IWSG - October

The Insecure Writer's Support Group was created by Alex J. Cavanaugh as a place where writers can talk about their insecurities once a month, and receive encouragement and support from other writers. It's such an amazing group, it even has its own website now, which you can visit here.


At the moment I'm off sick from work, which sucks, but I've decided to use all of the spare time on my writing and blogging. I'm off with dizziness and feeling lightheaded, so there's not really much else I can do! Even reading makes me dizzy, which is so depressing. All this spare time, and I can't use it to get through my to-read pile! 

Thankfully, it's my favourite time of year for writing; I just love writing stories for Halloween. I've entered three blog hops (WEP, Share a Scare and Spooktoberfest) and I can't wait to write the stories for them. I started planning for the first one last night, which is the most writing I've done in a while. 

I'm also going to use all of the spare time to catch up on blogs and become more involved with the blogosphere. I really have missed you guys!

  1. Sorry you're sick. Hope you feel up to hopping around the blogging world today. Maybe even some reading and writing later.

  2. Take care! Horrid to be dizzy, but if you can write - it'll take you away from the rest!

  3. I'm sorry to hear that you're sick. At least you can write. That might make up for some of the unpleasantness.

  11. I hate when I'm too sick to read, like if I have a cold and my eyes water too much to see the page. Ugh. Hope you feel better soon!

  15. Aww! I hope you feel better soon! I have trouble reading while sick, so I usually just end up staring at the TV when I'm not sleeping. At least you feel up to writing, which is good.
