Today is our monthly installment of Insecure Writers Support Group. I had almost forgot to post. Bad me.
But before I get to that, just a couple of things:
Don’t forget to head on over to Night Owl Reviews and play the Full Moon Halloween scavenger hunt as there are some awesome prizes to be had! It runs through October 31st. Here’s how it works:
1) Visit the sponsor’s website and find the blurb for the book listed next to their name on the entry form.
2) Read the sentence next to their name and find the missing words using the blurb.
3) Write down your answer on a piece of paper. This is to prevent you from losing your answers and you can play at your leisure.
4) Complete the entry form and submit!
And if you look in the Quick Links and Featured Prizes spot, there is a ‘print a fill in the blank question list’.
And Christine Wall has a new release out today from Soul Mate Publishing:
In 2050 the city of Washington, D.C. is a very different place. Riddled with crime, the brave detectives fight criminals, terrorists, and a phenomenon that threatens to destroy the world–The Fog. All consuming and relentless it devours people and buildings, a natural anomaly with the destructive strength of multiple tornados.
Or is it? For Detectives Lainey Turner and Jack Callahan their relentless pursuit of a terrorist named Damian leads them into a mystery that will change their future forever. Brought together by hate but destined for love, these soul mates are forced into an impossible situation; to sacrifice their future to save the world from Damian and The Fog.
Sounds pretty awesome to me!! Congratulations on your release Christine!
Now onto IWSG:
My personal life has taken another huge turn. I’m not very impressed, but everything happens for a reason. Even if I don’t know what the heck that reason might be. My husband and I have officially separated and I don’t think there is any ‘working things out’ this time. And I have decided to disassociate myself from the shop. So that leaves me with looking for a job. Which I’d already started doing before this all went down. It leaves me being a single parent, not only to my son, but also my grandbaby. Luckily I have a good friend and family to help out if needed.
All of this leaves me with some spare time while scouring for employment to work on my writing. And I’ve found myself throwing myself into it completely….emotions and all. I wonder if that’s a good thing or not. Some might say it could be therapeutic.
But, I don’t want the quality of my work sucking wind because I’m going through all these changes in my life. I suppose it could enhance my writing. Some great well known authors wrote their best stuff while going through whatever suffering it was. Could I be that lucky?
Maybe it could be that is the reason for going through all this stuff. It sure is making me reexamine every aspect of my life and where I want to go from here.
But, I’m strong. I’ll make it one way or another. Down the bumpy road I go…..
