Welcome to the first Wednesday of February.
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.

Every month, we announce a question that members can answer in their IWSG Day 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 is "What do you love about the genre you write in most often?"
Interesting question. I think I love writing for children and teens because I've never grown up. In some ways I still think like a child. Okay, don't laugh. I mean I'm trusting and love birthday parties and the simple things in life, although I have to admit the teen years were sometimes traumatic. You know, I like this guy, but he likes my friend, so what do I do? Or I'm flunking algebra. Or I need a new dress for the dance. Makes for good story ideas, right.
I'm looking forward to reading your answers to the question. And I'm writing this at midnight because I forgot about it so go easy on the misspelled words and stuff okay? Sounds like a teen and homework, no?
