IWSG DEC 4, 2019 Role Play

It’s the first Wednesday of the month and that means Insecure Writer’s Support Group (IWSG) is enjoying its monthly blog fest invented by Alex J. Cavanaugh. IWSG is a safe haven for insecure writers of all kinds.

The awesome co-hosts for the December 4 posting of the IWSG are Tonja Drecker, Beverly Stowe McClure, Nicki Elson, and Tyrean Martinson!

MY QUESTION: Let’s play a game. Imagine. Role-play. How would you describe your future writer self, your life and what it looks and feels like if you were living the dream? Or if you are already there, what does it look and feel like? Tell the rest of us. What would you change or improve?

MY ANSWER: Words flow freely and alive with creativity. The scenes are exciting and dialog engaging. The computer rests in my lap as my fingers glide with purpose across the keyboard. 

I am filled with a sense of freedom as I’ve given myself permission to live without failure. Recognizing there are simply experiences from which to grow and learn.

Could you take a moment and share with me how you enrich your creative writing ability? How do you stimulate your imagination? Do you draw from actions of the people around you?

Thank you for visiting and taking a moment to comment. I promise to visit your site and return the favor.

  1. Hi,
    I have to admit that I see failure as a pertinent stepping stone to making me improve my writing skills and helping me become the kind of writer that I want to become. I’ve learned the most when I’ve had to pull myself out of the failure by learning whatever writing skill I needed t so that I . can say what I want to say and draw my readers in.
    In reference to ideas, sometimes my ideas flow but that is not very often. if anything, I receive a sentence or some kind of puzzle piece from a picture. It is when I sit down at my computer and start writing that the words rise and I began to see where the story is going. And since I write fiction, I can say that I can depend on my characters. If I let them . get close to me, which they usually do, they tell me when I am writing something about them that not a natural thing for them to do.
    Wishing you all the best.

    1. Hi Pat,
      I was allowing my fear of failure to be one more barrier to achieving my goals; big and small. I certainly correct my course of action and learn from the experience. I think it’s marvelous your characters talk and guide you. Thank you for visiting and sharing your experience with me.

  2. Pounding that first draft out without fear is essential – because fear of failure has kept many a promising writer from ever completing a manuscript. Wise post!

    1. HI Nicki,
      I completely agree fear blocks writing and many other life experiences. Thank you for co-hosting the our December IWSG blog hop and taking time to visit and comment.
