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. We encourage everyone to visit at least a dozen new blogs and leave a comment. Your words might be the encouragement someone needs.

Alex's awesome co-hosts for the August 4 posting of the IWSG are PK Hrezo, Cathrina Constantine, PJ Colando, Kim Lajevardi, and Sandra Cox!

August 4 optional question - What is your favorite writing craft book? Think of a book that every time you read it, you learn something or you are inspired to write or try the new technique. And why?

 Endings are hard. Any chapped-ass monkey with a keyboard can poop out a beginning, but endings are impossible. You try to tie up every loose end, but you never can. The fans are always gonna bitch. There's always gonna be holes. And since it's the ending, it's all supposed to add up to something. I'm telling you, they're a raging pain in the ass ...



  1. Like the one about pissing off people.
    I need to hire a monkey to create a beginning for me.

  2. Ending also never seem like they will arrive, either.

  3. LOL, Heather! That introvert's schedule is so me! I have to recover from a lot of things. Thanks for the laughs.

  4. Hi Heather - fun to read ... do New Yorkers say 'You' ... I'd have thought they say 'Ya' ... or perhaps even 'Yew' ... take care and stay safe -cheers Hilary

  5. Beginning and ending both difficult. But still we are doing something.

  6. 😆 I'd like to counter your New York Slang meme with Philly.
    "You good"
    "A'ight" (All right, without the "l"s)

    It lines up with all of those. Aight?

  7. The ending is what can make or break a book for me. Sometimes if I'm at a bookstore and I'm on the fence about buying the book, I peek at the ending. I know some people may say that that ruins the book for them, but for me, a disappointing ending ruins the book for me. It's like Emma from that movie Alex and Emma, who said that she always reads the endings of books first so that she'll know whether or not it's worth it to invest herself in reading it. I don't do this every time, but sometimes.
