Today being the first Wednesday of the month-it is time for a post about the IWSG -founded by Captain Alex Cavanaugh.
"It’s time for another group posting of the Insecure Writer’s Support Group!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. I encourage everyone to visit at least a dozen new blogs and leave a comment. Your words might be the encouragement someone needs. "
Writers come from all walks of life, yet like birds of a feather-we do flock together! We all hope to be on the perch sometime, sharing our news of selling short stories, finishing our manuscript, publishing our book, or any accomplishment-where our penned voice is heard. Writing is a tough gig. We are just trying to be heard and leave our imprint on the world. We hope our words like the birds who create their nest- will someday inspire, comfort, and or excite someone-maybe they will tweet about us! Yes we are a special breed~ What kind of bird are you?

In the flurry of wings, we must remind each other to continue chirping, have the courage to craft our stories and sing each others praises. Word enable our souls to fly, to find comfort in our nest, witness courage n' passion and align our humanity's feathers with hope. We can always tweet about each other and spread the song!
"Authors are a special breed – they are children at heart, adults when it comes to researching their information or plots, and they are ancient gurus striving to show the world that there are better ideas, more memorable stories, and fine literature just waiting to be published."

"The reasons birds can fly and we can't is simply because they have perfect faith, for to have faith is to have wings."
