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.
Don’t forget to visit them and thank them for co-hosting!

What motivates you to write?
Is it for money? To empower/educate? As therapy? I know for lots of writers, it’s passion…heart!
How did you choose your genre? Or are you a multi-genre writer? Lots of writers are experimenting across genres/styles. I think that there are “X” number of books you can physically write in your small lifetime. The “X” differs from one author to the next. So bearing that in mind, shouldn’t authors stick with one genre? The flip side of the coin is this: considering the ever-changing face of the publishing industry, isn’t multi-genre the way to go?
I’d love to hear your thoughts on this.
Happy IWSG Day!
