#IWSG WordPress Woes

Hey, writers! Join us as we share our fears and hopes in this monthly blog group. Sign up at Alex Cavanaugh’s blog.

The courageous co-hosts for the February 5 posting of the IWSG are Lee Lowery, Ronel Janse van Vuuren, Jennifer Hawes, Cathrina Constantine, and Tyrean Martinson! Thank you, co-hosts.

I recently switched my site from blogger to wordpress, and it’s more stressful than I anticipated. Wasn’t it much easier to write wordpress posts in the past? A web designer is going to help me, and she told me that wordpress recently changed their posting format.

Why you so difficult, computer?

I’m also struggling with a theme for my site. I chose Arcana because I like having two columns, but I don’t even know how to edit the font color in the cover image.

For those of you who use wordpress, any tips for me? I’m already starting to become more familiar with the block editor, so hopefully I’ll bitch less in the future! At least commenting on my blog will be easier now if you’re on an Apple computer. (I’ve had trouble commenting on Blogger from my MacBook.)

Happy Valentine’s Day and Single’s Awareness Day, writers!

New Release: The Realization of Grayson Deschanelle by Nancee Cain

Release Date: January 24, 2020

Cover Design: Shannon M. Lumetta

Synopsis

Despite a high-profile clientele, fashion photographer Grayson Deschanelle prefers being behind the lens, away from public scrutiny. After his movie star girlfriend dumps him, he flees to his stepbrother’s remote cabin to hide from the paparazzi.

Related to Grayson by marriage, Lissy Carlton decides his plan to run from his problems might work for her, too. And perhaps he can help her out of the predicament that tanked her grades this semester of college as well. Caught by surprise, Grayson finds Lissy much different than the girl he’s known for years. She’s no longer a child—though her teenaged crush is still very much intact. Snowed in with her, he tries to fight his growing attraction. But being with Lissy

brings what his life is lacking into sharp focus. The ice melts, and they return home. When their families discover their secret, Grayson must decide what kind of life he truly wants—and whether he’ll fight to keep Lissy by his side.

#IWSG Writing Journey

Happy New Year, writers! Join us for this supportive monthly group–sign up at Alex Cavanaugh’s blog.

You may have noticed I have a new website! It might also be evident that I’m just starting to spruce it up. Hopefully my blog will look prettier come next month.

Thanks to this month’s cohosts: T. Powell Coltrin, Victoria Marie Lees, Stephen Tremp, Renee Scattergood, and J.H. Moncrieff!

January 8 question – What started you on your writing journey? Was it a particular book, movie, story, or series? Was it a teacher/ coach/ spouse/friend/parent? Did you just “know” suddenly you wanted to write?  

I enjoyed creative writing as a child, but it wasn’t until my 30’s when I became obsessed with the TV show, Prison Break. I scarfed down the entire first season before binge watching was a thing. Then I fell into writing fan fiction for the show, and I’ve been hooked on writing ever since. Wentworth Miller (yummy actor) was quite the inspiration!

“Life is a series of natural and spontaneous changes. Don’t resist them; that only creates sorrow. Let reality be reality. Let things flow naturally forward in whatever way they like.” 

― Lao Tzu

I’ve wanted to move my author blog from Blogger to WordPress for some time, and when my old site’s designer’s images became inaccessible, I found my opportunity! This site is still under construction.

#IWSG Your Future Writer Self

Join us for the Insecure Writer’s Support Group at creator Alex Cavanaugh’s blog.

Happy Holidays, writers! I just returned from Chicago where my family celebrated Thanksgiving. My oldest sister made a yummy meal including a brussels sprout salad, and my middle sister went all out planning a Frozen-themed party for my niece’s second birthday. (The seal was a gift for my niece that snuck onto the table. Not part of the movie, but still a wintry theme.)



December 4 question – Let’s play a game. Imagine. Role-play. How would you describe your future writer self, your life and what it looks and feels like if you were living the dream? Or if you are already there, what does it look and feel like? Tell the rest of us. What would you change or improve?

Imagining the future, hmm. My writing life has never been intentional–I fell into it through fan fiction, and I consider writing more of a hobby than a career. As a result, it’s tough to plot a future for my writer self. 


I have envisioned a time when my psychology career slows down, meeting with fewer clients per week, and increasing writing time then. I’d like to venture into different genres, character ages, and tenses. I want to continue improving my craft. I also picture myself near a beach somewhere, likely South Carolina to watch my precious niece grow up! 


Thank you to the courageous co-hosts for December 4: Tonja Drecker, Beverly Stowe McClure, Nicki Elson, Fundy Blue, and Tyrean Martinson (A special thanks to Nicki Elson for being the best damn critique partner a writer can have.)

Winter is Coming Giveaway Hop

Thanks to The Mommy Island and The Kids Did It for hosting the Winter is Coming Giveaway Hop. What a cute kitty.


How do you like winter? I’m not a big fan, especially due to the shorter days. Americans, let’s lobby Congress to keep Daylight Savings Time all year long!

Until that happens, let’s celebrate a fun part of winter holidays: GIFTS! I’m giving away a $15 gift card and a Jennifer Lane ebook of your choice. I write sports romance and romantic suspense with a psychological twist.
