#IWSG: A Bit of Edification #WritersLife

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. Be sure to link to this page and display the badge in your post.
Our Twitter hashtag is #IWSG
The awesome co-hosts for the September 3 posting of the IWSG will be Laura at My Baffling Brain, mark Koopmans, Shah Wharton, and Sheena-Kay Graham. 

And it's our three year anniversary of posting!


Unfortunately, I'm needing to pre-blog this ahead of time. Heading out of town without the internet. While YEAH! it's also POO!

I won't be able to visit other blogs, but I didn't want to skip a posting.

Wanted to share a few quotes which will hopefully encourage a few who might be READY TO THROW IN THE TOWEL today.


There's an English word for a beginning writer who never gives up. Published.  - J. Konrath

Keep your dreams alive. Understand to achieve anything requires faith and belief in yourself, vision, hard work, determination, and dedication. Remember all things are possible for those who believe. – Gail Devers

Give someone who's struggling a little encouragement today....


  1. Aloha Terri,

    Have a peaceful time without the Net around you :)

    PS... Love that English word... Published... it brings on a certain feeling of "Dude, I gone done it!"

    Happy Writing :)

  2. Great words of encouragement that we all need at times.

  3. And somebody really needed to hear those today!

  4. Never giving up is a motto to live by. Enjoy your 'technology' vacation.

  5. I hope you are having a wonderful time away from technology. Thanks for the words of encouragement.

  7. I LOVE that J. Konrath quote! I wish I had found that before I was published. ;)

  8. Have a nice time away. :)

    IWSG #179 until Alex culls the list again.
