It’s the first Wednesday of the month and that means Insecure Writer’s Support Group (IWSG) is enjoying its monthly blog fest invented by Alex J. Cavanaugh. IWSG is a safe haven for insecure writers of all kinds!
The awesome co-hosts for the February 7 posting of the IWSG are: Stephen Tremp, Pat Garcia, Angela Wooldridge, Victoria Marie Lees, and Madeline Mora-Summonte!
IWSG Question: What do you love about the genre you write in most often?
My Answer: My genre, memoirs, offer a peep hole into our life in Mexico while living on our sailboat, La Vita. I write to inspire, enlighten, & entertain in a style that makes my readers cry, cringe, & chuckle.
A steady barrage of medical challenges has dogged us from Mexico to France through USA, and back to Mexico. I fear my audience will abandon me if my blog evolves into a medical diary. My solution is to focus on human interest events I experienced.
For example, when Rick was in French hospital and I’m suspicious of a stranger’s offer of help. More recently, help magically appeared as I struggled to control a heavily loaded two-wheel dolly down a steep ramp.
Life is filled with dramatic and heart warming events. It’s exciting to watch for them and I delight sharing them with my readers.
I just read It’s Never Too Late to Make a Fresh Start on IWSG as well as the comments. Wow, what an inspiring post and comments. I’m not the only one that gets stuck when dealing with life-consuming events.
Thank you for visiting and taking time to share your comments. It’s a joy to hear from you and I promise to visit you, too.
UPDATE: Wed Feb 7 @ 8:50am
