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!Posting: 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! Be sure to link to this page and display the badge in your post.Let’s rock the neurotic writing world!Our Twitter handle is @TheIWSG and hashtag is #IWSG
My advice to anyone feeling held back by their flaws is this: Confront them head on. Over-design a character, if you’re used to under-designing them. Overthink the world they live in, if you’re used to winging it on world building. Study plot-structures. Study the way you write, and then study ways to make it better. Don’t just give up.
