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!
MARCH 04th QUESTION: Other than the obvious holiday traditions, have you ever included any personal or family traditions/customs in your stories?
It’s been a hectic two months. Hectic and scorching! It’s cooled down a little and I’m just trying to recover from the craziness of January and February. We’re moving into autumn now and the humidity has eased up.
Over the past two months, I didn’t get much writing done, so now I need to get back into the swing of things. I will be working on editing some of the flash fiction pieces I’ve written over the last few years. I like returning to older pieces with a fresh eye. Distance lends great perspective and sometimes, when I re-read a piece that I can’t remember, it can be a pleasant surprise to discover some gems.
Here’s the March Instagram schedule:
Happy IWSG Day!
