IWSG: Happy Birthday!


Although I've only been in 
the Insecure Writer's Support Group for a year, 
it's been a real pleasure.  

Huge thanks to Alex 
and all the generous members of our community 
who share their aggravations, fears, hopes, and dreams to support others.


HAPPY 2nd BIRTHDAY
TO ALEX CAVANAUGH'S
INSECURE WRITER'S SUPPORT GROUP!!!




This is a post for the Insecure Writer's Support Group, the brainchild of Alex J. Cavanaugh. It exists so the community of blogging writers can share and support each other, blog-hopping to cheerlead and commiserate. To find out more, visit: Insecure Writer's Support Group.

Thanks, Lexa!! Such an amazing group of people.

Awesome that IWSG has been going for two years now.

Tempus fugit.
And here's to countless more years ahead. (:

Chemist Ken said...

Probably never thought you had a year's worth of writer's insecurities when you first joined the group, did you? With all the insecurities associated with writing, IWSG will probably go on for another ten years.

Leandra Wallace said...

Insecure and writer are two words that certainly go together- sorta like peanut butter and jelly. Happy Birthday to Alex's brainchild!

L.G. Smith said...

It's a great coming together of neurotic writers. Seems we never run out of insecurities to talk about. :)

Isis Rushdan said...

The last two years have flown by. So lucky we have this group.

Cherie Colyer said...

It's a great group. :)

VR Barkowski said...

Congratulations on two years IWSG! Very cool. Even better: the pending IWSG website. How great will that be? Kudos to Alex and his efforts!

Congratulations, even though your writing doesn't seem to contain anything you'd need to feel insecure about.

Crystal Collier said...

Woot, woot! I love your birthday images. Best ones I've seen thus far. (Shh, don't tell the others--unless you need bragging rights to pick up your spirits.)

Sherry Ellis said...

It's hard to believe it's been two years!

Snoop Bloggy Dog said...

Yo Lexa!

Ah yes, a happy birthday to that "I Was Seeking Gary" group! What? I got that wrong? Yeah, cool on y'all being two years old. And y'all who like to pawticipate, all the beast, um best!

Stay chillin',

I know, can you believe it will have it's own blog? I dunno if I'm more baffled by that fact or the fact that it took three years to do so? Love that picture Lexa. :D XX

M.J. Fifield said...

I have thoroughly enjoyed being a member of this group. So glad it's done so well.

I only just joined the ISWG today, so I'm sampling all these blogs at random. THis post doesn't have much to comment on so I went ahead and read the post below it, which I found, frankly, mystifying.

"Line edits?" This is not a thing that I know about, or even a thing that I knew existed. So what am I to make of this? Usually I'm extremely jealous of authors who have been published (I take out my jealousy in the most passive-aggressive/delicious way possible: by eating pizza) but now I find out that published authors have to do something called "line editing," and also I already ate pizza today, for lunch, so I'm really in a quandary here. Should I be jealous of you, or not?

*flips coins*

*coin rolls off hand, falls under desk, he is about to get it when he notices that there is an entire Butterfinger candy bar on the occasional table in his office*

MORE QUANDARY.

I've bookmarked your blog. I plan on coming back here frequently. As for the line editing? I barely edit my stuff as it is. So... I forget the question.

Emma Adams said...

Love the group! 2 years is an amazing achievement!
