IWSG: Writing Stressors


I
t’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.

Now, IWSG hosts have changed up the format in an effort to make it more fun and interactive. Every month, they will 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. 

Don’t forget to visit others that day to see their answers. Want to join, or learn more? Visit our - Sign-up List.


DECEMBER QUESTION - 
In your writing, what stresses you the most? What delights you?

MY ANSWER - The thing that stresses me the most is finding the right balance of details in my storytelling - providing enough for interest, but not so much to create mundane situations such as those that may arise from too much telling instead of showing. What delights me the most is trying to flesh out a new tale from one of the many story ideas that are constantly circling in my mind.

How about you? What stresses or delights you the most?

I tend to be thin on the details and always have to add them later.

Writing a balance between rich detail and too much unnecessary information is always a challenge. Happy IWSG day.

I like details, too. Sometimes it's hard to know when you've been writing for yourself and when you've remembered the reader.

Enjoy your holidays!
