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.
April 7th's question, if you'd like to answer it, is: Are you a risk-taker when writing? Do you try something radically different in style/POV/etc. or add controversial topics to your work?
I don't think I am a risk-taker nor have I tried anything radically different. Although, some readers have taken offense to my Christian based series. Wickedly It Begins. Wickedly They Come. Wickedly They Dream. Some reviewers write, It was a good story, but they didn't care for the religious aspects. I had one reviewer that said, "I'm an atheist, and the story had too much Christianity in it." LOL. On Amazon it clearly states these books are Christian/Spiritual/Religious Fantasy. Religion can be quite controversial.
Do you believe in Writer's Block? Because that's where I am right now. I told myself, I just need a break. Forget about writing for a while. What do you do for Writer's Block?
