The first Wednesday of every month is officially IWSG day. Members post about their doubts and fears, discuss struggles and triumphs, and offer words of encouragement to others who are struggling.
Thanks, as always, to Alex Cavanaugh, founder and Ninja Captain extraordinaire. The awesome co-hosts for the July 3 posting of the IWSG are Renee Scattergood, Sadira Stone, my bud Jacqui Murray (who writes awesome prehistoricals😊) Tamara Narayan and LG Keltner. Thanks folks.
The IWSG monthly question can be found under the IWSG Sign-up tab on the Insecure Writer's Support Group Blog.
The August 7 question-Has your writing ever taken you by surprise? For example, a positive and belated response to a submission you’d forgotten about or an ending you never saw coming?
It wasn't an ending, but I didn't see it coming...I was contacted by an entertainment company inquiring into the availability of film/TV rights for Love, Lattes and Mutants. Of course, that splatted, but it was a nice momentary glow😊
Always the bride’s maid never the bride.

I’d seen Elizabeth Seckman on the IWSG circuit off and on for quite some time but, until recently, I had never read anything she’d written. My loss. She’s an amazing author and tells an equally amazing tale. She is great at character development and worldbuilding. If you enjoy HEAs, I highly recommend her.
