Hello writers! It’s the first Wednesday of the month and we know what that means:
Another meeting of the Insecure Writers Support Group – #IWSG. My hero, Ninja Captain Alex J. Cavanaugh founded this amazing group and it’s become THE PLACE to go if you are an insecure writer. Click the image if you would like to be a part of this phenomenal group. You won’t regret it.
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!
I’m thrilled to be co-hosting this month’s meeting again. Make sure to visit my other co-hosts:
I’m keeping it short and offering some famous quotes on inspiration and motivation when it comes to writing. I hope it helps!
“The objective of fiction isn’t grammatical correctness but to make the reader welcome and then tell a story …to make him/her forget, whenever possible, that he/she is reading a story at all.” ~ Stephen King
“It begins with a character, usually, and once he stands up on his feet and begins to move, all I can do is trot along behind him with a paper and pencil trying to keep up long enough to put down what he says and does.” ~ William Faulkner
“Your intuition knows what to write, so get out of the way.” ~ Ray Bradbury
“If you want to write, you can. Fear stops most people from writing, not lack of talent. Who am I? What right have I to speak? Who will listen to me? You are a human being with a unique story to tell. You have every right.” ~ Richard Rhodes
“It took me fifteen years to discover I had no talent for writing, but I couldn’t give it up because by that time I was too famous.” ~ Robert Benchley
