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.

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!
JULY 05th QUESTION: What is one valuable lesson you’ve learned since you started writing?
I’ve learned lots of valuable lessons, but the one I’d like to make mention of today is – join a writing community. The support you get is priceless! So that’s the reason why I’m participating in CampNaNoWriMo this month. But it’s not going as well as I’d hoped. It’s only day 5 so…we’ll see…
The Insecure Writer’s Support Group made the Writer’s Digest 19th Annual 101 Best Websites for Writers!
Special thanks to all the writers and authors who have supported the group and the site over the years. You are the reason for ongoing success of the site. We couldn’t have done it without you!
