Blurble Blurble #IWSG

It’s the first Wednesday of the month. That means it’s Insecure Writer’s Support Group day! What has me insecure today? Well, for one, my blurb is never good enough for me. Last week, I talked about my blurb. I’ve redone it again with some help from Elizabeth Seckman. She’s the ruler of the broken. He’s…

I’m Missing Something #AmEditing

I’ve been working my way through Isto, listening to the chapters through my text-to-speech program. One thing I’ve noticed is the sheer number of missing words I’ve come across that my eyes just skim over. Take this example. Five different people besides me have read it and no one noticed:     Cameron threw himself to his…

A Bit of Me #IWSG

It’s the first Wednesday of the month, meaning it’s time for the Insecure Writer’s Support Group! What has me insecure this month? Honestly, not that much. My rewrite of my prologue passed critique group approval, and I’m halfway through rewriting my big battle scene. One of my fellow critiquers commented that my story is like…

A Daunting Task Ahead #IWSG

It’s the first Wednesday of April, and as with every first Wednesday, it’s Insecure Writer’s Support Group day. I got feedback on Isto last week. On Tuesday, I had a sit-down with a beta reader who’s been with me since the first terrible draft of Thanmir War. She went over her notes for Isto, including…

Getting Creative #IWSG

Every month on the first Wednesday, the Insecure Writer’s Support Group gathers across the bloggosphere to express our insecurities and encourage others. Today is that day! When it comes to writing this year, I’m not bounding through the progress. But that’s because my primary personal push has been exercise and fitness. That’s led to using…

Welcome to 2019 #IWSG

That first Wednesday of the month came quickly this year. I’m still recovering from my “vacation” (read: 12 days of house cleaning and full-time kid watching), so I don’t have a whole lot to say other than it’s nice to be able to sit down and type something again. Writing progress has been zilch and…
