Happy Insecure Writers Support Group Day. IWSG is the brainchild of Ninja Captain Alex J. Cavanaugh.
Purpose: To share and encourage. Writers can express doubts and concerns without fear of appearing foolish or weak. Those who have been through the fire can offer assistance and guidance. It’s a safe haven for insecure writers of all kinds! Thanks, Alex, for starting this group and keeping it going. We are rockin' the neurotic writing world!
Thank you to this month's awesome co-hosts: T. Powell Coltrin, Victoria Marie Lees, Stephen Tremp, Renee Scattergood, and J.H. Moncrieff!
Happy New Year! I love January. The holidays are over. Our son and grandson were born this month so we still have celebrating to do. It's not just a new month it's a new year. Yay! A new beginning! A new start or starting over. Best of all, this year started with Hubs' valve replacement. God certainly blessed us and the doctors at Meijer Heart Center in Grand Rapids as they did a TAVR (transcatheter aortic valve replacement) which meant no open heart surgery. Hubs (and the docs) did so well he came home the next day. He looks and feels so much better. Thank you to everyone who sent healing thoughts and prayers.
This month's optional question. What started you on your writing journey? Was it a particular book, movie, story, or series? Was it a teacher/coach/spouse/friend/parent? Did you just "know" suddenly you wanted to write?
More the last one. My kids were getting ready to go off to college. My "job" of caring for them and volunteering for their activities was ending. It was my turn to do what I wanted. I'd written fan fiction with my girlfriend in high school. (At the time, we didn't know that's what it was called.) Somehow, I got away from writing until much later. I wish I'd started sooner--gotten in on the 80s bandwagon when publishers were craving romantic fiction. But then I wouldn't have enjoyed the life I had. And the experiences.
What started you on your writing journey? I'm eager to find out.
