IWSG July 2022 Choice Worlds


Welcome readers, writers, authors, and bloggers!

We’re glad you’re here! It's the First Wednesday of the month; when we celebrate IWSG Day in the form of a blog hop featuring all of the members of the Insecure Writer's Support Group. Founded by author Alex Cavanaugh (Thank you, Captain!) and fostered by like-minded associates, IWSG is a place to share the fabulous views and exciting news that occurs along our fascinating writing journeys. Check out the July newsletter here.  Perusing the many tips and resources offered here is definitely worthwhile and highly rewarding, so pull up a comfy chair, or better yet -  join us!

Our awesome co-hosts for this month's posting of the IWSG are:  J Lenni Dorner, Janet Alcorn, PJ Colando, Jenni Enzor, and Diane Burton!

This month’s optional question is:  If you could live in any book world which one would you choose?

Only one? My first choice (operative word being “world”) would be “Camino Island” by John Grisham. I’d want to be a part of the compelling storyline; peopled with authentic characters I wouldn’t mind knowing, in an ideal coastal setting featuring a charming avantgarde with a dream job. What’s not to like? When the story ended, as they’ve a tendency to do, I’d stay on in a room with a breathtaking view of unyielding storms propelled upon the mainland by an indifferent sea. I’d hang around long enough to watch sea turtles hatch on the beach, along with a couple hundred other spectators.

Before long, I’d have to return to the Sonoran Desert where a 3-day old character named Quinn Quicksilver appeared swaddled in a blanket at dawn one day on a desolate stretch of Arizona highway. Quinn’s story doesn’t involve living in a world so much as an epic journey through one in route to an uncertain future while in search of his unknown past. Who doesn’t enjoy a good adventure now and again?

Can’t wait to read other responses to this month’s optional question!

Until again, be happy, write well!
