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.
June 5 question: Of all the genres you read and write, which is your favorite to write in and why?
I love so many genres - both for reading and writing!
I've been immersed in the world of nonfiction recently getting ready to publish Dancing With Dementia. It holds a huge part of my heart because it deals with my family and how dementia has affected all of us.
Nonfiction is a different beast from fiction and it's had its own set of challenges and joys.
Because it's consumed my world for the past few years, it's definitely my current favourite genre. Writing a deeply emotional subject is obviously not easy, but writing it with the purpose of helping others makes it easier to do.
I'm looking for early readers for Dancing With Dementia. If you're interested, send me an email (firstname.lastname@example.org), let me know in the comments, or sign up for my newsletter over in the righthand sidebar of the blog. (The newsletter will be for all my writing, not only the nonfiction.) Thanks!
How about you? Do you switch up your favourites depending what you're working on? Anyone interested in an early copy of Dancing With Dementia?
