IWSG September 2nd
The IWSG 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 help and guidance. It’s a safe haven for insecure writers of all kinds! SIGN UP AND JOIN & FIND OUT MORE HERE!
Let’s rock the neurotic writing world!
Our Twitter is @TheIWSG and hashtag #IWSG.
Every month, we announce a question that members can answer in their IWSG Day post. These questions may prompt you to share advice, insight, a personal experience or story. Include your answer to the question in your IWSG post or let it inspire your post if you are struggling with something to say.
Remember, the question is optional!!!
IWSG September 2nd Question
If you could choose one author, living or dead, to be your beta partner, who would it be and why?
Maybe L. M. Montgomery, but not really, I would be intimidated. Because her use of description and setting is like a character in her books. You love the place as much as you love Anne of Green Gables or Pat of Silver Bush. I want to bring my world to life like that and make people love it.
