Another month has flown by and it's time for the writer's in the Insecure Writer's Support Group to post about our insecurities.
In the words of our fearless leader, Alex Cavanaugh...
When posting for IWSG day, remember to stay on topic – either post about your insecurities, struggles, or challenges or post something of encouragement for other writers. Most important – be sure to visit other IWSG members! This day is about coming together for support and encouragement.
We are still trying to get the IWSG site listed as one of Writers’ Digest’s Top 100 Best Websites for Writers! Please email them at firstname.lastname@example.org, subject line 101 Websites, and suggest the IWSG http://www.insecurewriterssupportgroup.com/
Don’t forget we have a Facebook group - https://www.facebook.com/groups/IWSG13/
The co-hosts for November are:
Tyrean Martinson http://tyreanswritingspot.blogspot.com/
Karen Walker http://karenfollowingthewhispers.blogspot.com/
Denise Covey http://dencovey.blogspot.com/
Stephen Tremp http://authorstephentremp.blogspot.com/
We need co-hosts for December 2 and January 6! If you can co-host, please let me know.
Please visit fellow #IWSG members today!
Thanks and let’s rock it on November 4!
Today, I'd like to chat offering words of encouragement. I know I have allowed myself one too many times to second guess my path of writing when I don't get a good old, "way to go!" from someone that is riding the roller coaster ride of writing and publishing.
Something as simple as saying...
"I'm here for you"
"I like how you are developing this scene, may I offer a suggestion"
will often change a person's self-doubt to a positive. Try it, today and everyday and brighten someone's day!
Thanks for visiting and commenting. You have certainly brightened my day!
