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!
June 07th Question: If you ever did stop writing, what would you replace it with? Probably more reading, which I haven’t been able to do much of anyway…
Or maybe other creative pursuits such as more crochet work (before the fingers start to get stiff LOL) or those violin lessons that I’ve been promising to sign up for. But time is so tight. (sigh) But that’s no excuse, I know…
I suppose I really need to make time for these things. Life is short and we shouldn’t put off these activities; instead we have to make time for them.
It brings me to the sad news about the passing of Chemist Ken, one of our long-standing IWSG members. What a shock. Such a great guy. A solid and decent human being. I have a fond memory of when we were numbers 16 and 17 on the IWSG sign-up list for the monthly blog hop. That was about 5 years ago. (He has always been one step behind me on the list)
He joked that he was eyeing the number 16 spot. At that time, I had joked that, if Alex would allow it, we could swop places on the list.
A wonderful human being. May his soul rest in peace.
Keep on writing my fellow IWSG’ers.
Happy IWSG Day!
