IWSG Wednesday

#IWSG Wednesday #2

Today is officially Insecure Writer’s Support Group day, which is the first Wednesday of every month. The purpose is to share and encourage, express doubts and concerns without fear of appearing foolish or weak, as well as offer assistance and guidance. It’s a safe haven for insecure writers of all kinds!

I missed last month’s post. My first was in June. This is my second IWSG post. Make sure to check out other writers’ posts here.

The co-hosts for the the August 5 IWSG are Nancy Gideon, Bob R Milne, Doreen McGettigan, Chrys Fey, Bish Denham, and Pat Garcia.
