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.
The IWSG anthology contest opens September 5th.
The genre – Young Adult romance.
The theme will be announced on September 5th, so don’t miss it.
Every month, we announce a question that members can answer in their IWSG post. These questions may prompt you to share advice, insight, a personal experience or story. Include your answer to the question in your IWSG post or let it inspire your post if you are struggling with something to say.
Remember, the question is optional!
JUNE 06th QUESTION: What’s harder for you to come up with, book titles or character names?
I struggle with character names. My characters remain Mrs. B, Mr. X and Miss Y for a very long time.
I haven’t done much writing over the past month. I’ve been really busy with setting exam papers; and now that we’re in full exam mode, there’s the marking and moderation of scripts taking up loads of my time.
Our mid-year school break is coming up end of the month and and then I’ll use the time to get back into the swing of writing. Maybe I’ll start another 100words100days challenge.
Reminder! The next IWSG Twitter pitch event, #IWSGPit, is July 19! See that page for details. Some great success stories have come from the first two – it could be you.
NOTE: The July IWSG post day will be on Tuesday, July 3rd instead of Wednesday, July 4th. (Fourth of July national holiday in the United States.)
