IWSG Wednesday


Insecure Writer’s Support Group—A database resource site and support group for writers and authors. Featuring weekly guests and tips, a monthly blogfest gathering, a Facebook group, a book club, and thousands of links–all to benefit writers! #IWSG

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 help 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!
Be sure to link to this page and display the badge in your post. And please be sure your avatar links back to your blog!  
Our Twitter handle is @TheIWSG and hashtag is #IWSG. 

The awesome co-hosts for the November 2 posting of the IWSG are Diedre Knight, Douglas Thomas Greening, Nick Wilford, and Diane Burton!   Thanks folks!

November 2's optional question - November is National Novel Writing Month. Have you ever participated? If not, why not?

Speaking of here to join!
National Novel Writing Month started in 1999 as a challenge to writers to get busy. During November, writers are challenged to write 50,000 words of a novel in thirty days. Last year, 427,653 writers officially joined the challenge! And that's not counting the number of people who attempt the challenge unofficially. 

Write on.

I'm slowly making my way around the IWSG First Wednesday posts. So far I've read that some writers have participated in NANO a lot while others haven't sign up once. Good question.

Natalie Aguirre said...

I agree with Lee. It's a good question and interesting to read everyone's responses.

Alex J. Cavanaugh said...

This has been a good question for people to answer this month.

Hi Sandra - I've never done NaNo - but admire all authors who participate ... it certainly helps some people master their fear of writing - cheers Hilary

I barely get in a few words a day much less doing the sprint. But kudos to those who can!
