Insecure Writer’s Support Group: IWSG Contest!

Sher here, reposting the following as penance for forgetting my own IWSG post in the rush of trying to get my next house finished before Christmas and as a contest entry. You can see the original and enter the contest by clicking the link either at the top or bottom of the post. Thanks!

Insecure Writer’s Support Group: IWSG Post Day and Announcing a Contest!: For those of you participating in the IWSG posting on your blogs, today is the day you throw your securities to the wind or offer words of encouragement. If you are a blogger, we encourage you to join us. Full description and sign up HERE.

IWSG Contest!

Open to everyone and anyone with a blog or a Twitter, Google+, or Facebook account.

Help us spread the word about our new site! The Facebook Page is already rocking. Let people know the two ways they can benefit from the IWSG website:

1 – It’s a database of information, focusing on major links, other databases, and resources for writers. Topics include writing tips; publishers, agents, and queries; self-publishing; marketing; contests; publications; and services. Each page is a wealth of information, leading to some of the top sites for authors, and we also post information to help writers every Monday.

2 – The IWSG itself – the first Wednesday of every month is the official posting day for those with blogs. Members post their insecurities, frustrations, and concerns, and others stop by to offer encouragement and advice. The kindness and words of wisdom have kept writers going when they were ready to quit. Many have discovered solutions to their problems. Friendships have been forged and critique partners established.

Help us spread the word –
Tweeting – one entry
Google+ post – two entries
Facebook post – five entries
Blog post – ten entries

We have two prize packages that will be awarded:
