It’s time for another group posting of the Insecure Writer’s Support Group! founded by Alex J. Cavanaugh. Time to release our fears to the world – or offer encouragement to those who are feeling neurotic. If you’d like to join us, click on the tab above and sign up. We post the first Wednesday of every month. Your words might be the encouragement someone needs. You can also join us on twitter using the hashtag #IWSG, or on the Facebook page.
Last month I mentioned taking a chance. So far, this year has been full of "new" experiences and chances for me. I've submitted to new markets, been published in several of them, visited with new groups, loved a few of them, and traveled to new places - including Scotland!
While you can never control whether a new market will publish your work, you can control what chances you take and which new experiences to try. Those new experiences in turn can fuel your imagination, relax and even excite you with future prospects. Never give up on taking chances, trying new things, and experiencing new events.
What new experiences have you taken part in this year? Are you planning any for the future? How might you benefit from that experience?
