IWSG: Happy May Day!

May 1st happens to be on a Wednesday this year, so that means it’s IWSG Day AND May Day at the same time. I’m a writer, so language fascinates me – and I get easily sidetracked by it. May Day is one of those funny language things where two words have so many different meanings […]

IWSG: If Wishes Came True

April 3 question: If you could use a wish to help you write just ONE scene/chapter of your book, which one would it be? It’s IWSG Day and that means time to share another milepost along the writing journey. What part of my book would I like to be able to write via magic wish? […]

IWSG: Heroes & Villains

It’s the first Wednesday of the month and that means Insecure Writer’s Support Group time! Optional March 6 question – Whose perspective do you like to write from best, the hero (protagonist) or the villain (antagonist)? And why? This is a really good question for me this month. I’ve been working on back story for […]

IWSG: Health Concerns

It’s the first Wednesday of the month and that means IWSG Day and I missed last month because I was really sick at the time, like serious chest cold sick. Speaking of chest cold, I always get fall/winter allergies, but this past winter has been killer for me, in large part because of the up […]

Must-Haves

It’s the first Wednesday of the month and that means another IWSG Day! In the Insecure Writer’s Support Group, we get together (at least) once a month to exchange stories along the writing journey. This month’s optional question asks us what five things we have in our writing space. For me, there are just a […]

IWSG: Constructive Writing

It’s once again the first Wednesday of the month, and that means IWSG Day in the Spookiest Month of All – October!  Every first Wednesday, members of the Insecure Writer’s Support Group get together to discuss our fear, hopes, and accomplishments. This month I’m taking on the (optional) question of the month: How do major […]

IWSG: September Is Here!

So it’s the first Wednesday of the month and that means IWSG Day and I completely forgot due to … I really don’t have a good excuse, except I’ve been busy. Writing-wise, I’ve been doing a lot of editing and backstory. Among other hopefully more productive things, I dug the first novel I ever wrote […]

IWSG: Stories Are Great!

Due to a family emergency, this past month has been kind of crazy. While we were out at lunch at a place I normally don’t go to, after leaving the hospital – again – me and my family member both got cute story cubes as part of our Kid’s Meals. Then, an adorable little girl […]

IWSG: Titles Are Hard

It’s the first Wednesday of the month and that means <drum roll> IWSG Day! This month’s optional question is: which is harder to come up with, a book title or the name of a character? To me, the obvious answer is Title of course. Don’t get me wrong. Character names can be tricky. I once […]

IWSG: Springspiration!

It’s the first Wednesday in May and so far what a month it is. Due to the weird weather we’ve been having in the Northeastern United States, I keep having these dreams lately that we have snow in May – and I mean a lot of snow. Last night, I dreamed we were having a […]
