IWSG: ...and that's how Wacky Wednesday began...

I am a bit behind. It's all my fault. I never thought that someone would leave comments in my "About Me Section". Imagine my surprise when I saw I was nominated for the "Very Inspiriting Blogger Award" more than a month ago by Sabrina at: Books and Bark. I thank her for this and am happy that we connected. Her blog is fun to read and even more fun to look at! I think I may want to hire her to do mine :-) I will tag other bloggers who have inspired me at the end of this blog! 15 is a large number so I may just put up a few.**

Also, today is the first Wednesday of the month. You know what that is:

I was trying to think of something to write about, something that I'm insecure about with writing. I covered a few in previous Wednesday IWSG posts. But now, I want to flip this and let's write about something we are proud of...and it doesn't have to be about you. It can be something amazing your child did, a teacher did for you, something a coworker said.

What good things have happened to you in the last month? What has made you happy? I'll start:

1) the kids started school which means we'll be back to more of a schedule. It also means long marching band practices but I love watching their competitions so I'm okay with that (and my son knows it all pays off in the end.)
2) I was offered a job by a major book chain. I will know more when they schedule the orientation. I never thought, though, I would have to decline...see #3:
3) The next day I received a phone call about a job I applied for as a personal assistant to a writer. I am meeting with them soon to see if we 'mesh'. A dream job, it sounds like! Fingers crossed...
4) I discovered "Game of Thrones" and thank Netflix for having them all on DVD.
5) I made French Bread from scratch and it is good. All because my youngest asked me to make the Basil Olive Oil I made (with basil from our garden) because it was "awesome". I'll take that compliment from a 12 year old!

Now take these positive thoughts, happenings and vibes and put them into your writing energy. Enjoy the last few weeks of summer, wherever you are!

**Bloggers who have inspired me are the same ones from a previous post "Wonderful Team Member Readership Award" which you can read here: Inspiring Bloggers (Elizabeth Mueller, Jody Hedlund, Donna K. Weaver).

I would also like to add Rita Webb at "A Fantasy Fiction" blog  here. I don't know how she writes everything she does with a family and job, but she makes it happen. She is constantly engaged with her audience via Facebook or her blog and her craft gets better and better. Hop on over and check out her blog when you get a chance!


  1. A job offer by a major book chain is good. Fingers crossed for both your job offers.

  2. Good luck on that "mesh" meeting. I'm sending good vibes and juju your way.

    1. Thanks! It went well...we'll do a trial next week :-)

  3. Congrats on the job offers! I hope you get the one you want and that it is everything you hope it is! Good luck!

  4. Woot! Grats on the job offers. That's great! And the French bread sounds delicious.

    I think I'm proud that I finished revising a short story and I'm hitting a novella hard and heavy. The fact that I get any words down makes me happy.

  5. Oh! I've been so behind on commenting ever since school started, but I'm glad you finally found the comment! :) I guess Blogger doesn't email or notify you when you get new comments like WordPress does? *shrugs*

    I'd love to give you pointers on making your blog "fun to look at," as you put it. :)

    Oh, I miss doing ISWG! I recently had to drop out because I kept having other posts scheduled on the day of ISWG (yesterday, I had a book's blog tour, and in October and September, I just didn't have time to do it). Have fun writing and blogging! :D
