Yikes - it's October. Where did the summer go? Time is moving so fast. The first Wednesday of the month is Insecure Writer's Support Group day (IWSG), the brainchild of Alex, the Ninja Captain of the blogosphere: http://www.alexjcavanaugh.blogspot.com
Please check out Alex's blog, if you haven't already, to get the list of awesome members of this supportive group of writers.
I am feeling secure this month. I finished my novel--my first attempt at fiction. It took me five years to write, and I was pretty much kicking and screaming the entire time that I couldn't write fiction. I have to tell the truth here, I needed help with craft technique, and I got it in spades from my writing coach, Mark David Gerson http://www.mdgmedia.com. Without him, I never would have birthed this book. He guided me every step of the way. Many many blessings to you, Mark David. I am so grateful.
My insecurity comes from the next phase of this project--publishing. I have decided that a small press is the best avenue for this novel. One press is reading it now--I'm keeping my fingers crossed. But I am hopeful, even if that doesn't pan out, that I will find a home for this book. And if I don't, I am perfectly willing to self-publish. I'll just need lots and lots of help. And I know I'll find it right here in this loving, supportive, amazing group.
