IWSG: Wednesday, June 3, 2020 ~ No Secrets to Share





It's the first Wednesday of the month,
the day that members of the
Insecure Writer's Support Group
share their writing struggles
and writing successes
and offer their encouragement
and support to fellow writers.






To visit the IWSG website, click here.

To become a member of the IWSG, click here.

Our wonderful co-hosts who are volunteering today,
along with IWSG Founder Alex Cavanaugh are Pat GarciaJ. Q. Roseand Natalie Aguirre.

I hope you have a chance to visit today's hosts and thank them for co-hosting.
I'm sure they would appreciate a visit and an encouraging comment.

~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~

Every month the IWSG announces a question that members can answer
with advice, insight, a personal experience, or a story in their IWSG posts.

Or, the question can inspire members
if they aren't sure what to write about on IWSG Day.

Remember the question is optional.
This month's featured question is:

Writers have secrets! What are one or two of yours, something readers would never know from your work?

~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~

Happy June, Everyone!
I hope all is well with you.

I'm skipping this month's optional question.
I have secrets, but they are not ones I can share.

However, I have questions for you.
Are you entering the 2020 IWSG Anthology Contest?
Have you started writing your science fiction short story?
How would you like some insider writing tips from last year's winners
featured in the IWSG's latest anthology, Voyagers:  The Third Ghost?

If you would, I invite you to check out last Wednesday's and today's posts
on the Insecure Writers Support Group Anthologies Blog:

As for my writing progress, I sure hope it goes better in June than it did in May.
Nuff said!

Be safe and healthy!
Happy writing in June!






Till next time ~

  1. Are secrets meant to be shared?....I don't think so.

    1. I agree, Yvonne! As a union leader, my ability to keep secrets and confidences powered my credibility and proved my integrity. All the best to you, my friend!

  4. I hope you have a better month writing in June. I haven't been writing at all but I've been updating all the agent spotlights on my blog since late April. I'm hoping for a good writing month in June too.

    1. I don't know about you, but I thought I'd get so much done during the stay-at-home period. Wrong ~ LOL. Oh well, I'm under this order until the fall. I can only hope to get better. Good luck with your writing, Madeline!

  8. No, I'm not entering. I have little motivation to write, period. I promised myself I'd start on June 1st, and I didn't. Course, I did write a post for this month; that's something. Oh, hum. This blah-ness will pass. Happy IWSG Wednesday, Louise!

    1. We're in such an odd time, Joylene! Just getting through it is an accomplishment. We'll all get our sparkle back, hopefully sooner than later. All the best to you!

  9. Wish I could, but as a IWSG Admin, that's not allowed. My compensation is I get to read the entries early, so that's something.

    Great to visit Fundy Blue again.

  13. Tips are always great! I'm not sure I'm entering or not. After hearing my son's spew on all things Dark Matter, I'm more lost than before I asked him about it. Here's wishing you lots of writing this month!

  16. I honestly can't think of one secret that I might have. I tend to keep them when I buy gifts and such, because surprises are fun, but other than that, I'm pretty much an open book.

  17. I hope both of us write more/better this month.
