Insecure Writer’s Support Group (IWSG)

About the Insecure Writer’s Support Group (IWSG)

There are a couple of major tasks that a writer needs to do. First and foremost, of course, is to write. And the second is to be published.

I ran into the Insecure Writer’s Support Group (IWSG) during my research effort and was initially amused by the name. That amusement quickly faded as delved into more and more content. Writers are real people too! I’m hoping that I have the opportunity to become fully engaged and able to actively participate and contribute to this writer community.

Each month questions or suggestions are posed to the community of which they have the opportunity to opine and offer up how they deal with the challenge, the problem, and/or address the suggestion however they can. Writers then can include their blog address to be included in the blog hop. Insecure Writer’s Support Group Members are, of course, invited to visit numerous blogs and to freely provide feedback and comments. Non-members are always welcome to comment as well.
