Every 1st Wednesday of the month, writers of all kinds from all over 'meet' through the "Insecure Writer's Support Group" (or #IWSG, for short), to learn, to share and to support. It is also a good sounding board for anyone who writes, insecure or not. Click the button above and go explore the site!
I was a member of IWSG before it had it's own dedicated website. I missed a few times and was *ahem* purged. I don't have a problem with that. People in the group shouldn't have to visit blogs that aren't participating. I may have joined again, and deopped it...again.
But I still subscribe to the IWSG blog. I still follow lots and lots of bloggers who are part of the group. I still write. And I'm still insecure about it, so here I am ... again.
I let my fears and insecurities get to me every once in a while, and 'knock me down'. So far, I've always gotten back up. I figure as long as I do that, I have not failed. :O)
Late in December of 2013, I joined SCADS of online Reading Challenges. Probably too many, but they all seemed so interesting. From that, I started doing a fair number of book reviews and book tours, including these two in the last couple of weeks that I have REALLY ENJOYED:
Half of what I write is on my blog. Half is for my college courses. Notice what's missing? Any work on my story or book or play ideas. The part I'm having the most trouble with right now is just starting. Does anyone know of any programs that lock your computer to other processes until you have written "x" number of words on your current WIP?
I'm starting an organization challenge next week that will hopefully help me focus more on the work at hand and less on the numerous distractions in my life.
Any tips gratefully accepted. Also occasions kicks in the...but not with steel-tipped boots. :p
