Snack Time for the Write Time

When it comes to sitting down and putting pen to paper, or tapping out words on the keyboard so they scrawl blissfully across the computer screen with all the genius you can put behind it, it can require energy replenishment.

What is your favorite go to? Is it fruit?
Or are you a lover of all things chocolate?

IWSG, My Genre & Me

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.

Let’s rock the neurotic writing world!

Our Twitter is @TheIWSG and hashtag #IWSG

Every month, we announce a question that members can answer in their IWSG Day post. These questions may prompt you to share advice, insight, a personal experience or story. Include your answer to the question in your IWSG post or let it inspire your post if you are struggling with something to say. Remember, the question is optional!!!
February 7 question - What do you love about the genre you write in most often?

I LOVE the variety and the journey that comes with fantasy and science fiction. As a kid growing up, reality was always so...well... REAL. It was wonderful to hop into a book and take off to a different realm or a different planet other than my own. I'd always have to face the issues and problems in my REAL LIFE, so it was nice to escape to some place or thing far removed from my norm.

It is just as much fun creating new worlds, spinning a new twist to an old aventure, dreaming up a new language or way of speaking. It is why I enjoy building bridges between here and anywhere imagination takes me.

What about you? What genre do you write most in and what do you love about it?

We're Here to PROMPT You Up!

This is probably very telling about how old I am. I remember sneaking and watching some of the Saturday Night Live shows when I was younger. There were these two guys who were always trying to...

So yeah, that is the inspiraton for this blog title, and I think I will do this regularly, maybe once a month since I mainly post on Wednesdays here.

See this picture?

What is the first thing that comes to mind when you look at it? What is the "first line" you think of if you see a book that has something like this on the cover?

Please comment and share. Inquiring minds -  like mine- want to know :-)

Getting Back into the Writing Life

Stepping back into writing slow and steady has gone better than I thought. Now that I've given myself permission to NOT be so hard on myself, I'm making progress. Some days may not go quite as planned...
But it is okay. Really and truly okay.

What do you do on those days where things don't go quites as planned?
