IWSG APRIL


 It’s time for another group posting of the Insecure Writer’s Support Group! Time to release our fears to the world – or offer encouragement to those who are feeling neurotic. If you’d like to join us, click on the tab above and sign up. We post the first Wednesday of every month. I encourage everyone to visit at least a dozen new blogs and leave a comment. Your words might be the encouragement someone needs.



The awesome co-hosts for the April 7 posting of the IWSG are PK Hrezo, SE White, Lisa Buie Collard, and Diane Burton!

April 7 question - Are you a risk-taker when writing? Do you try something radically different in style/POV/etc. or add controversial topics to your work?

Me? A risk taker in writing? Most of the time no. Since I write for children and teens I write about things that pertain to themtheir lives. Latrly though, seeig what's going on in the lives of young people I'm considering something different. Not sure yet. We'll see.

How about you? Have a great day.

    1. Yeah, no one never knows what will happen when you write your thoughts and ideas, Alex. Such fun.

  4. Nope, I am not much of a risk taker in writing either though I also have a new idea knocking which would be far different. We shall see.

    1. I'm curious too, Chrys. It will surprise me more than anyone cause at the momant it's pretty vague. My brain's asleep I think.

  7. I am struggling with being more of a risk-taker, especially when truth or justice requires it. Well, I probably do it in those cases but otherwise, I'm pretty refined.

    1. There are times it may be necessary, Jacqui. Teens still need guidance even if they may think they don't. I bet your decisions are good. It's tough, sometimes.

  8. This past year has thrown a big wrench in young people's lives and opened up some sad scenarios they now face.

    1. Sadly you're right, Diane. When I was a teen millions of years ago, life was much simpler. Teens know stuff today I'd never heard of when I was young. Pray.

  9. Never know what can crop up, especially after this past year, to give an idea.

    1. So true. Pat. I'm thankful I'm retired from teacing and also thankful my boys are grown and have families so they can help them with the problems, if that makes sense.

  10. I would say the only risks I take in writing are trying different genres. Hmm. I guess that is pretty risky, as I don't get known for any one thing. :-)

    1. Yes, and sometimes a change for a while helps us clear our thoughts, I think, Elizabeth. Thanks for stopping by.

  11. I'm not a risk taker either, though I may try to write in different genres. I'm curious about your idea.

    1. I think writing in different genres is fun, Natalie, and also gives us ideas about our other writing, if that makes sene.

  12. As an aspiring writer, I suppose I'm a risk taker, because there's no safe way for me to write.
