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!
December 01st Question: In your writing, what stresses you the most? What delights you?
I think I worry most about whether I should stick to fiction or non-fiction.
I really enjoy creative non-fiction but at the same time I’m a flash fiction junkie!
So while I write both fiction and non-fiction, and I give time and energy to both styles, should I concentrate on one? Since the acceptance and publication of my non-fiction article in a well-respected educational magazine (860 affiliated schools were invited to submit articles: CLICK HERE TO READ MY ARTICLE) I’m thinking that this is an indication that I need to pursue the non-fiction writing…
What delights me? I love writing short fiction! It’s always a delightful experience.

Today was the official end of year for our learners. We had the final grade 8-11 Assembly and Prize-giving Ceremony, then handed out final reports.
I haven’t written much since the 100daysX100words challenge which ended on October 08th because I moved straight from that challenge into final preparations for examinations at school.
All done and dusted.
I’m now dead tired.
Thank you to everybody for visiting today.
I’ll catch up with all who visited my blog when I’m officially on holiday from next week!
Happy IWSG Day!!
