And One Became Two #IWSG

It’s the first Wednesday of June. JUNE! We have this month and the year will be half over. What makes me an insecure writer today? The same thing that’s been plaguing me for flippin’ years! Book 2. Or should I say Book 2, divided by 2? Critique partners are amazing. I love them. I have…

May Take A While #IWSG

Happy May everyone! Today, my parents have been married for 48 years. Woot! I hope you join me in wishing them a very happy anniversary. 🙂 I didn’t accomplish much toward my personal goals in April. We had our big launch at work, followed by a frenzy of fixes and tweaks. It didn’t leave much…

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…

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…

We Didn’t Start The Fire #IWSG

IWSG Question of the Month – How are things in your world? If the title did it’s job, then you probably have Billy Joel stuck in your head now. I discussed with my husband the other night about how COVID-19 would make it into a revised version of that song, likely rhymed with quarantine. I’d…

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…

Please let me know if you’re prompted with a CAPTCHA in order to comment. I added a new plug-in to cut down on the amount of spam I get from my contact form, but I don’t want to inconvenience blog interactions. Knock, knock. Who’s there? Britney Spears. Britney Spears who?

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…
