ISWG Feburary Post

Hey all!

I'm sharing this month, with a happy smile on my face. No, no good news as of yet, but for the first time in a long while, I'm not insecure about my writing.

Of course, I still have times when I think I may never be published, but I've learned so much about publishing, writing, and growing as "ME" that I can honestly admit:

I'm happy right where I am.

So many people go through life wishing they had this, or lived here, or was more like someone else, they miss the wonderful life granted them.

Stop wishing for the green grass on the other side of the road and be happy where you are, with who you are!!

What about you, beautiful guys and dolls? How are you feeling this month?
Any good news to share?

Leave a comment, PLEASE!!

  1. Well said! If you can't be happy with who you are and where you're at, you won't be happy with more.

  2. You just have to tackle each day as it comes. It's a difficult craft we're trying to master, and the setbacks can be daunting. But the progress is often measured in leaps, not inches. So keep pushing and trying every day, because you never know when you're going to take your next big jump. :)

  3. That's wonderful that you're feeling content right now.

    They might say the grass is greener elsewhere, but once someone gets to that "elsewhere," they might still find reasons to be dissatisfied.

  4. YES! You're a kindred spirit. Yes, I have doubts as well, but I'm so thankful for where I am right now.

  5. Yes, be thankful for who you are and where you are. All writers must feel insecure at times. I sometimes think I gave up too easily since I never bothered to send my recent book to an agent. I just put it on Amazon as an e-book. That suits me at the moment.
    Having doubts is not such a bad thing. I would say it's better than being super-confident and then being knocked back. Go for it gradually and I'm sure you'll find your way.

  7. Hello from IWSG,

    Thank you for your joyful post. This month is good for me. My day job got better. I finally quit fighting with my muse. Life is looking up. Now if only it'd warm up a bit. I'm freezing my toes off in Michigan.

Friday's post

Hey all:) I'm taking today and this weekend off. A very, VERY dear, sweet, and close friend of my family passed away this week. And we just got word that his wife's brother, (whom I love like a mother) died last night. So she is dealing with the death of her husband and her brother. Enjoy your weekend, my friends, and hold those you love close. You never know when they will be gone. I will return on Monday, and will have workshop classes every day next week.

Writer In Motion CP feedback

Hey beautiful guys and dolls! Here it is! My CP feedback edited story. Had a hard time with this, but I hope it makes sense. I've got a post I'm working on I plan to put up after Thanksgiving. Here ya go. Enjoy... Every morning I wake to carnival day.  Today, though, I have my key. If I don’t use it before midnight, my way of escape will gone. It’s a silver key with a twisted metal handle, a sapphire stone half moon and engraved stars. There’s a tiny inscription on the moon, but it’s so small, I’ve never been able to read it.I’ve always kept mine in my jewelry box, but today, I string it on a ribbon and tie it around my neck. My two best friends will be wearing theirs, too, and I wonder how they will escape this carnival of dreams. “What’s it for?” Cress asks as we stand in line for the swings. I run my fingertips over the entire silver surface. “I don’t know. It belonged to my grandmother,” I say. “Whatever.” She shrugs her shoulder in a dismissive way. “Have
