Hello and welcome to the monthly meeting of the
Insecure Writers Support Group(IWSG) blog hop!
|Internet Writers Support Group Blog Hop|
First Wednesday of every month.
What is IWSG? Founder of the Insecure Writer’s Support Group and author Alex J Cavanaugh explains the group's purpose is "to share and encourage. Writers can express doubts and concerns without fear of appearing foolish or weak. Those who have been through the fire can offer assistance and guidance. It’s a safe haven for insecure writers of all kinds!" You're invited to become a member of this supportive group.
The group blogs the first Wednesday of every month. The list of bloggers is always available so you can hop around to the author blogs filled with humor, advice, and thought-provoking topics on writing and publishing. You can find the list of participants at Alex's IWSG page.

I just returned from two weeks of roaming around the deserts, mountains, and rocks of the Southwest USA. What a completely different experience from my life in green, tree-laden, lake-rich Michigan. The wide open vistas, sands, dwarf bushes, and cacti were never in my life except when I watched cowboys like Roy Rogers and Rex Allen race across the movie screen when I was a little kid. Loved all those movies, but never imagined I would ever visit the movie locations.

Now I'm home and tapping on the keyboard filled with eagerness to get down all the ideas I thought about while riding hours and hours in our little rental car from one destination to the next. We put on 2400 miles on this trip and that doesn't count the plane ride from Michigan to Las Vegas!!
So, at this moment, I'm not feeling insecure about my writing, but fired up to get to it! How about you? Does taking time away from the keyboard (or pen and paper) inspire your writing projects? I'd love to read your thoughts on this. Thank you for stopping in.

It is so important to take a break. I find it does inspire the muse and I'm planning a trip in the middle of the month to the beach for such a purpose. Can't wait to hear about your ideas! Congratulations on Deadly Undertaking!
What an amazing trip, JQ. The landscape certainly looks inspiring. So glad you came home brimful of ideas. I can't wait to hear all about them!
I'm glad you're back and raring to go. :-)

Good for you, Rolanda. Enjoy the beach!
Helena--the landscape from a distance is awesome, but when one actually drives/walks out to peer down into the Grand Canyon, it is dizzying. I was actually afraid of falling in even with the guard rails. Scary but magnificent!
Thanks, Anna. Raring to go, but first things first. Laundry, housekeeping, garden veggies prepped. THEN I'll settle down into a writing time. Oops, forgot the grands are coming. Life is good.
I envy your trip to the Southwest. I miss living in Albuquerque. Nothing more beautiful than high desert.
As someone who moved from Michigan to the Tucson, AZ area when she retired 5 years ago, I can certainly see why you enjoyed your southwestern adventure. I love my mountain vistas and Sonoran desert lifestyle. My MI friends love visiting me here during the winter and going home with a tan!
Welcome back and glad to hear you enjoyed your trip. Enjoyed the pictures.
Happy IWSG Day
I love the feeling of being fired up. Happy for you. Deadly Undertaking sounds great. Hope sales go thru the roof.
Hi Diane, I would love to see the desert in bloom. What a beautiful sight that would be.
Hello Elizabeth. I'm sure Michiganders would love the sun in the winter. I think that would be the best time to visit. We ran into a lot of 3 digit temps during our time there. Glad you love the area so different from Michigan landscapes.
Thanks, Joylene. Now if I can just corral all these ideas and enthusiasm, I'll be happy! Thank you for stopping by.
I'm glad you're fired up! Breaks definitely help creativity.
Even when I go on vacation, I usually take my iPad with me. There is something about being in a new location that kicks off my thinking. Sentences dart across my mind or sometimes whole paragraphs and I need to write them down before I forget them. Another thing is that I dream when I am away on a different location and I like to write my dreams down immediately.
That looks like a fun trip! I've never been to your area, but I've been to Vegas enough times for family reunions. It's hot and dry with way too many people for me. But it's fun to see again every once in a while.
Hope your sale goes well!
Thanks, Tyrean. Glad you stopped by.
Pat, that's a great idea to use the ipad. I have a little notebook to scribble in, but my ideas come while we are driving and I get sick if I try to read or write while moving. sigh...so I try to remember to write it down later...or at least jot a note. I never thought about having different dreams in a different location. Interesting.
Hi Loni, Vegas is not one of my favorite places to go, but since we flew in and out of there, we did spend a small amount of time. First time we'd been to the Fremont St. Experience. What a bunch of weird people there...They probably thought we were weird too!
