Welcome to the Insecure Writer's Support Group. IWSG is the brainchild of Ninja Captain Alex J. Cavanaugh.

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! Thanks, Alex, for starting this group and keeping it going. We are rockin' the neurotic writing world.

Our Twitter handle is @TheIWSG and hashtag is #IWSG

The awesome co-hosts for the November 1 posting of the IWSG are PJ Colando, Jean Davis, Lisa Buie Collard, and Diedre Knight!

November 1 question: November is National Novel Writing Month. Have you ever participated? If not, why not?

I've never participated in NaNo. I admire those who do. One of my friends uses what she wrote for NaNo as the springboard for her next novel. Many find it very useful in making them focus. It seems like more work than I want to do. It's not just the writing but visiting others, touching base (as I understand it).

The timing makes it extra difficult. Thanksgiving--big dinner, lots of family and/or friends, visitors from out of state. Christmas shopping. I can find lots of reasons why NaNo is too much work for me. And also the reason why I admire those who participate.

Good luck and best wishes to all of you who are participating in NaNoWriMo.
