IWSG

It’s time for another Insecure Writers Support Group. These last few weeks have been very crazy. We’ve had birthdays, a book release, health issues, appointments, NaNoWriMo to name a few. The support of my friends, family, & fans/readers have been overwhelming. You guys completely and totally rock. For today’s installment of IWSG I’d like to share a few quotes/sayings that really inspire me. They remind me that I’m not alone. I have support. And when things are rough, I will remain on solid ground through it all. “You can’t let praise or criticism get to you. It’s a weakness to[…]

Insecurity

Alex has this monthly gig on his blog called Insecure Writer’s Support Group. It’s pretty awesome. A bunch of writers and authors get their blogs together to keep the encouragement going. I’ve got a new release coming out October 15th. And yesterday was my cover reveal. So, I’m feeling all…Will people like it? Will people buy it? Will they throw virtual eggs at my post? But I can’t worry about that. I write because I love to. I donate a portion of all my proceeds to cancer research and awareness. And I love to encourage new and upcoming writers and[…]

The Insecure Writer’s Support Group

Thanks to Alex J Cavanaugh for this monthly meme.   Writing is a crazy journey filled with ups, downs, curves and cliffs. I leapt off a couple of cliffs recently when it comes to the writing world.  Awaited released May 1st: It’s my sophomore release–that’s nerve wracking in itself–not to mention the thoughts that roared through my head on release day. “Will people like it more/less than Wasteland?” “Will it flop?”…you get the drift.  Prelude to Darkness released May 7th: As if ONE release wasn’t enough…a little short story released as well. It’s Wasteland point five. A prequel to book one.  ***bites[…]

Insecure Writer’s Support Group

Thanks, Alex, for hosting this round of Insecure Writer’s Support Group. I have to say, Alex is one of the most supportive people out there. If you don’t follow his blog, head over there now.  You won’t be sorry.  I found this AWESOME quote the other day and thought it would be perfect for today’s post. And really, it applies to anyone, not just writers.  “Keep away from people who try to belittle your ambitions. Small people always do that, but the really great make you feel that you, too, can become great.” –Mark Twain Now, doesn’t that quote just[…]

Insecure Writers Support Group

Alex has this cool, monthly post called The Insecure Writer’s Support Group. I love this idea–and not just for writers, either–for everyone. I mean, who couldn’t use an encouraging word, pat on the back, or hug (even cyber hugs). As an author/writer I often worry about things such as who likes my book, who doesn’t, why don’t they–but then I mentally slap myself and remember very key advice I’ve received on this journey: “You can’t please everyone. Not everyone will like you or your writing style.” It’s so true. I know I don’t like every single book I pick up[…]

Insecure Writer’s Support Group

It’s time for another group posting of the Insecure Writer’s Support Group! Time to release our fears to the world – or offer encouragement to those who are feeling neurotic. We post the first Wednesday of every month. I encourage everyone to visit at least a dozen new blogs and leave a comment. Your words might be the encouragement someone needs. ~~~~ Thanks, Alex for starting this fun blog fest. I’m all about support and encouragement to help people through worries and fears. This is my first time participating in this and I wondered what the heck I’d write about. But then[…]
