Welcome to July’s IWSG posting. Yesterday’s fireworks have nothing on the colorful explosions the talented writers of IWSG experience within their brains. Insecurity, although tiring, can be incredibly combustible. If you haven’t been privy to such, click the image above and get transported to an array of blogs by some openly insecure, but talented writers.
Thank you to the wonderful co-hosts this month: Tamara Narayan, Pat Hatt, Patricia Lynne, Juneta Key, and Doreen McGettigan.
The burning question of the month: What is one valuable lesson you’ve learned since you started writing?
All writing is rewriting.
It’s a very simple sentence–a total of four words. But there’s a very powerful truth wrapped up in that simplicity. The totality of the world you’re building, the plot you’re weaving, or the characters you’re breathing life into will eventually coalesce. Whether it is in the first draft or the tenth does not matter, only that they do. And when they do? The brown, sticky stuff you slipped on and tried scraping from your shoe … well, it will be the fertilizer that feeds their growth. 😉
Time for some news.
This first story made me think of just three words: “Run, Forrest. Run!”
Um … I may be on a chasing kick today. I just could not help it. It’s a portable poo chaser. 🙂
I know I posted an article about eclipses last month, but I’m currently obsessed. With them being an element in my current WIP and one coming up soon, I seem to be drawn to anything with the word eclipse in the title. Besides, this proves how badass scientists truly are.
That’s all for this week. See you back here in seven.
