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.
The awesome co-hosts for the January posting of the IWSG are: Patricia Lynne, Lisa Buie-Collard, Kim Lajevardi, and Fundy Blue!
Don’t forget to visit them and thank them for co-hosting!
Our Twitter handle is @TheIWSG and hashtag is #IWSG.
Sorry about the late post. I had blog problems and my web host was away on holiday so there was nothing I could really do about it. On top of this, my internet line is down and so I’m posting from my i-Pad (second time) so please excuse any formatting and other glitches!! I DON’T like posting from the i-Pad… the screen is too small PLUS it’s not the same as the desk top. The buttons etcetera are in a different place and with the new WordPress features, (block verses classic editor mode…aaaargh! Who cares?? I just want to post as normal), it’s been a nightmare trying to figure this out! I’m STILL looking for the font button!
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!
JANUARY 02nd QUESTION: What are your favorite and least favorite questions people ask you about your writing? I don’t really encourage conversation about my writing. I first try to gauge whether the interest is genuine or a pretense, then I respond accordingly. Maybe it’s unfair of me to think this way, but nothing annoys me more than people who have a poor or uninformed point of view about writers and the writing process.
Oh well, it is what it is… I suppose.
I’m revving up for the 2019 WEP+IWSG challenge. I had a great run last year. Check my side bar to see the badges. Thank you to the WEP team for all the hard work they put in to make this a success!
I think this is enough trauma for one day. Hopefully the Internet line will be up and running soon. I’ll be visiting some blogs over the next few days. HAPPY NEW YEAR TO EVERYBODY!!
