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!

HAPPY NEW YEAR EVERYBODY!! I wish you LOVE, JOY, PEACE, GOOD HEALTH, and GOOD FORTUNE…
Have an awesome 2016!
I also need a ‘brainstorming buddy’…one or two…you know sometimes you need to pick somebody’s brain for a few minutes, especially when I’m busy with my microfiction pieces (under 500 words) and I’m working to a deadline.
With regards to CPs – do you stay with the same CPs for all your stories, or do you change from one project to the next? I’ve read (more than once) that it’s good if one of your CPs writes in a totally different genre.
What do I write? I write stories that don’t have any ‘other-worldly beings’ (okay, I did write an urban fantasy story, but only once) but there are always twists and turns…and lots of suspense!
If you’re interested, then leave your e-mail in the comments section below or you can PM me on Facebook and we can take it from there…
Questions: How many CPs do you have? Is it a mutual arrangement? Do you have CPs from a different genre? Do you have a ‘brainstorming buddy’ as well?
