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!
Posting: The first Wednesday of every month is officially Insecure Writer’s Support Group day. Post your thoughts on your own blog. Talk about your doubts and the fears you have conquered. Discuss your struggles and triumphs. Offer a word of encouragement for others who are struggling. Visit others in the group and connect with your fellow writer - aim for a dozen new people each time - and return comments. This group is all about connecting! Be sure to link to this page and display the badge in your post.
Let’s rock the neurotic writing world!

These questions may prompt you to share advice, insight, a personal experience or story. Include your answer to the question in your IWSG post or let it inspire your post if you are struggling with something to say.
December 7 Question: In terms of your writing career, where do you see yourself five years from now, and what’s your plan to get there?
The awesome co-hosts for the December 7 posting of the IWSG will be Jennifer Hawes, Jen Chandler, Nick Wilford,Juneta Key, JH Moncrieff, Diane Burton, and MJ Fifield!
Five years from now I see myself walking in the dunes of an Egyptian movie set, watching them film my Illuminati series. Okay, well that may be a bit ambitious, but there's no reason one can't dream and to that end I have begun to try getting my work into the hands of film makers. I have a friend who has written the screenplay and novelization for movies, and another whose book rights have been purchased by Speilberg, though they have not yet announced plans to begin filming. So I do know it's possible, which is why I have been working diligently to increase my output and PR distribution. I have been trying to write every day, even it's just a paragraph or two. For me, that's a huge shift in my writing habits. NANO should spawn a MANO and a JUNO!
NaNo sure helped me work toward my writing goals. I wonder how many writers have had their writing goals inspired by NaNo? Have you?

Now *that* is an awesome, original answer! And I hope it happens for you--why not? We should dream big. What's the point of aiming small? It's definitely possible.
