This group is for writers of all genres no matter what part of the writing journey you’re on. It’s a safe place where you can share your insecurities, struggles, your triumphs, or offer a word of encouragement for other writers. Our Twitter handle is @TheIWSG and hashtag is #IWSG. 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.
The awesome co-hosts for the March 1 posting of the IWSG are Diedre Knight, Tonya Drecker, Bish Denham, Olga Godim, and JQ Rose!
March 1 question - Have you ever read a line in novel or a clever plot twist that caused you to have author envy?
Many lines in many books have hooked my attention
But none linger like Dickens:
It was the best of times. It was the worst of times (etc.)
Now... regarding Author Envy
I have a thing for Nora Ephron
She was a story-telling genius!
I absolutely love her humor and writing style
And that got me thinking
Writing styles are like underwear
BRIEFS WRITER a.k.a. tighty whities
Their writing is tight
Cutting out all those unnecessary words
And long expositions
WHITE COTTON PANTY WRITER
Their stories are so squeaky clean
They appeal to the Amish and sweet romance fans
Their stories don’t have much substance
But they definitely hold your interest.
BOXER UNDERWEAR WRITER
They use too many adjectives, adverbs
And other junky writing that no reader needs to see.
HOLEY UNDERWEAR WRITER
Their stories are so full of holes
They don’t make sense.
LACE PANTY WRITER
Their stories are so steamy
you need a shower afterward.
NO PANTIES WRITER
Porn. Too dirty to talk about.
Are you an “underwear” writer?
And can you think of another “underwear” writer genre.
