So much going on today and around the blogosphere! To start, it's the first Wednesday of the month when writers everywhere come together for a virtual group hug through the Insecure Writer's' Support Group.
Click on the picture above to get to HDQ and see the list of participants. It's a given most writers battle with insecurity regarding their work, right? Right. Or else this group wouldn't exist. But I want you to take this moment right now (yes, now!) to stop and think about what it means to be a writer. To express oneself through word choice. To stir emotion by reaching down deep into the soul and spilling it out on paper (or blog posts.)
If you're a writer, you are truly blessed. You have a talent and skill that no one can ever take away from you. You will always have your words, your poetry, your unique way of seeing the world and people. Even God Himself chose writers to put down his message. His preferred method of reaching generations of people was through prophets who wrote down His inspired word.
We have a gift.
So leave the insecurity aside today and be proud! You are a writer. Let the world hear you ROAR!
Here's some roaring writers right here! Beth Fred and Kelly Hashway are hosting the Sweets Blogfest to share their sweet romance releases. Big congrats to Beth who just signed with her agent! So exciting!
BTW I have a sweet romance posted over on Wattpad. I'm posting chapter by chapter of an old YA romance as I get it re-edited and it's been fun to revisit. If you're on Wattpad click over and follow me and I'll be sure to follow back!
Also, I wanted to mention two very special writers whose stories are making their way around the web. You may have heard of Chad Morris and Bridget Zinn. If not, their stories will touch your heart. Please click over to Elizabeth Seckman's blog for more deets on them. She presented them perfectly and I really hope you stop by to learn more about them.
The fabulous Krystal Wade has her YA book, Wilde's Fire, free today! Check it out by clicking here.
And on the news front, everyone over at Pixie Patrol HDQ is all a flutter over the newest pixie to join the faculty. Introducing CLEMENTINE CLOCKWORK
This steampunk pixie never minds hiking up her petticoats to get get greasy with cogs and clockwork. She simply slips on her goggles and gets busy. Smart as a whip and spunky too, Clementine proves any girl can get the job done when she sets her mind to it.
