on the power of showing up

note: I wrote this post in April of 2019 (pre-COVID). It's been sitting in my drafts for quite a while, but I think it's time for it to see the light of day. It's been helpful for me to reread over the past few months, especially as I continue to try to make an effort to write, and I hope it can be helpful to you, too. i got an invite to a writers' group a few months ago, and i had never felt like more of a fraud in my life. it had been months, if not years, since i'd felt like a writer. the proverbial well of words in my heart had dried up, it seemed, and i wasn't sure if it was ever coming back. i agreed to go out of a sense of helplessness—i'd identified as a writer ever since i could remember. if i'm not a writer, who am i?  i told myself that it was important to show up and act like a writer even when i didn't feel like one, because even though i hadn't been writing, i reassured myself, i still was a writer. but sometimes the words f

Beautiful People: August Edition

Greetings, writerlings! How in the world is it almost August? I swear, 2017 has flown past. Here we are with another Beautiful People for you! But first...

What is Beautiful People?
Beautiful People is a blog meme hosted by myself and the ever-awesome Cait @ Paper Fury. Every month, we post ten questions to help you get to know your characters better. They can be elusive and enigmatic, but we hope every question we post brings you closer to the answers about your wonderful beautiful people (your characters). 

How do I join?
Just jump in! Snag the questions, post them on your blog, and come back to add your link! I also recommend checking out the posts of the other participants. It's a great way to make new friends.

Please also give Cait and I a link back--whether through a regular link, or these shiny blog buttons:


Note: Photobucket changed their plan and made the previous version of the blog buttons broken, so you'll have to save and download them to your blog this time. Sorry for any inconvenience!

And now to the questions!
  1. What are they addicted to/can’t live without? 
  2. Name 3 positive and 3 negative qualities about your character.
  3. Are they holding onto something they should get rid of?
  4. If 10 is completely organized and 1 is completely messy, where do they fall on the scale?
  5. What most frustrates them about the world they live in?
  6. How would they dress for a night out? How would they dress for a night in?
  7. How many shoes do they own, and what kind?
  8. Do they have any pets? What pet do they WISH they had?
  9. Is there something or someone that they resent? Why and what happened?
  10. What’s usually in their fridge or pantry?

How's writing this month, everyone? How are your characters? How did Camp NaNo go? Sound off in the comments!

Comments make the world go 'round... or was that chocolate?

Thank you for stopping by! I read every single comment and love them all. Seriously, it makes my day. I do my best to comment back!

My only rule is basic respect and honor. Disagreement is accepted, but hate and trolling is not. Otherwise, say what you need to say, and have fun. And don't forget to grab a free complimentary mint on your way out.
