This post is part of the Insecure Writer’s Support Group, a monthly blog hop set up by the Ninja Captain Alex J. Cavanaugh. It’s a place where writers and bloggers can share their anxieties and insecurities with one another, offer advice and support one another. You can find full details and a list of participants on the Insecure Writer’s Support Group page, and you can also follow us on Twitter at #IWSG.
Happy 2013 my fellow insecure writers. I am usually thrilled to see a year -end and a new one begin but this year was different. It was a great year and 2013 has big shoes to fill. During the very first week of the year I am ready willing and able to fill them. I have big plans for this year and I cannot thank all of you enough for your words of support. I wanted to start the year off sharing with you 2 places other than IWSG that I find very, supportive. I LOVE my friendships with fellow writers but sometimes we need readers, sometimes we have so many thoughts running around loose in our minds that we cannot fill up a page or a blog post. Sometimes we just need to vent, a bunch of little thoughts. Every Friday I am able to do that with Friday Fragments and you are all welcome to stop over and see if you might have a few fragments of your own to let out into the world.
Sorry guys, this next place is just for the ladies and trust me you want us there. J Women on the Verge, is an amazing supportive community of all kinds of women at all different stages of their lives, relationships and careers. They have so much to share. I have made amazing friendships there and have felt so supported by the community and its creator. You are welcome to stop over for a visit and of course, you are welcome to join us.
I am thrilled to be going to North Carolina for a book signing and discussion at the New Hope Commons Barnes & Noble in Durham. If you live near there, please stop by and say hello. If you have friends or family in the area please ask them to stop by and say hello.
Who is already thinking about the A-Z Challenge???
I am looking for a few guest posts for my blog. The subject matter is up to you. If you might be interested please let me know. firstname.lastname@example.org
I cannot think of any better goals for the New Year than these:
“To laugh often and much;
To win the respect of intelligent people and the affection of children;
To earn the appreciation of honest critics and endure the betrayal of false friends;
To appreciate beauty, to find the best in others;
To leave the world a bit better, whether by a healthy child, a garden patch or a redeemed social condition;
To know even one life has breathed easier because you have lived.
This is to have succeeded.”
