To be honest, the 1st sort of crept on me. And with it, this post for IWSG.
So, I have been in a whirlwind of Seattle (visit there. You will love it), babysitting, double-cleaning and updating chapters of my newest project, Rozmarie & Josiah, on wattpad, even though wattpad refuses to acknowledge the updates. I’ve placed a link to them here but who knows if it’s going to work.
*crosses fingers anxiously*
Happy IWSG to all you IWSGers out there. Insecure Writer’s Support Group is open to all authors, novice to pro, to share their doubts and fears with the rest of us, so we can all grow and support one another in this amazing endeavor. Basically, it’s to realize our freakish tendencies aren’t so freakish. So if you want to join (and you know you do) you can become part of this awesome blog hop started by Alex Cavanaugh here.
This month I’m feeling… excited. Due to financial situations, the correct emotion should be scared shitless. And like, 3% of me is. But I don’t want to waste my life worrying. I’ve done enough of that and it solves nothing. So I’ve decided to really enjoy this life and all its opportunities. I’m excited about each day and even things I’m not guaranteed. But the possibility of them exists and that’s enough. So, we’re going with excited. Yeah. Yeah, I like that.
What about you? How are you feeling this July 1st – the official beginning to the second half of the year? Terrified that Christmas/Hanukkah/Kwanzaa/Festivus is only six months away? Or excited for all the amazing things that are going to happen between now and then?
Yup. Thought so.
***side note – Hell yeah to the same sex marriage ruling. About time. The mission here is love. It’s always been about love.

Yeh for excited! And I’m trying harder to worry less, enjoy more. So far, I’m cautiously optimistic for July. 🙂
Optimism leads to great things. Worrying does not.
Seems simple enough to me. 🙂
Woot! I’m happy you’re excited! Me, I’m teetering on the edge of panic mode, but so long as I don’t think about it, I don’t tip. 🙂 I’ve been enjoying your story on Wattpad! You entranced me from the first page, girl. <3
Thanks, Loni! I keep trying to update the chapters but apparently Wattpad hates me. Hopefully it’ll change its mind :/
I get moments of panic but then I realize it’s doing me no good. So I’m trying the opposite. And let me tell you – life is better when you enjoy it 🙂
Hell, yeah! back at you. I’ll be more excited when I get something done. June has been a month of distractions and delays. I’d like to be up to my eyeballs and bumping into walls lost in my writing again.
And you will. That was June. Today is the first day of July. And – even better – the rest of your life. So get lost in your writing because there’s no better time to do it than the present.
So glad you had an awesome time in Seattle!
I’m slightly envious you live there! But also happy for you 😉
Yes, it was *awesome*
I’m excited because I just started editing one of my books yesterday and it’s going awesome. And it fits with your “hell yeah” (which I utterly and completely share), because the romantic couple in the book? Two women. Bwa ha ha.
And I’m glad you liked Seattle. It really is awesome up here, I wish I’d moved years ago.
Excited is awesome! 🙂
