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 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 - and return comments. This group is all about connecting!
Let’s rock the neurotic writing world!
Our Twitter handle is @TheIWSG and hashtag is #IWSG.
Alex's awesome co-hosts are Sarah - The Faux Fountain Pen Jacqui Murray, Chemist Ken, Victoria Marie Lees, Natalie Aguirre, and JQ Rose!
March 3 question - Everyone has a favorite genre or genres to write. But what about your reading preferences? Do you read widely or only within the genre(s) you create stories for? What motivates your reading choice?
I write YA novels that have market appeal for both young adults and adults. Whatever a writer likes to pen, I believe it is essential they read, read, read books of their genre. But, I also believe in being well rounded and a writer should read many genres.
With that said, I love YA reads and that is my first go to. And, I don't stick primarily with YA, I enjoy a gambit of genres.
When I am writing or when I am reading, a book helps me to escape reality.
Reading tickles a persons imagination. A must for writer's.
Reading hones a writer's craft.
During the day, I lack the precious time to read, so my current read is always next to my bed. At night when I settle comfortably beneath my blankets, I take a moment to crack a book and read.
What are you reading?
