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!
Our Twitter handle is @TheIWSG and hashtag is #IWSG.
Remember, the question is optional!
MARCH 05th QUESTION: How do you celebrate when you achieve a writing goal/finish a story?
I’m pass the halfway point of my #100words100days challenge goal! Today is day 66 – only 34 days left… but it feels like forever!!
January: I pledged 200 new words a day for January. I wrote every day in January and surpassed my goal of writing 6,000 new words, with a total of 7310 words!
February: I pledged 200 new words a day for February. I wrote every day in February and surpassed my goal of writing 6,000 new words, with a total of 6286 words!
March: I pledged 100 new words a day for this month and this month’s goal is 3100 words.
I’m feeling a bit tired at this point. There are days when I think it’s going to be an uphill battle, but once I read the previous days entry and the new prompt for the day, let the creative juices take over and get down to business, then the words come.
There have been those days when I felt dog-tired and the words straggled along… other times it’s been a smoother process.
From the 31st January till today, the 07th March, I’ve written 14 616 new words. Not too bad for a person who at one stage, in the not-so-distant past, struggled to write beyond 100 words… what do you think?
I’m not sure how I’ll celebrate when I reach day 100… any ideas?
Happy IWSG Day! I’ll be visiting blogs during the course of the week and over the week-end. Then back to my writing balloon!
