To Share and Encourage…

It’s the first Wednesday of the month and that means it’s time for the monthly meeting of the 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.

#WritingWednesday/Press Releases…

WritingWednesday

Wednesday is the day I share what I have learned on my journey to publication, marketing and publishing again. If you have any questions please feel free to leave them in the comments and I will do my best to answer them. If you have any tips please share them with us…

Public Relations/ Press Releases

Just when you thought writing the book was the hard part you were told you had to write a synopsis, then an outline, a proposal and the hardest of all a query letter. You finish all of those and breathe a big sigh of release only to find out you need to write marketing, advertising and PR plans and those include writing press releases and media pitches.

Book Proposals…

Writing Wednesday On Wednesdays I like to share bits of information that I picked up on my journey to publication and preparing to be published again. The kind of information I wish someone shared with me.

Book Proposals

I like to write from an outline and once I’m a few thousand words into my manuscript I start thinking about the proposal. Your proposal is actually a business plan for your book.

Know What You Write…

Writing Wednesday

Typewriter Pink

On Wednesday’s I like to share information I picked up on my path to publishing, marketing and preparing to publish again. Information that I wish someone would have shared with me, back then.

Research

Everything you write whether it’s an article, blog post or a book it needs to be researched. I start a file for research as soon as I have an idea for a story. Getting your facts straight, whether your work is fiction or nonfiction will make your story believable and increase your credibility as a writer.

Conflict…

On Wednesdays I like to share information, the kind of stuff I wish someone would have shared with me when I started on my writing, publishing and marketing journey. Writer Wednesday

Typewriter Pink

Writing Conflict I have always had trouble writing conflict, the fiction type that is. My first 3 books are nonfiction and based on conflict so I only had to write what happened, in my own words.

Making conflict up from scratch is a whole different matter. I don’t like conflict at all and have spent my life trying to avoid it but to tell a good story conflict is an absolute necessity. Even worse it needs to happen in every scene. Conflict is what moves the story forward.
