#IWSG - February is here and we're cold and then hot and then cold!

It’s time for another group posting of the Insecure Writer’s Support Group! Time to release our fears to the world – or offer encouragement to those who are feeling neurotic. If you’d like to join us, click on the tab above and sign up. We post the first Wednesday of every month. I encourage everyone to visit at least a dozen new blogs and leave a comment. Your words might be the encouragement someone needs.

The awesome co-hosts for the February 6 posting of the IWSG are Raimey Gallant, Natalie Aguirre, CV Grehan, and Michelle Wallace!

February 6 optional question - Besides writing what other creative outlets do you have? 

Hello there, nice blog people! (and occasional bot!)

It's February and the temps in NY this week are bouncing all over the thermometer! This morning it's below freezing, but yesterday afternoon we had a high of 60-somthing and I had the windows open in the car!
Mother Nature is keeping us on our toes.

I have nothing good to report on the writing front. On my latest story I've had 16 rejections, 2 no-responses, and 1 recent submission that's waiting a reply. That list is a mix of agents and publishers.

The rejections are all similar....thank you for the opportunity to read your work, it doesn't fit with what we're doing at the present, this is just one person's opinion, have a great day.

If I had the money to self-publish, I would consider it, but after you get so many rejections you have to start wondering if it's what you're sending out that sucks and not just the responses.

So...on that depressing note...I'm going to share a few funny pics, and some other IWSG info, and keep moving forward!
Thanks for listening.

The IWSG Book Club on Goodreads is changing things up!

- Discussion Day poll for quick and easy participation.
- Members can help us create Goodreads quizzes for the books we read.
- Giveaways exclusive to our members every Discussion Day.
- Freebies members can download when we announce our next reading selection.

We will still read a new book every other month, alternating between craft books and fictional books that demonstrate an aspect of writing, and our members will continue to vote on our fictional books. Our February/March 2019 book is…Rebecca by Daphne Du Maurier. This book was voted on by our members to be a good example of setting. Discussion Day will be March 20th.
