March IWSG

This is a monthly event started by the awesome Alex J. Cavanaugh and organized by the Insecure Writer's Support Group. Click here to find out more about the group and sign up for the next event.

OMG, I almost forgot about this month's IWSG! That alone tells you what a stressful month February has been. But, but, but, I do have some awesome news to share with the group.

1) My science blog is now on the Huffington Post! Please come say hi, subscribe to the RSS, and give me a cheer because as exciting as this is, it is also extremely unnerving to have my name on such a huge platform.

2) My WIP is moving along, and the characters are finally taking shape (and personality!). As I mentioned in my previous IWSG post, us writers have to face this dichotomy of delivering new stories fast in a highly competitive and fast-changing market, yet it takes time to produce well thought-out characters. So this year my goal has been to let the characters "simmer" in my head so I can get to know them better before I deliver them to the page. So far so good. :-)

3) Three of my favorite images will be part of a collective show in Albuquerque next month, dedicated to Women's Photography. More details to come.

What about you? What awesome news do you have to share?


  1. You have been busy. Congratulations on Huffington and the photo show, that is so awesome. You are inspiring.

  2. Wow, Huffington Post? That is incredible! And awesome about your photos and current project.
    Blame the fact the IWSG snuck up on you on the fact that February is a short month...

  3. That is a major coup! Congratulations on landing on Huffington Post.

  4. Congratulations on Huffington! That's some huge exposure that should be great for you! Huzzah! :-)

  5. Wow, congrats on all the exciting news! That's amazing about the Huffington Post. And I agree about the importance of letting characters simmer, so I'm glad this route has been working out well for you so far! :)

  6. That's awesome news! Congrats.
    I feel you on the writing fast, but needing to take time and let stuff form. It's a tricky balance to find. Not sure I've found mine yet.

  7. My life is nothing like yours. Sorry not much to share, but I do have a new cover :-)

  8. Congrats! That's an amazing credit. It's a hard one about getting well-developed characters in shorter times. I don't really know mine until I see them in action, so the first draft is the simmering time.

  9. thank you all and best of luck to your own endeavors!
