The Insecure Writer's Support Group Post Day - #IWSGPit, Anthology Contest, WEP, Instagram

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 co-hosts for the June 5 posting of the IWSG are Diane Burton, Kim Lajevardi, Sylvia Ney, Sarah Foster, Jennifer Hawes, and Madeline Mora-Summonte!

June 5 question:
Of all the genres you read and write, which is your favorite to write in and why?

The Insecure Writer’s Support Group Anthology Contest opened last month – only three more months to enter.
Middle grade historical – adventure/ fantasy.
Theme - voyagers.
See the site for full details on how to submit.

Our #IWSGPit Twitter pitch event will be January 15, 2020. Be sure to follow us on Twitter.

Over at the IWSG Instagram, we have prompts set for the month.

The WEP challenge for this month – caged bird. There are also some new rules in place – visit the site for full info.

What upcoming event excites you? What's your favorite genre to write?

Karen Lynn said...

I don't know if I'll have anything to pitch, but I'm looking forward to cheering everybody on in #IWSGpit. It's great to see people I know have been working for a long, long time get some recognition.

Liza said...

Thank you for the updates. Hmm. Twitter pitch. January will be here before we know it!

Susan Gourley/Kelley said...

I hope I have my next fantasy novel ready for the January twitter pitch.

Roland Clarke said...

IWSG always encourages me to push on. Now reading my first MG novel for decades - see what you are doing to me. Still wondering if adventure/fantasy means: adventure OR fantasy; adventure & fantasy; or something else. Intrigued and challenged.

Learning to proofread your work yourself is a must-have skill. But, it always helps to have a second pair of eyes review your work to make sure you haven't missed embarassing typos, or grammatical and syntactical errors. I'd suggest for this. It also saves you a lot of time to have your work formatted according to the right style. Saves you a lot of time and allows you to focus on your work.

I agree that a second pair of eyes is absolutely essential to avoid rejections. Through I was able to get top class editing and proofreading, manuscript critique. They also write excellent author profiles and book synopsis, so pretty much the entire package.

Lots going on. I'd be happy just to advance my new novel a few more pages each day.

Kalpana said...

IWSG always makes my blood tingle and my typing fingers itch to begin writing again (in this case) or to dive even deeper into the story.

Dihiwi said...

Glad to be back with IWSG! I'm trying to write more on my blog which hopefully will spur my creative effort on my mystery cozy fiction novel. Anyone else writing mystery fiction?
