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.

Well hello there. I have so many projects going on now. But it feels good to be deep in them and not just thinking about it. I still have to re-edit Desdinova for print. Dang, I just need to DO IT! and be over it!
     I enjoyed July Camp Nano... I worked on a YA novel Southern Gothic. I still have a lot of work to do on it, but I am glad to have written all that I have-- it feels like something now, instead of just an idea.
     I am enrolled in AugNoWriMo now. For this camp, I decided to work on some short stories from the "story idea jars" and the files I have. I wanted to just have some of them DONE, and not clogging my files. Then I wrote one of the short stories, and hmmm, figured it would fit into a future novel idea perfectly.. And I had the brainflash that not every idea actually needs to be written up-- I need to work on the important things. The big projects.
     So I decided to just write the anthology story for AugNo, and go back to Southern Gothic. There is a list on the AugNo forum boards of all the different Camps thru the year, so I am thinking of just keeping on with them.
     I am looking forward to an October Camp for gothic novels. Got a fleshy idea for that one too!
     I am going to just state right here- that my goal for the next time IWSG rolls around- I will have Desdinova available in print.. Yikes, so I better get busy here!
     Happy inky trails to all my fellow writers!


  1. You are a busy, busy girl. You can do it.
    = )

  2. Thanks Jai, I certainly hope so! I get so impatient to have it all done though...

  3. At least you have time to write. I'm having WIP withdrawals! xD

    Great post. :)
    August co-host and IWSG #110

  4. Good luck. It sounds like you have a lot to get through this month. I did the July Camp NaNo, I didn't realize there was an August one going on too.

  5. Melissa, I'll be honest, I don't make the best use of my time. I spend a lot of time "being human". (Shameful, I know!)
    Jennifer: There are Camps about every month of the year! For August:

  6. That's a big goal! Best of luck! :-)
