It’s Another Meeting for the Insecure Writers..

Insecure Writer’s Support Group

It’s time for another group posting of the Insecure Writer’s Support Group! Time to release our fears to the world – or offer encouragement to those who are feeling neurotic. If you’d like to join us, click on the tab above and sign up. We post the first Wednesday of every month. I encourage everyone to visit at least a dozen new blogs and leave a comment. Your words might be the encouragement someone needs.

September Question If you could choose one author, living or dead, to be your beta partner, who would it be and why?

What a tough question! After giving it some thought, I would love to meet and have a conversation with Nora Roberts. Having her beta read for me would have me so nervous, but what an honor it would be.

Nora has written more than 200 romance novels! She also writes under the pen names, J.D. Robb, Jill March, and Sarah Hardesty. Can you imagine having your novels on the NYT Best seller list for 861 weeks, 176 weeks in the #1 spot.

She write’s eight-hours a day, even when she’s on vacation. That’s impressive! Writing mostly trilogies, Nora doesn’t write from an outline but creates a short first draft with all the elements of the story and then adds texture and color in her second draft, something I’d love to learn more about from her.

Because she doesn’t care for flying she does most of her research online.

We are both baseball fans so I imagine the sport would be part of our conversation.

Which author would you like to have as a beta reader?

My Happy Place..

It’s been such a pleasure working on Katie’s book release team!

Katie Fehlinger spent 15 years weather anchoring and reporting for tv and radio at both the national and local level. She’s now an author, public speaker, content creator, and will forever be a DIY junkie.

Every morning on my drive to work I listened to Katie discuss the weather, Penn State, and all sorts of other fun things with my favorite morning radio talk show host.

At lunch time I watched her on TV.

Catch the sparks you need to conquer writer’s block, depression, and burnout!

When Chrys Fey shared her story about depression and burnout, it struck a chord with other writers. That put into perspective for her how desperate writers are to hear they aren’t alone. Many creative types experience these challenges, battling to recover.

Monday Mention

Congratulations to friend and debut author Kelly Deeny on the release of The Spirit Projector I hope you enjoy getting to know her, she’s fabulous.

Kelly obtained her B.A. in English from Temple University, and has worked in copywriting/editing and library services. Her love of the arts led to the creation of multiple blogs and writers’ group facilitation. When not writing, Kelly’s either binge-watching a new British TV series, attending a Broadway musical, or spending time with her nieces and nephews. When Kelly grows up, she wants to adopt a husky and travel – maybe not at the same time.
