+ and I WILL pop in and visit blogs from time to time.
(If I haven’t visited your blog, don’t think that I’ve forgotten about you. I will visit some blogs later this evening and also over the next few days.)
I leave you with a quote:”The contract between the author and the reader is a game. And the game…is one of the greatest inventions of Western civilization: the game of telling stories, inventing characters, and creating the imaginary paradise of the individual, from whence no one can be expelled because, in a novel, no one owns truth and everyone has the right to be heard and understood.”
SO WRITE ON IWSG PEEPS!
