Purpose: To share and encourage. Writers can express doubts and concerns without fear of appearing foolish or weak. Those who have been through the fire can offer assistance and guidance. It’s a safe haven for insecure writers of all kinds!
And we’re revving up IWSG Day to make it more fun and interactive! Every month, we'll announce a question that members can answer in their IWSG Day post. These questions may prompt you to share advice, insight, a personal experience or story. Include your answer to the question in your IWSG post or let it inspire your post if you are struggling with something to say.
September 6 Question: Have you ever surprised yourself with your writing? For example, by trying a new genre you didn't think you'd be comfortable in??
My poetry always surprises me. I don't write it all that often, but when I do it is often dark. Scary. Deep. Disturbing. Twisted. Definitely showing the darker side of humanity.
For those who don't know, I write contemporary romance and romantic suspense with light-hearted banter and doses of humour. Always with a Happy Ever After.
It's quite a contrast, but that's just the way it happens.
What about you? Any surprises in your writing? Do you write poetry too? Do you prefer the dark and twisted or the HEA?
