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 01st Question: Have you ever read a line in a novel or a clever plot twist that caused you to have author envy?
It happens all the time. I love beautiful sentences and always wonder what went through the author’s mind when they wrote that particular sentence? It makes me think of the unforgettable opening lines of certain novels, like 1984 and Anna Karenina. Both perfect and beautiful, though so different.
In other news, I’m still battling the unbearable humidity but hopefully this is the beginning of the end… a brief respite from the heat would really help… I look forward to some cooler days as we move into autumn.
Happy IWSG Day!
