Wow, October Already? #IWSG

I’m a little stunned that it’s October. I was aware of time passing and all, but dang! Month 10 out of 12 for this year, and I haven’t finished anything. I’ve accomplished a decent amount with book 2 of my big-book series, such as finally figuring out my character, her voice, and making significant edits…

Aligning Events #IWSG

It’s July! Sheesh. Time is zooming by. With it being the first Wednesday of the month, it makes it time for the Insecure Writer’s Support Group. What’s making me insecure this month? Time. Except, not in the way I typically lament it. Sure, I would love a few more hours a day to be able…

It May Be Awesome #IWSG

After months of misery, I’m happy to report that life is AWESOME. Medical problems still persist and my house is a wreck, but writing wise, life is good. Last IWSG had me hoping I could finish chapters 8 and 9 in Isto. I did even better! I had breakthroughs on a character scale, decided to…

Clinging To Optimism #IWSG

It’s the first Wednesday of the month. Though I’m rolling in at a later-than-usual hour, I’m here for another edition of Insecure Writer’s Support Group. I mentioned last month how March shoved my head into the ground. April thankfully gave me a week of reprieve. Of course, I had to curse myself by excitedly telling…

According To Plan #IWSG

Gettin’ It Done #IWSG

My #1 goal in writing this year is to finish Murder Most Fowl. Actually, it’d been my goal to publish it last year. Unfortunately, I couldn’t figure out how to get from one place to the next in the story. Well, throw in an explosion, change the time of day, remove a character from the…

Woe or Whoa? #IWSG

I decided to track down the last time I wasn’t feeling like I was slowly sinking in a sticky mess of overwhelmed craziness. It’s been over six months. HALF A YEAR! Since mid-July of 2016, it’s been illness and injury and mishap around every turn. That leads me to my insecurity. It’s been half a…

Maybe This Will Be The Year #IWSG

They announced the winners of the IWSG anthology this morning. I wasn’t among them, but my analytical side kicked in and I’m pretty sure why my story didn’t make the cut. Genre. It’s a fantasy anthology, and my story had little-to-no hint of the great fantastic. If anything, I’d classify it as supernatural, but there’s…
