#IWSG- Writerly Questions We Love and Don’t Love

Welcome to my second installment for The Insecure Writer’s Support Group. We’re a group of around 180 authors supporting each other and giving ourselves a safe place to express our fears, doubt, and other insecurities. If you write, please feel free to join us. We post to our blogs each first Wednesday. You’ll also find the links to all of our blogs at the end of the post!

This month’s question is about our favorite and least favorite questions we get asked about our writing. I don’t get asked about my writing often. I’m not real social, plus I don’t talk a lot about my writing. Something I should work on changing in the new year, Maybe? So, I think I shall do some questions I’d love to answer about my writing along with some that really don’t have any answers. So, without further ado, here’s my questions. Or is it answers? 😀

Questions I’d Love To Answer About My Writing.

  1. Who are your favorite authors?
  2. If you could have dinner with any (insert number) authors, living or dead, who would you choose? Why?
  3. What ways can we support independent/self-published authors?
  4. Do you have any recommended books or other writing that others should read?
  5. What are your favorite snacks and beverages for when you’re writing?
  6. What music, if any, do you listen to when writing?

Questions I Probably Will Never Be Able To Answer About My Writing

  1. Where do you get your ideas?
  2. What or Who was your inspiration for….?
  3. Why do you write (insert genre) books/stories?
  4. When did you know you wanted to be a writer?
  5. Do you include real people or places in your stories?
That’s all I have for now. Be sure to visit some of the participating blogs below, and tell them hi! Before you go, let me know if you’d like to read my answers to the questions in the first list. Just add a comment or send me an email from my contact page.

      Hi, Ronel. Thanks for stopping by. Maybe that’s why I don’t talk about it much LOL Then there’s no one asking when my book or whatever will be done or to read it, etc.

    Happy IWSG Day, JM! I really enjoyed both lists of questions you shared. One way I think that we as writers can support each other is by buying, reading, and then reviewing each other’s books. I buy and read a number of IWSG members books each year, and I always buy the anthology. Choosing is hard because there are so many intriguing IWSG books out there! But I do what little I can. Good luck to you and happy writing in the new year!

      Hi, Louise. Thanks for stopping by. Buying each other’s books is an amazing way to support one another, for sure, when we’re able. I’ll be running a special on my Date Night Ideas ebook next month if that’s something you’d be interested in. I’ll announce the exact dates to my email list in a week or so, then to social media around the first.
