Ninja Captain Alex J. Cavanaugh , my hero and one of my mentors, founded this amazing and wonderful group.

The purpose of this group is for writers of any kind to share their doubts and fears, trials and tribulations without fear of being mocked or feeling foolish. It’s also a place where writers with years of knowledge and experience can offer wisdom and guidance.

Whenever anyone finishes a draft, edits their work, finds the perfect critique group, publishes their work, or has any other good news to share, this is the place to do it too!

The awesome co-hosts for the December 3 posting of the IWSG are Heather Gardner, T. Drecker from Kidbits, Eva E. Solar at Lilicasplace, that’s my other blog, and Patsy Collins!

Make sure you pay them a visit and thank them for all their hard work!

Overall, this year has been a fairly good one. It’s had its shares of ups and downs but I certainly can’t complain. I was blessed enough to be able to create this blog in addition to the other blog I run. 

My story has helped others in medical situations similar to my own deal with the range of emotions and depression that is to be expected, but not everyone understands. I’ve made numerous new friends through both my blogs that I will be forever grateful for.

It’s been in this year that I’ve been able to figure out to a good degree who my real friends are and who the people I need to run for cover from are. I have been blessed to find help and assistance from places least expected. God most surely works in mysterious ways to bring me what I need. I will never doubt that again. It’s been a long, interesting, educational, and many times painful and emotional journey.

I have spent a good part of the year advocating for stroke prevention and health. It’s something I’m very proud of. I’m hoping to expand my efforts next year.

My blogging has been a major help. The love and friendship of the Fellowship of the Dragon has been a major player in me wanting to aim for bigger and better things come next year.

I’d love to know what you’ve accomplished this year with your writings, blogging, WIPs, etc. Please do tell in my comments! Hugs and until next month…keep writing and believing in yourself!






About My Miracle Life

I'm a writer, blogger, avid reader, book reviewer, sub-arachnoid hemorrhage and stroke survivor, moving forward in my recovery and trying to advocate for stroke and brain hemorrhage awareness and prevention. I'm also slowly working towards independence, driving, my first novel, a memoir and a series of short stories. I've been lucky to have a very small network of close friends to guide me; I've been even luckier to have found an online 'family' of sorts to help me through the rough times.

  1. We often overlook our blessings. There are amazing people on here (especially the ones you mentioned). We’re lucky to have them.


  2. And of course, I am incredibly late getting here!
    Glad you are now part of the Fellowship. It’s an awesome bunch of people.

  3. I’m just stopping by to say “hello”! I totally understand what you mean by knowing who your real friends are. Sometimes it’s a hard lesson to learn, but, in the end, I think we end up with a better support system. Stay well Eva!

    • I know you do, Katie. We find these things out the hard way sometimes. You’re right in the fact that we end up with a better support system because of it. Hugs to you love!
