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.

I’ve missed the blogging and writing community. Everyone has been so embroiled in election negativity. I miss the positive, friendly, informative posts I got used to, expected and looked forward to from my writer friends. Hopefully we are close to the end of all the negativity and the spirit of the holidays will fill us all and inspire us to reach out and love and respect each other again.

Meet the Author
I met Adela in a Facebook group, The Women of Midlife and finally in person at the BAM conference and she is lovely. I enjoy her blogs and I really enjoyed reading The Ship of Pearl. I highly recommend it and was happy to hear she is donating a portion of proceeds to the homeless and the hungry.

When writing my first book I used a PC. We kept that computer in one of our extra bedrooms. Back then I had a writing schedule and I didn’t have any trouble sticking with it. I would get up an hour earlier each morning, make a cup of tea and I would sit down and write for an hour before going to work. I would spend another hour, writing at night. If there were no family events to attend, Saturdays were dedicated to writing.
Wednesday is the day I share what I have learned on my writing journey and on 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.

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.
