If you're a dreamer, a wisher, a liar
A hoper, a prayer, a magic-bean buyer
If you're a pretender come sit by my fire
For we have some flax-golden tales to spin
Come in...come in...

IWSG

So, it's Insecure Writer's Support Group, and I almost missed it!! I'm posting a twinge late, but I'm getting it done. :)

For those of you who don't know IWSG is hosted by the awesome Alex Cavanaugh. It's a place where, on the first Wed. of every month, insecure writers everywhere come together to cheer each other on or just commiserate about our trials. If you haven't signed up, make sure to add your name to the list!!

Also, be sure to visit this month's co-hosts, Stephen Tremp and Julie Flanders!


Since I'm posting a bit late and, since my last post before this was pretty heavy, I decided to go with the path of cheering up anyone who  might be feeling a little down/insecure today. Just remember, at one point, JK Rowling, Stephanie Meyer and Suzanne Collins were all just beginner writers--the same as you and me!

And now they are big enough that the whole world knows what this means....

And this:

Haha...you guys know I had to include extra Harry Potter stuff, right? Hope this made you smile. Have a great day!!

  4. Not a lottery - it's a blessing.
    Like I read on another post this morning about the movie Ratatouille and "Anyone can cook!" Anyone CAN write.
