Two months of 2017 have waved goodbye to us. Looks like this year is in a tearing hurry to be a blip in our lifetime. It's time for another IWSG (Insecure Writers Support Group) an online group of writers posting on the first Wednesday of every month. IWSG posts give us a chance to discuss all aspects of writing which we are unable to discuss with non-writers. It’s a relief to discuss the worries, anxieties, fears and insecurities which haunt our writing space. Other writers who have undergone these feelings and overcome them help out with their advice and tips. Check out the IWSG website for amazing writing tips. To read the other IWSG posts, click here.
If we mention IWSG, can Ninja Captain Alex J Cavanaugh (author of the Amazon Bestsellers: CassaStar, CassaStorm, CassaFire and Dragon of the Stars) be far behind. This wonderful group is his brainchild. A4 (Amazing, Adorable and Awesome Alex) has ensured that we writers retain our sanity by giving us a chance to let off all our writing steam (stress, doubts and worries) in a healthy way through these posts.
March 1 IWSG Question: Have you ever pulled out a really old story and reworked it? Did it work out?
Yes, I have pulled out a couple of old stories and reworked them. But to be honest, I lost interest midway while revising one old story and had absolutely no interest while tackling the revisions for the second story. I thought I was wasting my time, I felt it would be better if I spend that time working on a new story. I also felt that both the stories sucked and they were full of cliches and the writing was so crappy that I wanted to hide myself in that dusty drawer out of embarrassment.
I am eager to read all your posts to see how you all tackled your older stories which were gathering dust in drawers.
