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 February 1 posting of the IWSG are Misha Gericke, LK Hill, Juneta Key, Christy and Joylene Buter!

Don’t forget to visit them and thank them for their hard work!

Now that I’m settled in (for the most part) with home, doctors, insurance, etc., I started thinking about how I could motivate myself into blogging more. I decided that I would post a quote every week that would reflect how I’m feeling at the time I schedule it.


One week it could be funny, the next it could be reflective. You get the point. Since this is the first Wednesday of a new month, I decided to start today.

I somehow manage to find the courage every day. I hope you do too.


February 1 Question: How has being a writer changed your experience as a reader?

Check out my other blog’s post at lilicasplace for the answer.

What motivates you to continue blogging? Did you answer the question of the month?







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.

    Keep on keeping on! 🙂 I blog a lot less now than I used to. I just don’t have the time or brain power anymore. This is the first spate of blogging I’ve done in a month!
