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
Our Twitter hashtag is #IWSG
The awesome co-hosts for the April 6 posting of the IWSG will be Megan Morgan, Chris Votey, Viola Fury, Christine Rains, Madeline Mora-Summonte, L.G. Keltner, Rachna Chhabria, and Patricia Lynne!
For my post today, I'm trying to NOT let myself give in to the doubts invading the fringes of my mind. I've been keeping them at bay with positive thoughts that patience in this writing game is what will work and that this is a marathon, not a sprint.
Yet I feel like a skilled warrior running uphill like in The Last Samurai movie facing the brutality of a Gatling gun.
To keep from feeling...
Evidently wrong about this dream
I'm trying to force my attention away from the soul-sucking low-to-no sales and pouring myself into another project. And praying helps with my sanity as well.
What do you do to keep your sanity when doubt seeks to overwhelm you?
