#IWSG – C is also for Confused

C is for Challenge but also for Creator and Captain. As in…

Created  and hosted by the Ninja Captain himself, Alex J. Cavanaugh, theInsecure Writer’s Support Groupmonthly blog post is here again – and so am I. Albeit briefly this month.

Anyway, on to this month’s question.

April 3 question: If you could use a wish to help you write just ONE scene/chapter of your book, which one would it be? (examples: fight scene / first kiss scene / death scene / chase scene / first chapter / middle chapter / end chapter, etc.)

The opening where readers first encounter Sparkle Anwyl – and so does she as she’s lost her memory. I’ll leave you as C for Confused as us.

The awesome co-hosts for the April 3 posting of the IWSG are

J.H. Moncrieff, Natalie Aguirre, Patsy Collins, and Chemist Ken! 

Purpose of IWSG: 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!

Every month, we announce a question that members can answer in their IWSG post. These questions may prompt you to share advice, insight, a personal experience or story. Include your answer to the question in your IWSG post or let it inspire your post if you are struggling with something to say.

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 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 – and return comments. This group is all about connecting!

Let’s rock the neurotic writing world!

Our Twitter handle is @TheIWSG and hashtag is #IWSG.

  1. Memory loss is an interesting idea. One I’ll file away for future use. It’s a tad too close to home for now having lost my Dad to dementia a couple of years ago, but amnesia is too good an idea to stay filed away for long.

    Good luck with A-Z Roland – I’m starting to get my reading act together for April so should appear more often 🙂

    • Sorry to hear about your Dad, Debs. My ex’s mum died of dementia and that was hard on family and close friends. In a way that gave me some insights and knowing people with short-term memory loss from equestrian injuries.

  2. Good luck on your A to Z challenge. I’ve never attempted it, so admire anyone who does. I’ve not used memory loss before but I have played around with blocked memories. It’s a very flexible device to use in writing. Thanks so much for stopping by my blog. I hope I’m able to contribute to WEP this month, but even if I don’t, I look forward to the entries.

    • Thanks for that comment, Toi. I must be addicted to A to Z as I keep coming back despite the excessive demands. My debut novel used more of a blocked memories device for the male protagonist. This time it’s more retrograde amnesia after an injury. I do hope we get treated to another of your engrossing WEP stories.
