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 - and return comments. This group is all about connecting!
Our Twitter handle is @TheIWSG and hashtag is #IWSG
The awesome co-hosts for the March 7 posting of the IWSG are Mary Aalgaard, Bish Denham, Jennifer Hawes, Diane Burton, and Gwen Gardner!
Some important things I’ve learned on day 66 of my #100words100days challenge
Consistency is king. When you show up, the words also show up. Success is the sum of small efforts, repeated day in and day out.
Accountability is a key factor in getting those words on paper. Having a partner or group where you can post/share a daily/weekly word count really helps.
Prompt writing in small bursts works for me. Find out what works for you and then use it to your advantage.
You are capable of much more. Push yourself beyond that comfort zone because that’s how we grow!
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.
March 07th optional question: How do you celebrate when you achieve a writing goal/finish a story?
I’m on day 66 of my #100words100days challenge. Any ideas how I should celebrate at the end?
Join as you can.
Share and Encourage.
Spread the word.
