IWSG Wednesday Memes




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. 

Today I'm going to chat about MEMES for Insecure Writers. 

With the exception of a few strong, healthy-minded souls most of us at different points in time face insecurity and self-doubts.  My challenge to you this month is to make yourself an Insecure Writer's meme designed especially for you to pull out whenever you need it. Got a great review? Words of encouragement? That and a picture you are fond of is all it takes.  
I don't have a special software package like Photo Shop so I use Paint.  
I used a picture from a past vacation that I felt was peaceful and serene, words from a friend and created this:
 Hope to see your meme soon.
Now here's my meme from Kensington for Love, Lattes and Danger released yesterday.

This reader needs writers - so I hope all of you can kick those pesky insecurities away. Hard. And permanently.

Elephant's Child said...

Essentilally my meme would be Readers NEED you.

Alex J. Cavanaugh said...

That's a good idea. I think I did something like that recently, for someone else. I'll post that image next week.
Hope you had a great release day!

nom nom nom on the mutant love.... How are the sales going, did we hit the bestselling charts? :)

Misha Gerrick said...

Such a sweet idea. And great advice too. :-)

Leandra Wallace said...

That's a neat thing to do w/a meme, to encourage yourself. I'll have to do that sometime!

Sandra Cox said...

You would have a great meme:)

Pat Hatt said...

A great way to help the insecurities go away from bay to bay

CJ Kennedy said...

Great idea

Stephanie Faris said...

That's awesome!!! I'm on a Mac and I still haven't figured out the equivalent of Paint on this sucker. Even the photo editor won't let me do what I need to do. I usually end up using an online tool! I'm sure there's a meme creator out there that you don't even have to download.

Julie Dao said...

What a great idea! I need to start making myself some encouraging memes! I have a Pinterest board where I pin inspiring quotes about writing. I go there when I need a boost!

Crystal Collier said...

A meme, eh? I'm hoping I'll remember that for next month. Could be fun.

This is a really good idea! Maybe I'll give it a go :)

Cherie Reich said...

Thanks, Alex.

Sandra Cox said...

I wish I could say yes.....but no:(

Sandra Cox said...

Sandra Cox said...

Here's hoping you are free of insecurities and never need one;)

Sandra Cox said...

Thanks, Pat:)

What a great idea for people who need this. I have not written a book but I congratulate you on your upcoming one. I actually received a beautiful e-mail from a client of mine which I can't share due to confidentiality but it was truly wonderful to read

Sandra Cox said...

Thanks, CJ:)

Sandra Cox said...

I need to take advantage of the online tools. I'm always scared I'll pull in a virus.

Sandra Cox said...

That's great, Julie. We need all the pump ups we can get:)

Sandra Cox said...

I'll be looking for it, Crystal:)

Sandra Cox said...

Excellent. Can't wait to see it.

Sandra Cox said...

Hi Cherie,
I'm anxious to see what you write on yours:)

Sandra Cox said...

That is such a special feeling, when someone takes the time to tell you they appreciate your work. So glad they sent you the email.

Meradeth Houston said...
