Start Sharing

Join us the first Wednesday of every month for the Insecure Writer's Support Group hosted by Alex J. Cavanaugh.

We all have the few that are allowed to see our work in progress and we wait patiently for their honesty. I do enjoy being able to message the brave that read my WIP and will tell me to delete whole sentences, to expand on ideas or say they have no idea what in the world I'm talking about. No matter what, these few make me want to keep writing, write more, and write better. 

Take time and select a few close friends to give you honest feedback. By close, I mean "would move a couch" close. Just as writing becomes a habit, so should sharing. I have friends that write but no one knows they have talent. I say if the gift of writing is within you, then it was meant to be enjoyed by the masses. Become the encouragement other writers needs to pursue the 'next step' and help make writing a habit for them. 

Be inspired today! 
Be an inspiration everyday! 

For all my movie junkies. Head on over to Alex's blog and sign up for the Top Ten Movies Blogfest. 


  1. Great message and well said (written) :)

  2. I love this post! Years ago I had a friend who loved reading my "first" stuff. She would come to the back door to see if I had a few more chapters finished. I was always eager to hear her feedback. I was always anxious for her to show up at my door wanting more, that was a lot of the confirmation I needed to keep writing.
    I'm subscribing to you.....can't wait to read what you write next! Good luck my friend.

  3. Aww, I loved your line, "I say if the gift of writing is within you, then it was meant to be enjoyed by the masses." How wonderful is that? So inspirational!

    I have friends who have read my book and love it. I don't think it's bad to hand off your book to friends. I think good friends would tell you how to improve (in a nice way, like, "Maybe you could add..."). lol.

    Great post!

  4. My problem is that the people who want to read aren't writers, and the writers are all busy.

    Mostly my problem is that I write too fast for my readers to keep up.


  5. So true... Nice to meet you, dropped in from the IWSG...

    WE are all an inspiration for each other. Patience, honesty, and kindness is truly necessary in life.

  6. It wasn't until I started sharing my work that it started to get better. :)
