Hello bloggers. It is the first Wednesday of the month and we know what that means, right? Time for the Insecure Writers Support Group – #IWSG.

NinjaInsecure Writers Support Group Badge Captain Alex J. Cavanaugh , my hero and one of my mentors, founded this amazing and wonderful group.

The group’s purpose is to allow writers to share their doubts and fears, trials and tribulations without fear of being mocked or feeling foolish. It’s also a place where writers who have “been there” 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 July 6 posting of the IWSG are Yolanda Renee, Tyrean Martinson, Madeline Mora-Summonte , LK Hill, Rachna Chhabria, and JA Scott!

July has been off to a great start! I’m feeling better than I have in some time. Friends and former colleagues that I haven’t seen in a couple of years were up my way. One of my former co-workers, Vee, picked me up two days in a row so I could spend time at an area pool. She’s my sister from another mister. 🙂

I was pleasantly surprised when I saw others that I knew from NJ at the pool. I did throw caution to the wind on Sunday, having about four drinks instead of my usual two baby drinks. I suffered royally that night from a migraine, but for all that fun, it was worth it.

Check out my other blog’s IWSG post this month too at lilicasplace.

How was your Fourth of July weekend?







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. Four drinks and I’d be asleep! Glad you got some pool time.

  2. Sounds like a blast. Don’t even remember the last time I did that. Good for you! A migraine is a harsh result, but if your fun outweighed the pain, worth it for sure!

    My 4th was fairly calm. Went to my son’s for dinner. He grilled outside. It rained the whole time. The food was good though. Lots of young folks I didn’t know. We had fun.

    Glad your month is off to a good start! ;D


  6. Nice to meet you. I can’t drink without those nasty migraines either. It’s always nice to meet up with friends.


    • Hey Nancy! Awesome to meet you. I read one of your books. It’s due a review. Good stuff. 🙂 Yeah, I found the culprit of the migraine was champagne in one of the drinks. Go figure. Thanks for the visit and comment! Eva

    Depends what you were drinking of course and how fast you drank them. 4 whiskies (Scotch) over the course of an evening wouldn’t do much to me, 4 Manhattans and I might be a tad tipsy.

    So happy to hear that you are making progress. Great!
    As for the fourth, I was cleaning out my flooded basement so that the workers can start putting in new floors next week.

  9. I’m not sure what would be worth a migraine for me. Definitely not alcohol. Maybe an overload of chocolate and cheese. Now we’re talking!

    • I figured out it was the champagne in one of the drinks that my friend made at the house before we went to the pool that was ultimately the culprit. Champagne for me is a definite migraine no-no. Sadly, I didn’t figure it out until I saw the empty mini-bottles the next day. Oy!
