October 2019 IWSG

Hello everyone and as always thanks for stopping by. These are the co-hosts for August 2019’s Insecure Writers Support Group brought to you by Alex J. Cavanaugh and his team of co-hosts: Ronel Janse van Vuuren, Mary Aalgaard, Madeline Mora-Summonte and Ellen @ The Cynical Sailor

Be sure to stop by their sites and give them some love for all their hard work this month! 

October 2 Question It's been said that the benefits of becoming a writer who does not read is that all your ideas are new and original. Everything you do is an extension of yourself, instead of a mixture of you and another author. On the other hand, how can you expect other people to want your writing, if you don't enjoy reading? What are your thoughts? 

I don’t see how one can develop the necessary character arcs of multiple personalities let alone create settings especially in a mythical world if they are not healthy readers. 

The Ultimate Game of Jenga

The best books I’ve read all come from writers who are voracious readers. This is true for fiction and non-fiction. 

Unless the writer uses a ghost writer. And I don’t read many of those books. 

Question Fall is officially here. Any special plans for a spooky October?
