September Insecure Writer's Support Group

This is the first Wednesday in September and you know what that means!



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!

Let’s rock the neurotic writing world!

Our Twitter is @TheIWSG and hashtag #IWSG.

Ninja Alex J. Cavanaugh is the founder of the IWSG

His awesome co-hosts for the September 4 posting of the IWSG are Gwen Gardner,Doreen McGettigan, Tyrean Martinson, Chemist Ken, and Cathrina Constantiner!


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!!!

September 4 question:

If you could pick one place in the wold to sit and write your next story, where would it be and why?

Gee, I don't know. I'm pretty happy with where I write now, usually on the dining table. I have a desk in my "writing room" a bedroom we don't use. But I like the view from the dining room. I can look out the window and watch the humming birds and others. The dog also looks at me through the window when he's outside.

In the evenings I usually take my laptop to the den where I can write  and watch TV. The cats sometimes crawl onto my lap and nap. But I haven't answered the question.

For my next story, I think I'll take my laptop to the dining table and write it there. I'm happy with doing it there now. Why should I change.? No other place in the world will make my story better.

How about you?


Happy Writing.

    1. Thanks, lost. I think it's best to write wherever a person is comfortable. The dining room seems to be popular. Thank you for stopping by.

    1. Gee, Yvonne. I thought I answered this yesterday. I must be losing my mind. Or it's already gone. Taking your laptop on travels with you is a splendid idea. Always be prepared for those ideas that appear when you least expect them. Have a lovely rest of the day.

  4. That dining room table sounds perfect. We don't really need exotic places, do we? Those are in our heads.

    1. You're absolutely right, Lee. In fact, if I was in an exotic place I'd probably be distracted by the view and get no writing done. I'm just a simple girl.

  5. That sounds lovely. There are some stories that I write at my dining room table, too. :)

    1. You too, Chrys. The dining room table looks like a popular spot. Thanks for stopping by. Happy Writing.

  6. Your point of view is so humbling and I agree 100%. No particular place in the world will make your writing better.

    1. Ah, thank you, Astrid. Glad you agree. Our writing is inside us. We do the best we can. Thanks for stopping by. Happy Writing.

  7. I could have an office too but I like to write at my dining room table, in my kitchen, or in front of the TV.

    1. Yea! Another dining room writer. There are quite a few of us, it seems. TV's a good spot too. Haven't tried the kitchen. Maybe I will. Thanks for stopping by. Happy Writing.

  8. I like to write at home, too. I never seem to get anything done in other places!

    1. I agree, Sarah. If you're like me, I'm easily distracted, so need to be at home where everything is familiar. Thanks for stopping by. Happy Writing.

  9. Sure sounds like you got the perfect spot at home indeed.

    1. I think so, Pat. I prefer familiar places. Somewhere new would distract me too much. Thanks for stopping by.

  10. I'm a dining room writer too! I have an entire writing office downstairs, but then I always feel like I'm secluding myself from the world. But maybe I'd get more writing done if I tried it. Enjoy your window and dog!

    1. All right! Another one, T. We seem to be a majority. I don't work in my writing room much because it's too lonesome. The dining room is more in the open and the cats are in there sometimes. The window is a plus too. Thanks for stopping by. Happy Writing.

  11. That's why I like moving to our dining room - so I can watch the birdies, including hummingbirds. It's amazing when they stop for a moment like that, isn't it?

    1. Oh, so you have birdies too, Diane. They are so beautiful. The hummers will be leaving soon, and I'll miss them. Yes, they sometimes fight over the feeder too. They love to eat. Thanks for stopping by.

  12. I need the privacy of my room, but would like to do a writing retreat some day somewhere else. Happy IWSG! Juneta @ Writer's Gambit

    1. I know what you mean, Juneta. I like privacy too. I'm easily distracted. Happy IWSG to you. Thanks for stopping by.

  13. Terrific advice, and I so agree. An ocean front beach house with a view of sand and surf wouldn't be so bad either:)

    1. The beach house would be nice, Karin. I'd probably get side tracked, though.

  14. With a little help from my portable lap desk I can take my laptop with me to the living room couch or kitchen table to write. Or to my bed, but it's been ages since I've written in bed. Now, reading in my bed I do almost every night.

    1. That is convenient, Lidy. A good reason to have a laptop. I read in bed, too.
