IWSG: Getting Personal Now!


It’s the first Wednesday in March and that means IWSG Day and I have been having a rough month, busy-ness and inspiration wise.

March 4 question – Other than the obvious holiday traditions, have you ever included any personal or family traditions/customs in your stories?

I’m stumped on something to say this month. This question seems fitting, because in undergrad my favorite creative writing prof taught us (among other things) that we should avoid being autobiographical in fiction. It’s something I struggle with a lot. Sometimes the personal is the public. We all have our little eccentricities and stories – and even if they’re all different, we *get* it.

It’s something I struggle with, and so I’m not sure if I ever get personal. I try very deliberately not to – and maybe that’s part of my problem right now.

Hope everyone has a great March! Stay healthy and well.
