This is my December post for Alex Cavanaugh’s Insecure Writer’s Support Group, a lovely group of writers helping and inspiring other writers. To read more from this amazing group, click here.
I almost didn’t get this post written in time, but for good reason. I downloaded The Insecure Writers Support Group Guide to Publishing and Beyond and started reading. Do you have your copy yet? No? What are you waiting for? The book is chock-full of outstanding writing from talented folks who offer helpful and actionable suggestions about how to move forward in writing-related endeavors.
Monday evening, I’d slotted time to write this IWSG post but instead, I stayed up late reading the guide, and learning. How could I not? What a plum! Over one hundred writers have contributed how-to and inspirational essays designed to help other writers, no matter where they are in the journey. The depth and breadth of this publication made me step back and say, “Wow.”
For three years, members of IWSG have been imparting wisdom and encouragement on a monthly basis. Now there's a one-stop resource filled with similar support, I can turn to anytime. Yippee! So today, like so many others, I want to thank Alex Cavanaugh and all the folks who helped him create this awesome anthology. Please visit each of them and let them know how much their efforts have meant!
And, as a bonus, if you're interested in branding yourself as a writer, here's an intriguing take that will help you to do it like Hemingway, or Parker, or Fitzgerald...or Austen, or you!.
