Insecure Writers Support Group Wednesday

Insecure Writers Support Group

 

The Insecure Writer’s Support Group is a home for writers in all stages; from unpublished to bestsellers. Our goal is to offer assistance and guidance. We want to help writers overcome their insecurities, and by offering encouragement we are creating a community of support.

The first Wednesday of every month is a blog hop – check out more writer blogs here!

 

 

October 4 question – Have you ever slipped any of your personal information into your characters, either by accident or on purpose?

Part of the fun of writing is exploring what I like and want to know more about, and sometimes that means adding in a bit of what we see around us. I stay away from naming characters after people I know or using obvious traits. What I love about writing is finding inspiration everywhere. Sometimes it’s a funny thing someone says or a super quirky interest. My husband’s elaborate rules on donuts ended up in one of my (unpublished) books where a character is super picky about which donuts she eats. It’s part of her character having expertise on snacking and feeling the need to share this expertise widely.

Today I’m also featuring the first book in the series I’m writing for – the first book is free, called Far From Falling. Isn’t the cover perfect for fall? My release Falling Into Place is coming this fall too, my first foray into self-publishing! Big thanks to everyone in the IWSG community for being a support through the years. I’m so excited to share this accomplishment.

Here’s the link for the free book!

What’s your most anticipated read this fall?
