It is time for yet another first Wednesday posting of the Insecure Writer’s Support Group (IWSG). If you haven’t already visited some of the writers who participate, check out our amazing co-hosts– Rebecca Douglass, T. Powell Coltrin @Journaling Woman, Natalie Aguirre, Karen Lynn, and C. Lee McKenzie!
The optional question this month is: How do you define success as a writer? Is it holding your book in your hand? Having a short story published? Making a certain amount of income from your writing?
I do define success as holding a physical book in my hand. A physical book has always been part of the reading experience for me, so it is an important aspect of feeling like I achieved my writing goal. Enough money to write full time is part of the long-term goal, but the physical book piece comes first.
Time for some news.
My first story today asks the best question of the day: “Who puts a cow in a Buick?” https://www.huffpost.com/entry/cow-mcdonalds-drive-thru_n_61296373e4b06e5d80cd6449
Yet another volcano story because I heart volcanoes as much as I heart science. https://www.sciencedaily.com/releases/2021/08/210826111724.htm
I leave you with a song. Enjoy, and I’ll see you in seven. https://youtu.be/Q-ejz2RmueE
