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!
DECEMBER 05th QUESTION: What are five objects we’d find in your writing space?
My space is very simple. No good luck charms or anything of the sort. It’s a bland setting.
The lamp illuminating my keyboard.
An empty coffee cup. That’s about it.
One object I’d love to see in my writing space? A white board with a collection of colorful markers, on which to plot/plan/
draw/brainstorm/mind-map and enjoy other creative pursuits…
Don’t forget, the next Twitter pitch event is in January! It’s a great way to get noticed by editors and agents.
The participants have started posting entries for the December WEP Challenge!
I just need to polish my story and then post it by the end of this week!
The IWSG held a competition, open to all, for the best prompt to kick off 2019 in February. They graciously offered a prize. The WEP team chose an entry by Toinette Thomas, 28 DAYS.
There was also an in-house competition between the IWSG admin to come up with the best prompt for December 2019. The winner was Tyrean Martinson. The WEP team liked her suggestion, FOOTPRINTS.
So we’ve come to the end of another year. And I’m feeling tired. We’re wrapping up all the admin at school. There are schedules to complete… and a few other odds and sods. Then we break for a month. I can’t wait. I’ll be visiting blogs over the next few days.
A wonderful holiday season to all IWSGers!
