Happy Insecure Writer's 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!
Can you believe we're through the 1st quarter of 2021? And more than a year into the covid pandemic? Time flies when we're having fun...or not. I received my 2nd covid vaccine and although it's not been two weeks (this Friday) yet, I have seen my grandchildren in person and gotten much needed hugs. Many states are opening up vaccines to anyone 16+. I hope you/they take advantage. If you're interested in my weird take on the vaccine, check out my post on Paranormal Romantics. I hope you get a chuckle.
Writing (other than blogs) continues to be a challenge. I hope next month I'll be able to be more positive.
On to this month's optional question.
Are you a risk-taker when writing? Do you try something radically different in style/POV/etc. or add controversial topics to your work?
Definitely. I'm an eclectic reader--science fiction romance, cozy mysteries, action/adventure, romantic suspense, historical fiction, even a little biography. So, in my writing, I love to delve into something different. In most of my writing, I stick to 3rd person point-of-view. In my cozy mystery Alex O'Hara PI series, I use 1st person pov. Most mysteries are. I love that. My whacky sense of humor comes out. I used 1st person pov in my one foray into middle grade fiction, a Science fiction adventure. It seemed appropriate for the genre. I use what works best, for the genre and for me.
I hope everyone has a great month. Stay safe. I'll be around visiting today, this week, and probably well into the month. Fun!
