Insecure Writer Support Group November 2015

Hey y'all! How's your month going so far? Can you believe it's almost Thanksgiving? Where has the year gone? Wow.

Welcome to my monthly support meeting. Hi! My name is Talynn and I'm insecure about my writing.

This month, I'm participating in NanoWriMo, but I didn't sign up with a cabin on site. It'll be the first time in FIVE years I haven't joined a cabin. (UPDATE: As I'm sure everyone knows...Cabins are for Camp Nano, but during November, you sign up and simply tag a few writing buddies. This year, however, I didn't know anyone who's participating. I did go ahead and sign up. Maybe it'll help me keep track of my progress!)
I usually enjoy the cheering and the updates from other participants. But this year, I didn't have anyone I knew personally, and I felt a little weird being in a cabin of strangers and laying out my book with others who may not really care, just because they don't know me.

But I'm participating, and writing, and loving my characters and story so far. We'll see how it goes.

I've been querying, but I'll be taking break from that while I write this new story, work on edits and prepare for the upcoming holidays and family time. We'll be heading back to Kentucky for the winter, so I plan to enjoy my family while there and enjoy being HOME until spring.

Well, that's it for this month, beautiful guys and dolls! See you next time!

While you're out visiting, be sure and stop by and say hi!!


  1. Sorry you're not in a cabin. Good luck with NaNo!

    1. Thanks Alex. Thing is, I goofed! Cabins are for camp nano and during November, you simply tag a writing buddy. Still, I didn't know anyone to tag this year:)

    1. Thanks! I may not finish this year, butI'm sure going to try.

  3. Writing in a cabin with other writers sounds awesome.

    I am planning on going to a writers' retreat this summer. But a cozy cabin sounds event better.


    1. I love the idea of writing retreats and having someone to cheer you as you write. I think it also helps with accountability and writer's block.

  4. I did Nano one year, and I don't remember joining the cabin you speak of. You can probably make connections with others on social media. Good luck!

    1. Oops! I'm thinking about Camp Nano. For NanoWrimo, it's tagging buddies.For Camp Nano, you sign up to cabins!

  5. Good luck with NaNo! One person in my local writing group didn't join a cabin during the last Camp, since she came on board so late (and still wrote like 75K within two weeks) and couldn't figure out how to get into either of the cabins our group had. I was in another cabin entirely.

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

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.
