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! (Our Twitter hashtag is #IWSG)
This is my first time participating in Alex’s Insecure Writer’s Support Group, so I hope I do it right because the timing is perfect. This weekend, my wonderful publisher, Sapphire Star Publishing sent out Advanced Reader Copies (ARCs) of my debut novel to major reviewers. Ahhh! I find this both exciting and nerve wrecking. What if the reviewers don’t like my book? What if they don’t like my characters? What if they don’t like the world I created? What if….
Breathe. I tell my self. It will be okay, I tell myself. Some of them will like it. Some of them won’t. They are only people reading a book. Just like me.
