It’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 February 3 posting of the IWSG will be Allison Gammons, Tamara Narayan,  Rachel Pattison,  Ann V. Friend  and yours truly!! 🙂

Please take a moment to thank the co-hosts for all their hard work this month. 

I can’t believe January has come and gone and we’re in February already. I usually set goals for the year in January, with a mid-year goal check, and year-end final analysis. I’m starting late this year because the past couple of months have been difficult on a personal level. You can read more about it on my other blog My Miracle Life.

Keeping it short and simple, here are my most important goals for 2016:

  1. Continue writing and submitting stories to contests.
  2. Get back to blogging my regularly scheduled blog posts (which was going so well until everything went haywire)
  3. Dedicate time for guest bloggers
  4. Continue working on my long neglected WIP

What are your goals for this year? Did you accomplish everything you planned to last year? Are you trying anything new or out of your comfort zone?

Jackie Felger from Bouquet of Books and Dani Bertrand from Entertaining Interests founded this great blog hop that has a great group of people with weekly topics that change every month. This week’s topic is:

July 7-11, 2014: In your wip, what is the last line on page 10 and the first Line on page 42? not a writer, then use a book of your liking.

My WIP is tentatively titled: DON’T LOOK BACK

The last line on the current page 10 is:  “…Grace is MY girlfriend, not yours. If you want to swing that way, that’s your business, but get the fuck out of my house!” 

The first line on the current page 42 is:  “…Sex on the Beach, and bring one for my friend too!” She stared at Grace with a shit-eating grin and said,

I say current pages 10 and 42 because I have done so much editing and rewriting that I’m sure I’ll be making more changes by the time I’m done. That’s my addition for this week. I’d be interested in any critiques, good or bad on my sentence structure, wording, grammar, punctuation, or anything else that doesn’t seem right. I know two lines isn’t much, but I’ll take what I can get.

Have a great day everyone!
