July 2018 IWSG, 2018 Raleigh SuperCon and Gunnery Sergeant Hartman


Hello everyone, as always thanks for stopping by and saying hi.

The July 2018 IWSG brought to you by Alex J. Cavanaugh and his team of co-hosts Erika Beebe, Sandra Hoover, Susan Gourley and Lee Lowery

July 2018 Question What pitfalls would you warn other writers to avoid on their publication journey? 

A few things. 

First We’re in this for the long haul. My books took a couple revisions after first publication, although the following novels were much easier to write. Few experience instant success enough to quit their day job right away. It’s a journey filled with peaks and valleys, a roller coaster ride of emotions. But stay with it. You’re in it for the long haul. 

The last thing you want to do is lay on your death bed wondering, “What if ...” 

Second Make time for your loved ones and get their support before you begin your endeavor. The last thing you want is for them to see nothing but the back of your head as you spend much of your free time sitting in front of your monitor researching, writing and revising. 


Finally Have fun. Yes your journey will be an emotional roller coaster, but hey, roller coasters are meant to be fun. So have fun!




I love to see my fellow and fellowette Blogtonians and their success stories. Here's L. Diane Wolfe at the 2018 Raleigh SuperCon.





Be sure to stop by her blog for lots of pics and such from this event. 





Question Do you have plans to join, participate or be a visitor at any ComicCon or reader festival in the near future?
