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 […]

IWSG: New Job

Today is the first Wednesday of the month, and that means IWSG Day! It’s a chance for writers to talk about our insecurities, triumphs, and momentary hurdles on the way to triumph. This month, the main thing going on in my life is that I’ve finally broken down and very quickly (it all happened so […]

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 […]
