Insecure Writer's Support Group Post Day!

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.

Our awesome co-hosts today are Sandra Hoover, Mark Koopmans, Doreen McGettigan, Megan Morgan, and Melodie Campbell!

Thanks again to everyone who entered the IWSG Anthology Contest! There were some amazing stories in the thirty-plus submissions. Only ten will go into the book, though. Be watching January 6, 2016 when we announce the winners.

Be sure to say a special thanks to the admins who keep this site and the Facebook Group going strong:
Lynda Young, Michelle Wallace, Susan Gourley/Kelley, L. Diane Wolfe, Joy Campbell, and Joylene Nowell Butler.

We’ve got some great stuff in store for next year, including more top-notch guests and another contest. As always, we are here to serve you. Is there a specific area where you need help or a topic that we can cover to make your journey easier?

I'm looking forward to what the next year will bring, and I can't wait to read the anthology when it comes out! There are bound to be some amazing stories in there!

It was hard picking just the top stories for the anthology.

Bob R Milne said...

Wow, another year gone, eh? Definitely ending 2015 with some insecurities, but here's hoping my January post will be a positive one.

Michelle Wallace said...

I'm excited and honored to be a part of everything.
Getting the opportunity to read all the IWSG Anthology entries was a wonderful experience. So many fabulous writers in our community...

Hey, Alex, *waves* I plan on joining the first of the year (finally). I have received so much writerly help from the posts over here. (Thankful for my buddy's Michelle's reminders to get by here.) The anthology was something I looked forward to from the time I heard about the contest. Just more helpful writing posts. A lot of characterization posts (the bane of my existence). Oh, and a V-neck IWSG T would be nice. Thank you, IWSG for all your help in my writing world.
