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 assistance 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.
Sadly, I’m not referring to some circus gig on the side—I’m talking about the act of balancing a writing career with everything else in life. I wanted to jump back into A-Z this year—I really did—but it’s all I can do to keep up with IWSG anymore. I hit my head in the middle of February, and the resultant injury kept me off my game for a month or so. Now I’m scrambling to catch up.
That’s why I’ll be cheering you all on from the sidelines this month. Picture me as the person passing out bottles of water along the marathon route. You can do it!
Meanwhile, I’ll be powering through my disaster WIP. I’m (cautiously) excited about this one—so much so, in fact, that I’m already working on the cover and promotional materials. Is that putting the cart before the horse? Maybe! But that’s how I roll these days... *puts on sunglasses*
P.S. My assistant, Tucker, says hi!
