Twitter Pitch is Coming…

The first Wednesday of every month is officially:

Insecure Writer’s Support Group Day #IWSG

Post your thoughts on your own blog. Talk about your writing doubts and the fears you have or have conquered. Discuss your struggles and triumphs. Offer a word of encouragement for others who are struggling. Visit others in the group and connect with your fellow writer – a good goal is to visit at least a dozen other blogs.

Purpose: To share and encourage. Writers can express doubts and concerns without fear of appearing foolish or weak. Those who have been through the fire can offer assistance and guidance. It’s a safe haven for insecure writers at any stage of writing from beginner to best-seller!

Twitter Pitch is coming! Visit the Insecure Writers Support Group Website for more information! If you are a writer or blogger this website is one of the best. There is SO much information!

Optional #IWSG Question for July: What is one valuable lesson you’ve learned since you started writing?

I would say the most valuable lesson I’ve learned is to treat my writing like a job not a hobby and to respect my editors and appreciate that they are doing their job and their knowledge will only make my writing better.

Summer Slow Down

Here in the Philadelphia area summer officially starts for us on the 4th of July. It’s when the temperature starts to get into the 90’s and stays really warm at night. This is no doubt my favorite time of the year.

It’s also my least productive time of year especially as far as writing. I just want to sit by the water and daydream. I want to sleep in and take naps. I want to take long walks with the grandkids.

This was my office for 8-days last month. Not much writing got done but there was a lot of daydreaming…

I promised I would never be that writer that allowed her blog to suffer because she got so busy with other writing stuff. I’m not proud that I’ve become that writer.

As writers we need to cut ourselves some slack and allow time for a bit of daydreaming. It’s necessary to replenish our creative wells.

The answer for us creative types is finding a reasonable balance.

My plan is to get up early and write. No social media, no email and no phone just me and my word count mission. I can balance this out with a well deserved afternoon nap without feeling guilty.

How do you stay on track with your writing and other goals over the summer?

Happy Writing,

Doreen

Are You Ready for the A-Z Challenge?

WRITING WEDNESDAY

It is almost time for the annual A-Z Blogging Challenge and you will definitely need to go to the website to catch up! There are a few major changes this year.

So what exactly is the A-Z Blogging Challenge?

Can you post every day except Sundays during this month?  And to up the bar, can you blog thematically from

A toZ?

Most of the time if you subtract Sundays from April, you then have 26 days–one day for each letter of the alphabet.  When April 1st lands on a Sunday you begin on that day which will be the only Sunday you would post during that month’s challenge.

        Using this premise, you would start beginning April First with a topic themed on something with the letter A, then on April second another topic with the letter B as the theme, and so on until you finish on April thirtieth with the theme based on the letter Z.  It doesn’t even have to be a word–it can be a proper noun, the letter used as a symbol, or the letter itself.  The theme of the day is the letter scheduled for that day.

There you have it. My theme this year is Writing, Publishing and Marketing because my next book, Realize Your Writing Dreams will be releasing this summer! I hope you will accept the challenge.

For more info on the challenge visit the official web site:

Happy writing,
