Fresh Eyes #IWSG

It’s the first Wednesday of the month, and we all know what that means… It’s Insecure Writer’s Support Group Day! With everything that’s going on with my personal life, you’d think I wouldn’t have time to be an insecure writer. Alas, that’s not the case. I mentioned a few weeks ago that I had finally…

One Million Words #IWSG
