Happy National Author’s Month! While many of us may not be reading that epic novel, in honor or National Novel and Memoir Writing Month, we may well have honed our amazing writing skills on any of the many great resources offered by the Insecure Writers Support Group, founded by Alex Cavanaugh, right here and right now on this first Wednesday of the month, when IWSG members convene through blogging, Facebook and Twitter to talk about whatever is on our writing minds and agendas. See what we’re all talking about here.
And while you’re at it, check out our awesome Co-Hosts:
Did you take part in the IWSG 2017 Anthology contest? In a rare moment of capriciousness, I decided to sign up. And now I’m actually reveling in not being consumed by all that I left on the bank of the creek, which did indeed rise, while I was away indulging my inner-rebel by spending most of the last several weeks – writing! Such a time I had on a daring whim, that I remain undaunted by all that awaits my attention ;-) And today as I soar as a windswept cloud, stretching as if after slumber, I realize how precious are moments stolen and pleasing the gifts, if ever so few, for having observed at all. Every second, every word, and every day was and is well-worth the experience. Thank you, IWSG!
OPTIONAL IWSG Day Question: Win or not, do you usually finish your NaNo project? Have any of them gone on to be published?
Hmm. Well, about that. I’ve never once attempted a NaNo project for fear I’d break a promise to myself. I plan to, one day, complete a project of this proportion. But the dream will have to wait a little while longer ;-)
