#IWSG – GENRES AND WRITING FOR PROFIT

Hello all! It’s the first Wednesday of the month and we know what that means:

IWSG-badgeIt’s time for another meeting of the Insecure Writers Support Group – #IWSG.

My hero, the amazing Ninja Captain Alex J. Cavanaugh founded this group and it has become a safe haven if you are an insecure writer.

Purpose: To share and encourage. Writers can express doubts and concerns without fear of appearing foolish or weak.

 

The awesome co-hosts for the February 7 posting of the IWSG are Stephen Tremp, Pat Garcia, Angela Wooldridge, Victoria Marie Lees, and Madeline Mora-Summonte!

So, I missed last month’s posting. Again. After being culled from the previous list I swore I wouldn’t miss any posts once I ‘re-upped’. I have work to do in that department. I let so many factors, like health and life, get in the middle of my blogging. I miss it terribly. I started this blog about a year and a half after my bleed and it was my lifeline. It was my sanity in an otherwise cruel (what I thought) existence. I ‘met’ so many wonderful people and formed great online friendships. I miss that so much. 

I’ll be writing a post on My Miracle Life at some point later this week about things that are going on. I see a light at the end of a long tunnel, but that’s another post.

I don’t want anyone to think I’ve forgotten about them because I haven’t. Just know I’ve missed you all.

February 7 question – What do you love about the genre you write in most often?   

That’s a tough question to answer since I enjoy all types of genres and always find myself dabbling in a variety. I haven’t written any stories or novels recently. I have my one novel that’s about 80% completed and in rough draft form and some unfinished short stories. Of course, the stories rejected in the past don’t count. I have a few of those. 😦

I have, however, been writing for a site that pays for my work. It’s not much, but it gets me writing and keeps me focused and responsible. If there are any new writers looking to make a few dollars, the site is called Textbroker. You can sign up and they will ask you for a writing sample. Once reviewed, you will get a star rating. The higher the stars, the more you get paid. Easy-peasy.

By the way, today is my fifth anniversary with WordPress! How the time flies.

Have an awesome IWSG day!!

  1. Hi Eva! Happy anniversary! I write for Textbroker too. Small world! They’re one of a few in my rotation that I write for. I agree it’s helpful to be able to write in a way where you get paid even a little. Helps boost the confidence. I also write on BlogMutt and a few other places, including Copify where I just got started. In case you are ever looking to branch out. They all have their ups and downs.
