IWSG, Persistence & Celebrations!

 

Insecure Writers Support Group New Badge

Holy Moly it’s June already?! Well Happy IWSG Day! It’s the first Wednesday of the month. A day for us writers to come together in the blogosphere, sharing the highs the lows of our writing journeys. As a writer,  we’re often in our own bubble. Thanks goes to ninja extraordinaire, Alex Cavanaugh, for creating the Insecure Writer’s Support Group. So that we can come out of those bubbles and reconnect with each other.

Our Twitter hashtag and handle are #IWSG and @TheIWSG.

Don’t forget to check out today’s awesome co-hosts: JH Moncrieff, Madeline Mora-Summonte, Jen Chandler, Megan Morgan, and Heather Gardner!

9 Things to Do On a Blogging Break And Why

Q&A Interview with Author Michele Berger

 

Hi everyone! Today I’m introducing fellow Shewrites member, Michele Berger on her first ever interview on my blog. She has a new novella coming out, so let’s show her some love.

Hi Michele!

What is the book about?

What if a visit to the salon could kill you? What if a hair product harbored a deadly virus? My sci-fi novella, Reenu-You chronicles five women in the 1990s who find themselves yoked together coping with the spread of a mysterious virus. Reenu-You allows me to play with several topics: the social and political meanings of hair, female friendships and viruses. Continue reading

Happy IWSG Day! What’s going with me this month?

Well, I’m preparing for my much needed blog break. But don’t worry, I’ll still pop up back into society for IWSG. Even have a blog post or two that I couldn’t not blog about during my break. Until then, I have two more official posts in May before I go on break.
