IWSG: June 2016

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!

Posting: The first Wednesday of every month is officially Insecure Writer’s Support Group day. Post your thoughts on your own blog. Talk about your doubts and the fears you have conquered. Discuss your struggles and triumphs. Offer a word of encouragement for others who are struggling. Visit others in the group and connect with your fellow writer - aim for a dozen new people each time.

You know the person who comments on your blog the day before this month’s IWSG entry is due? Yeah, that’s me. Always.
I leave my comment notifications “unread” all month long, hoping I’ll get an hour of free time to catch up, but time always seems to evade me. Next thing I know, my IWSG reminder pops up for the new month, and I’m in a scrambling panic. Does this ever happen to you?
It leaves me wondering if I’m doing the IWSG an injustice by treating it as a chore (regardless of how much I enjoy it). Should I bow out or keep plodding along? Hmm...
In other news, amidst all of my other contractual obligations, I finally managed to pass the midway point in my earthquake WIP. It’s all downhill from here, baby! (I hope.) This feels like the best work I’ve written to date, so I’m a little excited. 

P.S. The seventeen-year cicadas are everywhere, and it's SO LOUD.


Question of the Week:

What are you working on?
