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 4 posting of the IWSG are Jemi Fraser, Kim Lajevardi, L.G Keltner, Tyrean Martinson, and Rachna Chhabria!
November 4 optional question - Albert Camus once said, “The purpose of a writer is to keep civilization from destroying itself.” Flannery O’Conner said, “I write to discover what I know.” Authors across time and distance have had many reasons to write. Why do you write what you write?
It's my turn to post on the main blog and I'm late! I even have my calendar set to send me a reminder and I still managed to screw it up!
But...I'm here now and I'd like to talk about something that's really important to writers...
There are a few types of writers.
Those that eat snacks while they write.
Those that don't eat snacks while they write.
Those that eat snacks as a reward system.
Those that eat snacks when they can't write.
Those that forget to eat all together.
What type am I? All of the above. Except that last one. I don't think I've ever forgotten to eat. :)
If you're wondering why beverages were left out of this post, its only because beverages are imperative to writers.
So, do you have a writer snack type? What's a favorite snack? Do you need a snack intervention?
