Today it's time for another IWSG and we get to share our insecurities and other thoughts. I really don't feel like sharing insecurities right now. So instead I'll drop some sweet knowledge on you folks. Starting with a quote from Wavy Lines, a blog that posts a lot of inspirational writing quotes.
Every day we get a fresh chance to live the way we want. - John Kenney
IWSG August Question: What was your very first piece of writing as an aspiring writer? Where is it now? Collecting dust or has it been published?
My first writing love was poetry. It was funny enough also the first piece of writing I was paid for. I still have the copies of Bookends Magazine that published my poems. Even those that didn't. To this day I still have poems collected in various notebooks and on my flash drives. Guess that's why after delays of previous self published works the one that finally gets within the realm of being published by latest early 2017 is the one I wrote in verse. The Missing Girls Series is very dear to my heart. Each female teen who gets kidnapped hits me hard despite being fiction. Because first of all I created these characters and determine their individual fates and secondly because all over the world teens both male and female get kidnapped under all sorts of circumstances. Some are found but others no one ever knows what happened to them. A sad truth I hope gets stopped one day. No one deserves to be ripped from their own lives.
So on that note thanks for stopping by, remember to check out IWSG Listing and see you on Friday.
