Happy Anniversary IWSG


Greetings everyone.

Since we have a twelve year anniversary coming up, I'd like to chat a little bit about our group and the man who founded it.

About Alex:

Alex Cavanaugh is a writer and promoter. He works in web design and graphics, and he plays guitar in a Christian band. A fan of all things science fiction, his interests range from books and movies to music and games. 

About the IWSG:

The Insecure Writer's Support Group is a safe haven for insecure writers of all kinds. 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. The first Wednesday of every month is officially Insecure Writer's Support Group day. Writer's post their thoughts on their own blog, talk about their doubts and the fears they have conquered, discuss their struggles and triumphs, offer a word of encouragement for others who are struggling, visit others in the group and connect with fellow writers--aim for a dozen new people each time.

Sound like  a group you'd be interested in joining?

Here's our webiste: Insecure Writer's Support Group (insecurewriterssupportgroup.com)

Our twitter handle: @THEIWSG

Our hash tag: #IWSG

And last but not least,  "Thanks, Alex. We appreciate ya.  Wishing you an early Happy Anniversary."

Happy Birthday IWSG and I dedicate a poem to you (and my late sister) - appropriately entitled "Worry Beads"...

Isn't it amazing what followed your casual comment? Something struck a cord and here we are today. Twelve years of offering positive support to all writers.

What would happen if more of us listened to our inner guide?

Thank you, Alex and those behind the scene (past and present) for making this possible. Happy 12th anniversary.

Cheers @ Lynn La Vita

Alex - When I try and go to http://www.alexjcavanaugh.com/, McAfee and Malwarebytes both tell me "Website blocked due to trojan". Is anyone else having this problem?
