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!
Actually, you don’t have to be an insecure writer to enjoy the posts by IWSG. The awesome co-hosts for the the August 5 posting of the IWSG are:
I Got Hugs From Angela Ackerman
I ‘flew’ solo when I wrote my first novel. It took ten years. If I’d had a pit crew, it would have taken much less time. And it would have been so much more fun. Angela and Becca, and many others, are now on my pit crew in my writer’s cave.
And today, I’ve been accepted on the
Writers Helping Writers
Like, wow! Angela and Becca, the creators of WHW, have sent hugs to all of us who have been accepted as the street team for this exciting new program. We are all over the moon with giggles and hugs.
October 7th is the planned launch date. If you would like to receive updates directly from Writers Helping Writers, contact Angela and Becca at: http://onestopforwriters.com/
Post by Writers Helping Writers:
ANGELA ACKERMAN: “Within One Stop, writers will be able to easily access over two dozen thesauri, dictionaries, unique generators and other tools that will help them plan incredible stories, build compelling characters, and improve their descriptive writing in many areas. No more staring at a blank screen, minutes slipping by, as one tries to best describe a character’s emotions or how a curl of mist unfolds itself across a swamp in the moonlight. No more aimless Internet surfing for the perfect symbol to show a protagonist’s internal conflict or wading through Google hits to find a way to describe his personality. Like a library, One Stop is a muster point for all this information and more, streamlining research so a writer spends more time doing what they intended: putting words on the page.”
