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: 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: Breaking Writers Blocks!

It’s April already, the first Wednesday in April, and that means <drum roll> IWSG Day! This month’s optional question is:¬†When your writing life is a bit cloudy or filled with rain, what do you do to dig down and keep on writing? I have three tricks I use in those down moments, and I’d like […]

IWSG: New Improved Resolutions

Happy New Year and Happy IWSG Day! Hard to believe 2018 is here. Not sure about everyone else but here in the Northeast U.S. it’s been super cold and now they’re throwing out scary words like “bomb” to describe the weather. Fortunately, I’m not on the coast but the cold has made getting out of […]

IWSG: A Writer’s Many Hats

Hard to believe that February is here. This year the first falls on a Wednesday, which means IWSG Day is here super early! True confessions, I was planning to skip this month due to working several personal deadlines and being busy and stressed. Then I saw this month’s question and thought I can write something […]

Celebrate the Small Things

Wow, so it’s Friday again. This week was a slow week in some ways and that’s probably because I got a lot of (boring – yawn) work done. Sold quite a few business writing pieces, enough so I feel almost like an actual writer. Even though I really love fiction, it gives me this happy […]

IWSG: Ready or Not

This is my monthly post for the Insecure Writer’s Support Group, and I have to confess that this month’s question is really apropos for me. The question is: “When do you know your story is ready?” Honestly, I usually can’t tell, not on my own, because I’ve found I have no clue if a story […]

IWSG: Show Don’t Tell – Evoke

First, Happy IWSG Day! This is the first Wednesday of the month and that means it is time for Insecure Writer’s Support Group Day, where once a month we gather to share our fears, insecurities and encouragement as we walk down this winding writerly road. This month, the question of the month is how we […]

Celebrate the Small Things

Happy Friday! How was your week? I had a fairly productive one. I’ve made definite plans to go visit relatives in Canada who I’ve never met before. Depending on the how the Fall elections go here in the States, I may just ask about moving there permanently. (Just kidding!) My other major accomplishment this week […]

Celebrate the Small Things

This is Friday and that means it is time to Celebrate the Small Things, as part of a weekly blog hop led by Lexa Cain. This week, I have to be honest – I am exhausted. Between the 4th of July and my birthday and a couple other things I’m just simply wrung out – […]
