Insecure Writer's Support Group Post Day and Second Facebook Group!

It’s time for another group posting of the Insecure Writer’s Support Group! Time to release our fears to the world – or offer encouragement to those who are feeling neurotic. If you’d like to join us, click on the tab above and sign up. We post the first Wednesday of every month. I encourage everyone to visit at least a dozen new blogs and leave a comment. Your words might be the encouragement someone needs.

The awesome co-hosts for the November 5 posting of the IWSG are LG Keltner, Donna Hole, Lisa Buie-Collard and SL Hennessy!

The IWSG Facebook group continues to grow, with over 1,500 members now.

And we’ve expanded with a second group on Facebook – the IWSG Critique Circle!


The aim of that group is to put writers who want to exchange critiques and find beta readers in touch with each other. And of course, there's the support and encouragement with the manuscripts. Many writers have already connected, so check it out!

We are just a month away from releasing the IWSG Guide to Publishing and Beyond. After working on organizing and editing, we can tell you right now – this book is going to rock!

Great idea with the second fb group and I can't wait to see the guide book come out. You all rock! Will the book be available in physical print?

Wow! A second Facebook group? That's wonderful! Yay to IWSG!

Bob R Milne said...

It sounds funny, but between the new book and the second Facebook group, it's a great time to be an insecure writer. :)

Alex J. Cavanaugh said...

Well said, Bob!

Hey again, Alex! I'm really excited about the eAnthology coming out next month. And I'm thankful for all the hard work people are putting into it to make it happen! I've got to get my Facebook act together. I need a clone! LOL! Have a good one!

Patricia Lynne said...

I joined the second FB group, but haven't gotten a chance to post there.
I'm excited about the anthology. Can't wait to get my hands on a copy and read all the entries.

Debra McKellan said...

Yay, another FB group! I'm terrible at even looking at my FB, though. Eek.

Joylene Nowell Butler said...

I love the idea of a critique circle! Can't wait.

Dean K Miller said...

I love this "place." So glad I found IWSG and I'll be bopping on over to the new facebook page. And don't get me started about the Anthology!

Thanks to all who make this happen.

Love the sound of the new FB group, but my life is unravelling... or has it caught up with me like a tidal wave?

Missed the Wednesday post, failing at NaNoWriMo, spasms more frequent, and not enough energy or time.

However, good luck to all you other great writers.

Pat Hatt said...

A great idea indeed

J Q Rose said...

So looking forward to the ebook coming out in Dec! Thanks so much for putting this together. I too wondered who would want to read the tips if the writers ar insecure?? LOL...Nov 5 came and went too quickly for me, but I'll be hopping back on again in Dec!! It's on my calendar!!

Toinette Thomas said...

Wow, this group never ceases to amaze me. You, we, all do so much to help and support one another.
