Insecure Writer's Support Group

Woohoo! I just joined the Insecure Writer's Support Group, and guess what!

Many of the members are writers I know from my early blogging days. The IWSG is headed by Alex Cavanaugh. Hi Alex! I also see Roland Yeomans, Karen, Hart, Lynda, Julie, Heather, Stephen, Denise C., Arlee/Lee, Michael, Jemi, Angela, and Denise Y. And those are just the names I recognized at first glance.


So that's where all my "old" friends ended up.

I am ashiver with excitement, looking forward to getting reacquainted. AND meeting the other two hundred writers.

So what's it all about, Alfie? Are you a writer, thinking the IWSG might be right for you?

I borrowed this from the IWSG website:

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 - 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! If it links to Google+, be sure your blog is listed there. Otherwise, when you leave a comment, people can't find you to comment back.

Let’s rock the neurotic writing world!

Our Twitter handle is @TheIWSG and hashtag is #IWSG

Every month, we announce a question that members can answer in their IWSG post. These questions may prompt you to share advice, insight, a personal experience or story. Include your answer to the question in your IWSG post or let it inspire your post if you are struggling with something to say. 

Remember, the question is optional! 

February 7 question - What do you love about the genre you write in most often?

The awesome co-hosts for the February 7 posting of the IWSG are Stephen Tremp, Pat Garcia,Angela Wooldridge, Victoria Marie Lees, and Madeline Mora-Summonte!

So. There you have it. I joined an online writer's group. And am mondo excited.

Happy Friday, y'all!
