The Insecure Writer's Support Group is where writers of all levels, beginning or advanced, share their insecurities and receive advice and encouragement.
We post on the first Wednesday of every month.

Guess who's taking their turn co-hosting?
Thanks to Alex Cavanaugh for hosting this event every month.
Thanks to my fellow co-hosts this month:
Writers really put a lot of pressure on themselves. Not just the traditionally published, either. Every self-publisher I know is just as serious about their calling as any other writer. Our deadlines are self-imposed, but every bit as real. I usually set some hefty goals. In fact, I did set some hefty goals. But in learning about who my new characters are and discovering more about the world in which they live, I decided I need more time. The rush and pressure to publish isn't doing me any good. It's definitely not making my writing better. Instead of publishing a three-novella series, I might just publish one or two of the novellas. The important thing is that I'm enjoying the process without all the pressure.
Sound like a good plan?
HOW IS YOUR WRITING GOING?
(If you get a chance, check out my post at Untethered Realms. It's about how I discovered a solution to a writing problem. Not an insecurity, really, but about how I was able to begin moving forward again.)
