It’s time for another meeting of the Insecure Writers Support Group – #IWSG.
My hero, the amazing Ninja Captain Alex J. Cavanaugh founded this group and it has become a safe haven if you are an insecure writer.
Click the image if you would like to be a part of the #IWSG family. You won’t regret it.
Purpose: To share and encourage. Writers can express doubts and concerns without fear of appearing foolish or weak.
Our awesome co-hosts today are C. Lee McKenzie, Rachel Pattison, Elizabeth Seckman, Stephanie Faris, Lori L MacLaughlin, and Elsie Amata!
Please take a moment to thank them for their hard work.
September’s question of the month – How do you find the time to write in your busy day?
My days are ‘busier’ in the sense that I’m far slower in doing tasks than I was before 2011. I do find time in my routine to write. I recently discovered an app for my iPhone called Werdsmith, and I love it. I use it to jot ideas, notes, and sometimes even paragraphs when I’m in a car, or in bed and too lazy to power up the computer (or pull out a pen and paper).
I still manage to write (type) before bed, even if it’s for twenty minutes/half-hour.
I also opened a free account with CELTX, a scriptwriting program that I’m trying to familiarize myself with. It looks straightforward. There’s an app for that, too – and it can also be upgraded to a paid account. The free is good for beginners like me.
I’d do well with Scrivener if I could ever get through the tutorial without becoming completely flustered. (It’s the brain). *Sigh* I’ve had it since I won NaNo in 2013 and still haven’t been able to enjoy it.
Have you wanted to learn something so badly, but seemed to get stuck at every turn? How did you conquer said obstacle?
