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.
Our Twitter hashtag is #IWSG
Since my mind is still in “A to Z mode”, here’s my A to Z of writerly insecurities…
(This is a repost from last year. I had NO
time functioning brain cells energy to prepare a post for today. Am I forgiven? Please?)
I’m an adequate, befuddled chancer, a dabbler who endeavours to fabricate stories with genuine heartfelt intentions… I have jumbled knowledge, but I’m learning, mastering (ha! hopefully) faced with never-ending obstacles. Pressure quickens the realisation that stories take time to unearth. I’m a vacillating wannabe who yearns to reach the zenith… (patience… breathe… patience… perseverance… breathe…) but I do have oodles of zing, zip and zest!(hope that counts…)
Lazy? Creative? Pick one.
I hope that I can get around to visit a few IWSG’ers today/tomorrow/Friday… and on the weekend too…
Happy IWSG day!
