The Insecure Writer’s Support Group
Every month, we announce a question that members can answer in their IWSG Day post.
Remember, the question is optional!!!
June 7 Question: Did you ever say “I quit”? If so, what happened to make you come back to writing?
Did I ever say, "I quit!"? Yep. Numerous times. I think about it a lot when I get down on myself and sales are non-existent and the end of my edits seem too far away. Of course, I lose the most if I let myself quit. It would never make me happy. I'd always wonder, "What if?". So, I keep going. I keep moving forward. I keep writing.
***Official announcement for the IWSG's next anthology!
The IWSG Guide to Writing for Profit--This will be a non-fiction book like our Guide to Publishing and Beyond.
What to write: Share experiences about making a profit as an author, what it takes to become a successful writer, the many skills a writer needs to learn other than writing, share the experience going from hobby writer to published author (without making it a self-promotion piece), the fallacies behind writing for profit, the little known facts learned along the way, what you wished you knew when you first started writing, or marketing tips based on experience of what has worked and what hasn't. Please include a title, your name, and a link to one of your sites. Send as an attached Word file or pasted into the email.
If you have any questions, email us at admin AT insecurewriterssupportgroup.
Word limit: 500-1000 words.
Submission eligibility: All members of the IWSG Blog Hop, IWSG Facebook group and/or members of our IWSG Goodreads Book Club. It's free to join any of these groups and a great benefit to be a part of these communities.
Deadline: July 31, 2017
