ONGOING WRITING CHALLENGES
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.
Connecting: This page will list those who are participating. It also allows for comments if you have an immediate need. This where we can help one another. Check this page whenever you visit – if you can help a fellow writer, hop over to their blog and offer assistance. Be watching for updates!
Let’s rock the neurotic writing world!
Our Twitter hashtag is #IWSG
*If you sign up and miss one first Wednesday, that’s all right! Those who sign up just to advertise or miss two postings in a row will be removed so as not to waste group member’s time. Thanks for respecting the purpose of this group!

A Round of Words in 80 Days is the writing challenge that knows you have a life.
We are all different and we all have different demands on our time. Why should we all have the same goal? The simple answer is that we shouldn’t. If you want to be a writer, then you have to be able to roll with the punches and adapt to your changing circumstances. If that means changing your goals when your life blows up, so be it.
“ROW80 is the challenge that champions the marriage of writing and real life.”

I’ve also found this meme (March 2013), which I thought sounded fine-o-fine.
Starting January 2013, the Indelibles will be hosting a monthly feature called INDIE LIFE. Modeled after Alex Cavanaugh’s awesome Insecure Writer’s Group, this will be a chance for indie authors to post about indie life, find each other, offer support, encouragement, news, helpful hints, and anything else that makes life as an indie author a little easier.
What is Indie Life?
How: Sign up on the Linky at the bottom of [their] page
When: Post on the second Wednesday of the month (starting 1/9/2013)
What: Write anything indie related: something that will inspire or help a fellow indie; something that celebrates a release or a milestone; something that talks about the ups and downs, joys and heartaches of Being Indie.
Grab: The banner above to include in your posts!
Because being Indie doesn’t have to mean going it alone.
I’ve discovered an inspirational blog, The Classics Club, which is devoted to encouraging readers to try more classics, in October 2013. It’s a five year challenge! Yes, you read correctly… I rarely plan ahead anywhere near that long, but what the hell.
So, the goal is to read at least fifty (or more) classics books within the next five years. The book selection can consist of modern classics as well as “old” classics, and may include poetry, plays, and classic children’s literature.
I am starting a little late (the group actually started a year ago), my end date will be October 2018.
I’ve already downloaded a few audio books to get me started. I’ll review these if I enjoyed them. Otherwise, I’ll just tell you I didn’t 😀 I’ll also add this list to the challenges page at some point. Here’s the list so far.
Wuthering Heights by Emily Bronte
Twelve Creepy Stories By Poe
The TellTale Heart (tick)
The Complete Collected Works of H. P. Lovecraft
The Yellow Wallpaper: Charlotte Perkins Gliman (tick)
- House of Leaves – Mark Danielewski (2000)
- Cormac McCarthy – The Road (2006)
