9 Things to Do On a Blogging Break And Why

Continue 2017 Write

Hi everyone!

I’m writing this post to say my sorta-goodbye. I say sorta, because I’ll still be posting for IWSG, the first Wednesday of the month. So at least the blog won’t have too many tumbleweeds going by.

IWSG & Blogging Break

Insecure Writers Support Group New Badge

It’s that time again. It’s the first Wednesday of the month and my fellow blogging writers and I are doing it again. This writing journey is not easy but Commander Peter Quincy Taggart said it best: “Never give up. Never surrender.” And thanks goes to ninja extraordinaire Alex Cavanaugh for creating this support community. So we can do just that. For ourselves and each other.

To find out more about the group and/or maybe even sign-up, click on the badge above.  And don’t forget to check out today’s co-hosts: Nancy Gideon, Tamara Narayan, Liesbet @ Roaming About, Michelle Wallace, and Feather Stone!

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

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

National Poetry Month Update and Ideal Beauty

As you know National Poetry Month is around the corner. In six days to be exact.

Every year I do a little something special to celebrate. And this year is no different. Although I’m less organized than in previous years, I’m featuring the poetry of four astounding female poets, one poetess a week.

Until then, here’s a poem I’ve written and plan to include in my second poetry book,”Ideal Beauty.”
