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!

So what’s going on with me?

Well, I almost scared myself shitless. I thought last week Wednesday was IWSG day and nearly had a panic attack that I hadn’t wrote and scheduled a post. Imagine my relief and surprise that I worried over nothing.

Character All Star Edition

This slideshow requires JavaScript.

Okay, I’ve done character interviews in the past. But for the first time ever, I’m having a character all-star edition a-la reunion style!

What do I mean by that? Well, if you like watching reality TV shows, then you’d know that after the season they usually have a reunion episode.

Today’s post is kind of like that. Except the reunion is with the characters from my work in progress novels, Harbingers of El Tinor, Nadia the Fire Witch, Dreaming of You and The Soul Traveler.

So….

How is everyone doing?

GREAT!

My 2017 Writing Plan

begin-2017-write-2-0

 In 2015 I’d created a writing plan for 2016 that went against my nature, the nature of being a slow writer. In some ways it did work.

I started revising my NaNoWriMo 2015 novels Dreaming of You and The Soul Traveler. Had another successful National Poetry Month.  And my first blog tour for my poetry chapbook Can You Catch My Flow? Finally took my mythic fantasy work in progress, Harbingers of El Tinor, off of hiatus for NaNoWriMo 2016.

Yet my ultimate goal for 2017 is to finally add the greatest words in the dictionary at the end of my work in progress. “The End.” And with 2016 nearing it’s end, it’s safe to say that segmenting the year in quarters for my WIP doesn’t work of me. As Douglas Adams said, “I love deadlines. I like the whooshing sound they make as they fly by.”

on a blogging break

Now wait a minute…aren’t am I supposed to be on a blogging break?! So what am I doing posting and blogging today? It’s not Monday nor is it 8am, the usual blog post schedule.
