Our purpose: to share and encourage. Writers can express doubts or concerns without feeling foolish or weak. Writers can also give assistance, guidance, and motivation. Together, we're stronger.
Many thanks to our found Alex J. Cavanaugh and our co-hosts today Sarah Foster, Natalie Aguirre, Lee Lowery, and Rachna Chhabria!
HOW LONG DO YOU SHELVE YOUR FIRST DRAFT?
OPTIONAL QUESTION: For how long do you shelve your first draft, before reading it and re-drafting? Is this dependent on your writing experience and the number of stories/books under your belt?
A GOOD TEAM ALWAYS HAS YOUR BACK
One of the reasons I love IWSG: a good team always has your back.
Case in point: Today, somehow, I missed my opportunity to post here in the early hours of the day. My schedule was packed. I discovered an email a few minutes ago, and thanks to the awesome team of IWSG admins, I am posting right now. It's not my finest hour, but the team had my back. I've seen this time and time again among the members of the admin team, and among the ranks of IWSG writers. It is one of the reasons I am glad to be a part of this group.
Keep on encouraging one another!
