It’s spooky season!

This post is part of the Insecure Writer’s Support Group blog hop. The first Wednesday of every month is Insecure Writer’s Support Group day. Post your thoughts on your own blog. Talk about your doubts and the fears you have conquered. Discuss your struggles and triumphs. Offer a word of encouragement for others who are struggling. The awesome co-hosts for the October 3 posting of the IWSG are Dolorah @ Book Lover, Christopher D. Votey, Tanya Miranda, and Chemist Ken!

October is here! The spookiest time of the year, if you dig Halloween–which I do! Being mostly a paranormal author I’m always into the scary things, and this time of year is my treat. I’m participating in several Halloween-themed promotions this month but for right now: let the jack o’ lanterns be carved! Let the ghosts rattle their chains! Let the black cats howl!

Speaking of that, I’m going to share a video at the end of the post. I don’t have a lot of insecurities this month that aren’t just me rehashing my same old, same old issues, so I’m going to give you some Halloween yummies instead.

October 3 question – How do major life events affect your writing? Has writing ever helped you through something?

I try to hold on to writing no matter what upheaval affects my life–from the small to the large. Writing keeps me sane. I’ve been through a divorce, moving cities, breakups, job changes, moving house, illnesses, and every life change you can imagine–and still, I write. It’s the one constant. I think without it, I would go insane and not know my identity. Knowing I can always come back to the page makes everything better. Though sometimes it gets hard to write, in the end, I always come back to it. I have to. It’s who I am.

Happy October…and Halloween!

  1. That’s great how you handle life challenges by writing. I haven’t been able to do that with my own writing. But I’m hoping to get back into it soon. Hope this is a great writing month for you.

  2. I wish I could write the way you do, through everything. I come back to it and brainstorm and come up with ideas but the actual writing is a struggle, but I try even when it doesn’t work out. Happy IWSG and Halloween. Like the song too.
