I did it! #IWSG

I finished my book! Again. For the third time. Kinda. The big revision plan I had for Isto is done (woot!), but as I reread from the beginning to see if all the changes are cohesive, it’s instigated a few more changes. No problem. I can deal with that. But then a member of my…

Five More Chapters #IWSG

Ah, March. The month of so many things, and here we are, already to the first Wednesday. Since it’s Insecure Writer’s Support Group day, I’ll wait until next week to talk about the Colonel’s Challenge results. Today, I’m going to talk about the same thing I talk about every first Wednesday: my book. I’m not…

New Year, Same Focus #IWSG

My goals this year haven’t changed much from previous years: family, fitness, and finishing the dang book. We’ll start with writing, since it’s the first Wednesday of the month making it Insecure Writer’s Support Group day. I’d hoped to finish book 2 of the big book series by the end of last year. That didn’t…

The End Draws Near #IWSG

Wow. Can you believe it’s the last first Wednesday of 2020? Despite all that’s happened this year (earthquakes, pandemic, my mom’s cancer), it still surprises me that in a month, it won’t be 2020 anymore. I’m thankful I’ve been able to keep working to support my family while my husband tends to the kids and…

For only $0.99, you can get 20+ twisted fairytales from multiple authors, including Aldrea’s story Someone Else’s Shoes. I hope you take a moment…

I’ll See You In September #IWSG

It’s the first Wednesday of the month, meaning it’s Insecure Writer’s Support Group Day! Woot! I netted 16K in August toward book 3, which is a decent chunk for me. If you’re wondering (which you probably aren’t) “what about book 2?”, well, I did convince myself that the changes I have planned (and have been…

Life’s Roller Coaster #IWSG

Sheesh! It’s August already and the pandemic turmoil continues. Our school district decided yesterday to delay the start of school and won’t know until the 25th if they’ll do all online or an alternate day plan. The uncertainty of it all is stressful and frustrating, though I’m sure I’m not alone in that. My digital…

Midway Point #IWSG

It’s the first and the first Wednesday of the month, making it Insecure Writer’s Support Group day! Strangely, I’m not insecure. When I started this year, I had high aspirations. I’d stick to intermittent fasting, I’d get regular exercise, and I’d finally finish all my book 2 revisions. Thanks coronavirus. You really screwed up my…
