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 officiallyInsecure 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. And please be sure your avatar links back to your blog! If it links to Google+, be sure your blog is listed there. Otherwise, when you leave a comment, people can't find you to comment back.
Let’s rock the neurotic writing world!

Every month, we announce a question that members can answer in their IWSG post. 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.
Remember, the question is optional!
November 1 question - Win or not, do you usually finish your NaNo project? Have any of them gone on to be published?
The awesome co-hosts for the November 1 posting of the IWSG are Tonja Drecker, Diane Burton, MJ Fifield, andRebecca Douglass!
I love this month's topic, since this is my second year of participation in National Novel Writing Month. Last year, I wrote Stolen Secrets, and it was indeed published. I hope to do the same this year! I am goal oriented, so having a specific time and deadline, though exhausting, is very helpful to me.
This year I plan to write Ancient Secrets. I have the majority of the book plotted, so I'm optimistic. Rough draft, here I come!
Find and connect with me in Nano, as Glimmering!

Snippet from "Shadow Walkers"
He hurried back and began wrapping the cord around Lydia’s right forearm, binding it to the chair.
“Wait, what do you think you’re doing?” Tessa cried out.
Sabina grabbed his sleeve and cried, “Let her go!”
He jerked away and snapped, “It’s not me that’s got her!”
They both stepped back in surprise as the chair suddenly levitated four feet into the air, with Lydia now out of Tessa’s reach.
I hope you enjoyed the snippet from this scary story! I love Halloween, personally (who wouldn't like extra treats?), and I especially like my friend "Fang" even though Elizabeth said his howls are battery operated and there aren't any real live dogs that have only bones and no skin or fur (What she doesn't know won't hurt her, I guess). Be sure to visit all the other #WeekendWritingWarriors and #SnippetSunday authors for more great reads! And join the blog hop/sign up for prizes below!
I blog there the 18th of each month!
