IWSG: Creative Infighting

August is here already! And it’s the first Wednesday in August which means ISWG Day, the day when us writers get together and compare writerly notes. To be honest, I have nothing much to say this month. I was thinking about skipping when I saw the optional question:  August 5 question – Quote: “Although I […]

IWSG: What happens in quarantine…..

…stays in quarantine. Seriously, what just happened? I will admit to nothing about the past few months other than being a little weirder than I usually am – which, admittedly, is pretty weird. That’s okay. I had a lot of alone time, and that gave me a chance to come to peace with things about […]

IWSG: Secrets Writers Keep

This is my monthly post for The Insecure Writer’s Support Group, where once a month we share secret details about our personal lives…? I see your prying question, cohosts  Pat Garcia, J.Q. Rose, and Natalie Aguirre! I will do my best to pretend to answer while revealing nothing. June 3 question – Writers have secrets! What are one […]

Pray Without Ceasing

I’m probably going to take a couple days off from public posting again, mostly because I spent most of the past few days working on this book until my brain ran out of thoughts. I wrote over 10,000 words, which is a lot even for me. When I type it out like that, I’m like […]

IWSG: Ritual

Like many people, I’m still adjusting to the reality that I’ve been stuck in my house for the past couple of months and … rituals have been hard to keep. This past week, I finally accepted that my “real/regular job” isn’t coming back any time in the foreseeable future. I started to do what I […]

IWSG: My Time in Exile

This is the first Wednesday of the month, and that means IWSG Day! Like much of the “free” world, I am currently writing this from inside my home in the course of a weeks-long lock down to help slow the spread of a deadly disease in order to make the terrible less terrible. I know that […]

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 […]

IWSG: New Year Writer Resolution

2020 is here and it’s now the second Wednesday of 2020, but the Insecure Writer’s Support Group graciously gave us an extra week to write our posts for the month – and to go around and visit. This January, I was somewhat amused to discover that all of us in this Science Fiction/Fantasy Writer’s Group, […]

IWSG: Busy Months

Hard to believe October let alone IWSG Day is here. I have had a busy couple of months including a new job which I love! My job is appropriate to the question of the month: It’s been said that the benefits of becoming a writer who does not read is that all your ideas are […]

IWSG: Long Summer

This is my August post for the Insecure Writer’s Support Group. I’ve had a long summer and not so much in a good way. Well, okay, mostly in a good way. Right now, though, I’m mentally stuck on the fact that my father is in the hospital – again – because he fell and couldn’t […]
