Hey people. Another month another yada yada yada.
Anyway, I skipped last month's IWSG post because of the A to Z Challenge. I can only do one thing at a time. It was an experience filled with highs and lows, and I'll talk about that on Friday for the Reflections post.
Today marks the one year aniversary of A Creative Exercise. I started this blog because after last year's A to Z Challenge I decided I would give this writing thing a real try.
One year ago today, I started writing my first novel. I'm still writing that novel, because when I started, I had no clue what the hell I was doing. Somehow I thought that novel writing just involved writing about people doing stuff. What stuff and why didn't really matter. (Yes, I have actually read a book or two in my lifetime, but when you're doing it yourself, you find out it's a lot harder than it looks). Well, this last year has learned me good. So, I'm still writing, adding depth to my plot and characters. Maybe by May 1st, 2014 I will be done.
The people I've met through the Insecure Writers Support Group have been a great source of support. Just reading about what other people are insecure about makes me feel like less of a weirdo. So thanks Alex J. Cavanaugh and the whole Insecure Writers Support Group for all that you do.
