#IWSG


Join Alex J. Cavanaugh and a multitude of writer's in this monthly hop to help support one another!
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!

The awesome co-hosts for the the August 5 posting of the IWSG will be Nancy Gideon, Bob R Milne, Doreen McGettigan, Chrys Fey, Bish Denham, and Pat Garcia! 


This month is a dose of 

Perseverance and Encouragement!

In a million years, I never thought I'd be an author!

 I was ready to throw in the towel and give up...

 Take one step at a time, even though they seem impossibly huge...


Not only in writing, but perseverance in our day to day lives...



Hope you're all feeling encouraged!

  4. I love the quote from Louise Brown. It's hard to be true to yourself when so many are just going after the money - and some even succeeding. But being happy is what it's all about, and that's not necessarily dependent on money.

  6. Great job! I think we all need encouragement from time to time. I had a client insult my writing talent last week..since then, I've had two separate clients compliment it, so I don't know why the insult sticks harder. We need to learn to shut out those negative voices and focus on the good!

    1. Why do the insults & bad reviews hurt more than the hundred of good reviews and compliments?

  12. Write about what you believe in is a big one. You're going to get really familiar with that novel through edits, so you better like it! :)

    Here is my August IWSG post. It's the second post on my blog today because my Pitch Wars mentor bio needs to stay at the top. Thanks!
