IWSG: Attitude-Getting Your Head in the Game

{Note to followers: if you want an email when a new post goes up, go the the left column and subscribe for emails. Thanks.}

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!

Posting: The first Wednesday of every month is officially Insecure Writer’s Support Group day. Post your thoughts on your own blog. Talk about your doubts and the fears you have conquered. Discuss your struggles and triumphs. Offer a word of encouragement for others who are struggling. Visit others in the group and connect with your fellow writer - aim for a dozen new people each time. Be sure to link to this page and display the badge in your post.

Let’s rock the neurotic writing world!

Our Twitter hashtag is #IWSG

My awesome co-hosts for the August 5 posting of the IWSG will be Nancy Gideon, Bob R Milne, Doreen McGettigan, Chrys Fey, Bish Denham, and Pat Garcia!


 I have to admit that I'd rather be "zleeping" too. But, my manuscript needs attention. After a few doses of caffeine each morning, I gear up, strap on my pads, and do battle with words. It's not always easy. That's why, as I near completion of my main WIP, I had to find a mantra for the journey.
  • Keep my feet on the ground,
  • Keep my head in the game,
  • Keep my heart open to instruction,
  • Respond with a learning spirit,
  • For all of us can improve.
Attitude is all it takes to chance a hard day into a day when the writing gets better.

Do you have any suggestions? How do you "get your head into the game"? 

Next Week: Polishing, Sanding, and Editing. ;-)
