First Wednesday of every month writers around the blogoshpere post their advice and insecurities in order that we may stand strong together.

So today, I was thinking how even though it's okay and pretty common for writers to feel insecure in their work, letting those insecurities take control is a huge mistake. What I mean, is that if we're too insecure to put our work out there, then we never have the opportunity to grow.
Fellow writer and bloggers, Dianne K. Salerni and Marcy Hatch, offer a nice opportunity for writers to post their first page and get feedback from other writers. They give exceptional advice and are always constructive. As it happens, their post today is from my revised first page of my YA thriller. Yes, I put myself out there and braced myself for a beating, but all I got was genuinely helpful feedback.
Check it out! And if you don't already, start following Dianne's and Marcy's blog. And maybe I'll be seeing your first page up their next time!
