IWSG: June 2017 Already?

My does time go no matter what. June has arrived and with it another IWSG. Also thanks to our host Alex and his monthly co-hosts. Lovely that he has help getting through that long list. Like Santa!



June IWSG Question: Did you ever say "I quit"? If so, what happened when you came back to writing?

Quit writing? Are you mad? I have taken breaks for various reasons. But really quit? Never. I have quit other things including believing my parents will ever accept writing as a career. But never writing. I pushed through to be a writer and there's no quitting in my past, present or future.


In the rest of my life I'm having a lot of fun taking part in writing prompts and hashtags on twitter. I have been regularly doing #authorconfession for a few months and loving all the bonds forming. For someone with limited IRL support, the internet is my lifeline. Love writing, reading and hanging out with my peeps which of course includes bloggers too. Thanks for stopping by and see you Friday.

  3. It's too bad you're not getting more real life support from your family. Maybe they'll come around!

  4. Most of my writing support comes from the internet, too; my family aren't too fussed about reading my writing!

  10. #authorconfession? That sounds like an epic place to connect. If I can find the time... =)

  11. Love the cat! Nope, I've never quit. That would be like quitting exercise, or washing, or breathing.

  12. Aw, sorry you don't have the IRL support you deserve! But we believe in you, and we're here. Big hugs from someone who totally gets how disheartening that can be. <3

  13. If you enjoy writing, there's no need to quit -- and you obviously get a lot of happiness from your writing! Keep on keeping on!

  14. I love the sound of the way you enjoy your writing career. It can be tough joining twitter and facebook groups and participating when you're in an opposite timezone, but I'm sure it'd be worth it.

  15. I'm glad you've found a productive way to use Twitter. To me it's the devil, just a raging ball of mindless anger and frustration. :-/

  16. I'm glad you've found support here on the 'net. While my family is supportive, they don't understand like other writers do. Hang in there, keep writing. Believe in yourself.

  17. We never can walk away from the things that make us happy. So happy you found the support online you weren't able to irl.

  18. I love the Cat pic. :D I am so glad you've found such great support online. I am going to check out that hashtag - sounds like fun.

  19. Like you, I would never consider quitting writing! That's almost the same as quitting breathing ;)

  20. I have some family support so I can't complain too much but it get's old when other relatives keep asking me what I write about. I love that the thought of quitting seems so unreal to you; plus, the cat picture is great.
