insecure writers support group, writing


Developed by Alex Cavanaugh, the Insecure Writer’s Support Group is a wonderful community that shares the struggle and excitement of writing. Join us!

Many thanks to the creative co-hosts for the November 2 posting of the IWSG: Diedre Knight, Douglas Thomas Greening, Nick Wilford, and Diane Burton!

November 2’s optional question – November is National Novel Writing Month. Have you ever participated? If not, why not?

While NaNoWriMo intrigues me, I have yet to participate. A big reason why is that it’s a busy time of year in my day job. It’s also true that writing every day hasn’t been my style.

I think that writing 50K words in one month is a cool concept, and I would like to try it one year.

For those who have participated in NaNo, what were the best and worst aspects for you?

  1. I’ve done it several times (while working a day job.) Sometimes I made the goal, sometimes I didn’t. But it forced me to concentrate on putting words on paper instead of being distracted by everything else – like the internet, and that was good for me.

  2. Cannot really share what participating in NaNoWriMo is like; I’ve never participated in it. I got excited about it a few times, but then just as quickly chickened out. That said, I would never discourage anyone else from giving it a shot. Anything that requires that much time, effort, and focus, has got to provide a lesson or two to be learned, even if just some self-awareness of something you do well or that may need practice.

    Thanks for sharing.
