THE INSECURE WRITER'S SUPPORT GROUP OCTOBER


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. co-hosts for the October 7 posting of the IWSG are Jemima Pett, Beth Camp, Beverly Stowe McClure, and Gwen Gardner! 


 Our Twitter is @TheIWSG and hashtag #IWSG. 


 The question for October is: When you think of the term working writer, what does that look like to you? What do you think it is supposed to look like? Do you see yourself as a working writer or aspiring or hobbyist, and if the latter two, what does that look like? 


 To answer. Oh my. Ii don't know. I guess a working writer to me is someone that makes writing their job.Like having a set time to write each day, like in going to the office or to school. I see myself as a working writer, sort of. I don't have a strict schedule but try to write most every day, even if it's only one page. Being retired gives me the extra time. 


 How about you? Are you a working writer or more like an aspiring or hobbyist writer or a little of all three? Be sure to sign up for the IWSG Newsletter for the latest information for writers. It goes out the last Wednesday of the month, which also serves to remind you of the upcoming blog posting day. For more information, please see the IWSG Privacy Policy. Looking forwad to your answers.


Thanks for stopping by.


 Happy Reading.
