Insecure Writers support group
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.
Be sure to link to this page and display the badge in your post.
Let’s rock the neurotic writing world!
Our Twitter hashtag is #IWSG
Wednesday is also the day that I like to share writing, publishing and marketing information that I have learned on my journey to becoming a full time writer.
Each month we are presented with a question. The first question of this brand new year is:
What writing rule do you wish you’d never heard? For me it has to be the rule that first drafts are supposed to be awful. I have such a hard time sitting down and writing something from start to finish. I struggle with not editing as I write. It is a struggle but I will get there. It is one of my writing goals this year.
I don’t do resolutions. Goals work better for me. I accomplished most of my 2016 writing goals but not all of them. The few I haven’t accomplished are wreaking havoc with my #1 goal to stay positive no matter what.
The last few years I chose a word of the year. For 2017 I chose two phrases. Always have something to look forward to and Always be expecting something wonderful to happen. I haven’t quite completed my writing goals for the New Year. There is so much I want to do, too much. First things first, Realize Your Writing Dreams, the blog to book I wanted to have finished in November will be finished this month. I cannot wait to get to the editing phase. That’s what I will be doing for the next 27-days.
What are you working on? Do you have writing goals for 2017?
Happy New Year and Happy Writing,
