IWSG JULY 2016
IWSG has reinstated their question of the month.
July’s 6th question is – What’s the best thing someone has ever said about your writing?
“Hugs. You know that I’ll always be waiting for your next story.”
~Katharina Gerlach Writer of historical fiction, fantasy, science fiction & non-fiction and a Holly Lisle student.
“I see a lot of potential gold sitting in this thread. I’m hoping to see you building it into fiction.”
~Holly Lisle Writer, Teacher & Entrepreneur Said to me in How To Think Sideways writing course 2016 relaunch in the lesson one thread where I posted.
There have been many who have said things that buoy my spirit, encouraged me and made me feel like maybe I can just do this, but these two comments are the most recent. They really made my day.
GYPSY LIVING: MOVING
Our home lease was up at the end of June, so will be moving soon. No idea where going yet. We are aiming to resettle somewhere by 1st of September. I use to think I would like moving because the majority of my life I lived in one area and mainly one location, so the first time I moved it was exciting and 2nd and 3rd times were okay, but now living with “have to move” I hate it!
I miss that stable home feel. I hate that looming worry year to year of where do I go next, and what do I do, and how do I make it happen questions, that are now such a huge part of life. I wanna go home but that sense of home has been absent a long time since my parents passed and the old homestead was torn down.
I’d settle for “feeling settled for the long term.”
Hate moving, Love traveling! Last travel or getaway destination was Key West Christmas 2014.
I’m doing July Camp NaNo. I am in a private cabin with a 11 other Holly Lisle writing students at different stages in their author careers. We actually have two full Holly student cabins. That is 24 people I know NaNoING right along beside me. + My Lake Writer’s NaNo Group also have a cabin, so more authors I know NaNoING. + I was invited to another cabin from an author I met through Linkedin groups who has appeared in my Author Spotlight several times and will be reappearing soon. How awesome is that?
