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.
FEBRUARY 03rd QUESTION – Blogging is often more than just sharing stories. It’s often the start of special friendships and relationships. Have you made any friends through the blogosphere?
When I started out blogging, I hadn’t even considered writing and publishing anything. I’ve built relationships with many of my blogging friends, who are writers.
Many of them have supported me along the way on my writerly journey. So yes, I’ve made many friends through the blogosphere.
I’m going to use this opportunity to say thank you to all my bloggy buddies, who have supported and encouraged me. There are too many to mention and I don’t want to leave anybody out.
These past few months have been particularly difficult for me.
I buried my mom, moved to another house (still in the process at the moment, which has become a conveyancing nightmare because Covid has caused a backlog) and my hubby was in an accident two weeks ago (suffered a nasty broken arm). Plus we’re back at school, amidst a declining second wave of Covid, busy with in-contact teaching BUT also preparing the online platform since you never know what will happen from day to day… so there you have it! Hectic? Yes. Very. It’s a fluid situation. Things can change from one day to the next. I’ll just take it day by day. At least I’m alive…
So I apologise if you visited my place and I haven’t returned the visit. I’ll get there.
At the moment I’m without a computer so I’m going to post this from my phone.
I hope it looks okay.
THANK YOU TO ALL MY FRIENDS/BLOGGY BUDDIES! HAPPY IWSG DAY!
