IWSG for September 2012

The Insecure Writer's Support Group is the brilliant idea of our Ninja Captain, Alex J. Cavanaugh. On the first Wednesday of every month (or as close to the date as possible!), writers can express their doubts and concerns without feeling foolish. We all can offer each other sympathy and advice, strengthening our already awesome community. Please stop by to visit the other participants and offer them a few kind words.

This month, I want to offer everyone a big helping of inspiration and encouragement. The writing community never ceases to amaze me. You people are fantastic! Here are a few quotes for you.

"You need to be aware of what others are doing, applaud their efforts, acknowledge their successes, and encourage them in their pursuits. When we all help one another, everybody wins." - Jim Stovall

"A word of encouragement during a failure is worth more than an hour of praise after success." - unknown

"Those who are lifting the world upward and onward are those who encourage more than criticize." - Elizabeth Harrison

"Great opportunities to help others seldom come, but small ones surround us every day." - Sally Koch

"No act of kindness, however small, is ever wasted." - Aesop

  11. Hello from IWSG, and my favorite is the last one. But I like the second one too. If any mentioned chocolate, it would beat everything else, LOL!
