I’ve been a pretty inconsistent (insecure) writer.
At times I’ve felt burnt out with blogging and missed the IWSG post, at others been felled by life. Last month I missed the post cos I forgot! Alex has been kind enough to keep me on the list despite my irregularity and for that I’m grateful.
I think blogging brings out the best in writers– we become a sympathetic, helpful community (which sometimes doesn’t happen in real life.) IWSG has become a safe place for blogger-writers on the web, and I personally have learned a lot from some of the posts I’ve read, be it writing advice or publishing tips.
Can’t believe IWSG is 2 years old today! Kudos to Alex and the bloggers who have hosted the group each month– it isn’t easy.
I hope to be more regular from now on, schedule my IWSG drafts so I don’t miss out.
This month I’ve found the Muse elusive, and have had to bring myself out of negative swirls of vicious self-loathing– so I find some of the IWSG posts just what I needed! Thank you to the bloggers on this group who encourage those like me who find it hard going, this life as a writer.
Here’s to many more years of the Insecure Writers’ Support Group!
