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.

Click the image if you would like to be a part of the #IWSG family. You won’t regret it.

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

The awesome co-hosts for the August 2 posting of the IWSG are Christine Rains, Dolarah @ Book Lover, Ellen @ The Cynical Sailor, Yvonne Ventresca, and LG Keltner!


Unfortunately, I haven’t been blogging for some time. Not exactly news anymore, is it? That’s why I’m thankful for the IWSG because it’s the one thing I look forward to the most. It keeps me blogging at least once a month, or every other month, as has been the case lately. There’s a lot going on (when isn’t there, am I right?) but I’ll save that for my other blog’s post here.

August 2 Question: What are your pet peeves when reading/writing/editing?


As far as pet peeves, I only have one that makes me crazy. It’s having a book inundated with typos and simple grammatical errors. That’s unacceptable in any writing, but more so in published works that people are paying money to read. I can’t begin to tell you how many books I’ve read that needed to be badly overhauled for what should’ve been an easy fix with a decent editor.


Enjoy your IWSG day and let me know your thoughts!
