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 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!
October 6th Question – In your writing, where do you draw the line, with either topics or language? I’ll have to think about this one. But not today… because the 100words100days challenge has FRIED my brain!!
Today is day 98 of my 100words100days challenge. I’m worn out, excited, frustrated, happy, relieved… a mixture of all the emotions.
Over the last 3 months, I’ve been writing every single day.
Every. Single. Day.
EVERY SINGLE DAY for 98 days!!
Crikey, it’s crazy because I have a day job that’s a FULL TIME job! I’ve been snatching time here, there and everywhere at strange times of the morning, noon and night, just to get my 100-odd words down on the page. After all, 100 words is a practical and doable number of words. I can remember one day when I was about to fall off to sleep – I grabbed my phone and in a trance-like state, began dictating the words.
TWO MORE DAYS!
A REMINDER – The next #IWSGPit Twitter pitch event is January 26, 2022! That’s only three months away.
Every year there are some great success stories. You could be one of them.
See the #IWSGPit page for full details.
HAPPY IWSG DAY!
