|Check out the IWSG HERE!|
Julie Flanders, Heather Gardner, Kim Van Sickler, and Elsie is Writing!
And of course a thanks to the ninja master himself, Alex Cavanaugh. The IWSG is the time and place for writers to gather, bond, and support one another.
It's like word therapy.
And it's getting bigger!! Yes. IWSG has expanded! It has its own website. I looked around it the other day, and honestly, this site is a one-stop shop for the anxious writer. There are tips on writing, links to contests, agent and publisher info, and writer services links. I mean seriously, this is one awesome site! Chesk out the website HERE!
Oh yeah, the IWSG has infiltrated Facebook too!
Goodness. So much goodness. And it doesn't stop there!
This month there is a contest! Enter that HERE!
With soooo much awesomeness in one post, I am going to give you my insecurities with the nutshell approach:
*I hate it when I feel like no matter how hard I work I never get anything finished.
*I hate that I can't figure out the magic bullet for sales.
*I hate that I still haven't tackled the newsletter or my pathetic little website.
*I hate it when I read an awesome book and it makes me feel like a crappy writer.
*I hate it when I read a crappy book with awesome sales and it makes me feel like a crappy writer.
*I hate it when I get jealous of my amazing friends.
*I hate it when the whole world seems to have it together and I feel like I am juggling rotten, squishy tomatoes.
BUT! There is a cure for ALL of this.
Stick with other writers. They get it; they get you. No one else will understand the neurosis of word addiction. Not your mom, your hubs, or your kids. Yeah, they may be supportive and wonderful in their own right...but only another writer understands the pain of a rejection, a bad review, or bottom of the pot sales.
Now, just so it doesn't feel like a total downer/whiner post...here's a huge give-away.
Lindsay Anne Kendal put this together as a Christmas gift from the World Castle Publishing crew. There are some awesome books in this list (and no, I'm not just talking about my own ;)
