Insecure Writer's Support Group. Boo!

Fun in the sun...or maybe the cold where you live. It's the first Wednesday of the month and that means it's time for another IWSG post. The creator of this support group is none other than Ninja Warrior of Blogs, Alex J. Cavanaugh. To read about more insecurities or to be inspired go here.

Announcements are here this day.

My Halloween Collection is available on Amazon kindle. This is a collection of seven flash fiction stories sure to make you smile and creep you out. I had a few issues with the cover and it says five stories but there are seven and it's FREE for 5 days! 10/7/15 - 10/11/15. So head over and get your copy.

To purchase go here.

In other news, I've finished the anthology submission for IWSG due Nov, 1, 2015 and my critique group has it. Wish me luck.

Now for some insecurities. Take a number. Stand in line because my insecurities are so numerous I don't know where to start. I suspect the worst one is depression. I manage it primarily by writing but sometimes it gets the better of me. How about you?

Any thoughts?

PS; Please share my Halloween Collection, thanks.

Hi Nancy. Congratulations on your new Halloween Collection. Yay!! It's awesome that you're submitting a piece to the IWSG Anthology Contest.

Sorry about the depression. I know it all too well, being a sufferer myself. Hope you feel better soon. I'm always an email away. Have a great day. Eva, IWSG Co-host

Oh ho...thanks so much Laura and Powell, I'm honored.

Yes, Lilia, depression has been a curse most of my life but I focus on the positive. Thanks for your support.

Hi Hilary, I'm always happy to see you.

Cheers all,

Congrats on the collection! Unfortunately depression usually keeps me from writing, so I don't think I'd be much help there. I think if I actually forced myself to write I would probably feel better.

Hey, you've put out both a story collection and are working on submitting a story to another collection. Those are things to be proud of and successes to celebrate.

Depression takes time and support and work to get over, but accomplishing those things are HUGE and a big deal for anyone, in any state of mind. So massive kudos to you for that.

Thanks C.B, Alex and TBM

Hi NR! Depression is a tough one; I've struggled with it off and on throughout my life. It's often nature that snaps me out of it ~ it can be something as simple as scuffing through fall leaves. Well done at getting a manuscript done for the IWSG anthology! Kudos to you for writing a submission. I've been traveling these past five weeks, so I had to pass. Wishing you luck with your submission!

Thanks Fundy Blue
