Happy New Year!! IWSG Post

Hello all!! I'm back for a bit. Real life has been kicking my ass of late and I have not been around except in sporadic bursts. Don't beat me, please. ;) Anyway, it is now 2013, the Odd Year and of course, being the first Wednesday, it's time for a new Insecure Writers Support Group post. The IWSG was founded by the awesome Captain Ninja Alex J. Cavanaugh for our writing community to come together in support of one another. you can check out the other amazing participants here.

It's a new year, a Do Over and it is time for us to be large and in charge. We CAN DO IT. We can finish those stories, get them published and take the publishing world by storm. We are AUTHORS. We are superheroes, supervillains and magic powers all rolled into one. We create worlds from nothing, breathe life to whole casts of characters, solve mysteries, stop wars, we even conquer other dimensions and planets. Can I get a hell yeah? Writers are the most brilliant people out there only we don't give ourselves  nearly enough credit. So I'm here to say We ARE awesome, we WILL be successful and we CAN finish the stories/revisions we think we can't. I have every faith us, my fellow writers and I never place faith lightly. I BELIEVE in us. We are going to rock 2013!

Now, I know my regular readers are like WTF? Did Mel get replaced by a Pod Person/Stepford Wife? No,I just have some good cheer left over from the holidays and thought I'd pass it along. Your regular Mel the ass-kicking snarky bitch will be back. Trust me, it's physically impossible for me to hold on to positivity for very long. ;)

  10. A fresh start is what I'm talking about! Especially for the Bears ... :(

    Seriously, just keep going M. Do a little every day toward a goal and you'll accomplish so much in 2013. And I'd read your blog even if you only post twice a year. :-)

  12. You get on with your bad self girl!!! Hey, there are two shows on Netflix that I think might appeal to you. Both BBC and have strong, intelligent female leads. One is Vera and the other is Bramwell. Check them out if you wish.
