|Deadly Undertaking by J.Q. Rose|
I didn't realize how much fun it would be to co-host the Insecure Writers Support Group blog hop with L.G. Keltner Denise Covey Sheri Larsen Chemist Ken Michelle Wallace
Over 200 bloggers participated in the blog hop. I only visited about 60 writers, so far. My IWSG blog post for the day exploded with comments! Alex J. Cavanaugh is the force behind this huge event. Find out all about the IWSG monthly support group at Alex's IWSG page and visit the IWSG page for lots of writing tips.
One thing I never planned on when getting into this business of writing was the online friends I would make. People I never have met face-to-face, and yet, I feel very close to them. What a blessing that is.
I also didn't count on the support and guidance writers offer to other writers. Competition doesn't seem to exist, only the honest desire that each writer succeed. For example, I put together an e-book with writing tips from 15 romance and mystery authors. They were excited to have the opportunity to help other writers. We were all mystery and/or romance writers in this e-book and could be considered in competition for each others' readers. But instead, we all pitched in to help someone else to find an easier path to publication.
