#IWSG - November - Stuffed w/ IWSG News!!



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. We encourage everyone to visit at least a dozen new blogs and leave a comment. Your words might be the encouragement someone needs.

The awesome co-hosts today are Ellen @ The Cynical Sailor JQ Rose Ann V. Friend and Elizabeth Seckman!

November 7 optional question - How has your creativity in life evolved since you began writing? 
 
***
 
It's been a cold and rainy fall so far. I'm hoping things dry out soon so we can pick up all these leaves before the dreaded 'S' word. *shudders* I hate the 'S' word.
 
The elections may be over, but it's still scary out there. Remember to be kind to yourself. Take a break from the constant barrage of news and social media. Be kind to others. Remember we're all just people, not opinions.

  1. I'm just glad all the election commercials are over.
    Snow doesn't scare me. Bring it on.

  2. In the last month or so, it only just started getting cool where I live. Maybe you should move south (another S word); in Atlanta, we only get "s" once or twice a year. And it shuts down the city so we all get an "s" break. Don't you think that would be nice? Not having to go to work or school when there is "s" in town… ;)

  3. Snow shuts down our town, too. So at least you could just stay home and enjoy it.

  5. I'm not ready for the 's' word either. I just got my fall colors a week ago, lol!

  6. They already had snow in my town in New Hampshire. I very wisely chose NOT to post any pictures of me on a sunny, warm beach that day. May you get some drier weather soon!

    I always intend to do the IWSG Instagram challenges...and then forget.

  11. I'm sick of the wet, rainy fall too. I'm almost wishing for snow to cover up the mud.

  13. One of my earliest memories is the magic of seeing snow falling out of the sky. I still feel that way. But to my husband it is the dreaded S word. He's already hanging out in front of the fireplaces and exclaiming, "I hate winter!" Your advice to "Be kind to others" is important at this difficult time in our country. Unfortunately, it seems to be getting scarier. Each of us has to chose to be kind and act on it. Take care, Heather.

  14. We've got our Indian summer still rockin in San Francisco. It's sure to end soon though. "The coldest winter I ever had was a summer in San Francisco."- Mark Twain
    But did he really say that? Cool post.

  15. The dreaded "S" word came here today. Not enough to stick but still... Lots of great stuff happening. Happy Writing.

  16. I'm one of the silly folks that likes the snow. And I'm glad all the election ads are over too. Every little kind act matters. :) Have a lovely week.
