The purpose of the IWSG is to share and encourage, posting on the first Wednesday of each month. You'll find writer doubts and concerns without fear of appearing foolish or weak. Support and a common understanding spread throughout the group as many fellow writers can relate. Feel free to JOIN in anytime.
So it seems like feeling insufficient comes naturally to most of us, at least at times. The other day, while surfing through status updates, posts, and shared articles on Facebook, I noticed something. Some of my amazing FB pals share. A lot. And I'm not just talking about I'm at Five Guys or Watching a Movie status updates. I mean wholesome posts and shared articles.
My eyes brushed upon subjects of public education woes to five things you never knew about your teacher to marriage advice. Really good information. Of course I love to see meaningful sharing on social media instead of some of the hate-mongering we've all been subject to read or those horrific animal cruelty videos that now auto-play - which I think is so unfair, BTW.
Whether writers or other work endeavors, I know the majority of those who share great material have children, families, and other responsibilities besides their day jobs. So how in the heck to they find, read, and share so much social media? I can hardly find the time to do what is necessary in my daily life to be able to find all that quality. Sometimes I feel like I owe those FB/Twitter/Tumbler/Pinterest friends a share in return.
