IWSG Support Day



The first Wednesday of every month is officially Insecure Writer’s Support Group day. Members post about their doubts and fears, discuss struggles and triumphs, and offer words of encouragement to others who are struggling.

FYI: The IWSG monthly question can be found under the IWSG Sign-up tab on the Insecure Writer's Support Group Blog.


July 3 question - What are your ultimate writing goals, and how have they changed over time (if at all)?

My goals are to continually improve my craft, grow my readership and at some point in my lifetime write a bestseller. Piece of cake, right? Choke. Choke. Hack. Hack (No pun intended).

Word for the day: Support.

  18. I hope that you do write a best-seller someday; in fact, I hope that you have more than one. :) I'd like that for myself too, and I have to admit that one reason for it is because then maybe the Rock Bottom Remainders, the band made up of famous writers like Dave Barry and Amy Tan, will let me sing with them sometime. Also, I'd really like to talk to them about writing.
