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!

My IWSG post coincides with an awesome bloghop.
Thank you to the awesome hostesses Christine Rains, C. Lee McKenzie, and Tara Tyler who are hosting this MEME Blog Hop! They want to help chase away the winter blues with some Encouraging, Inspiring, and Funny MEMEs! Join us the week of Feb 29 – Mar 4!
- Post a MEME during the week (use your own pic or an easy meme maker app) – and if you can’t think of anything, pass on encouraging words from one of your reviews, or an inspiring quote! (I’m techno-challenged so it’s dangerous to encourage me to make a meme…)
- Visit others. (I can do this!!)
- That’s it! (YAY!)
Then the awesome hostesses will hop around and Ooo and Ahh and choose one entry each to win an ebook. AND two lucky random participants will win a $20 GC. Enter and spread some warmth!
This is my attempt to inspire, encourage and amuse!
As a creative being, and especially with regards to my writing journey, this is my daily mantra:
Bettering myself includes writing something daily, even if it’s one sentence! But creativity is a fickle beast. Quite often the muse has plans of her own, like attending the Annual International Muse Convention. Or she’s just lazy and refuses to budge. I know writers have different ways of luring the muse. Some bribe her with wine. Some promise chocolates. Some bombard her with music and meditation. But still she refuses to budge. Then what? In times like this, I have to remind myself that:
How reassuring is that?
I’m human after all…and life happens…and it’s okay not being perfect…
So in this state of I’m-not-perfect-and-always-in-control-but-it’s-okay-to-not-be-perfect-as-long-as-I’m-always-me, I’m signing off with this…
*no memes were harmed in the making of this post*
Want to know more about the shenanigans? It involves the following…take a look…
ADULT COLOURING BOOK! YAY!
I’m always the one who is coloring with the children. Now I have my OWN book. Maybe I’ll get the muse to budge…
You can still get in on the action and join the blog hop! Just click on the badge.
I’ll visit all the IWSGers on Wednesday!
HAPPY LEAP DAY! OVER THE NEXT FEW DAYS, I’LL BE LEAPING AROUND TO OTHER BLOGS…
