Insecure Writer’s Support Group – Try, Try, Again

I didn’t like the way I did it the first time, so I did it over again. – Sydney Aaliyah Michelle


Another month, another insecurity and another IWSG post. 

Our hosts this month Chemist Ken, Suzanne Sapseed, and Shannon Lawrence. If you get a chance, please show them some support along with all the other members of the support group who you can find, here

I’m starting to feel like everything about this business is trial and error. I try something and if it doesn’t work, I try something else. What works for one author doesn’t necessarily work for me.

I’ve been a published author for ten months now and I have wasted a lot of time, a lot of money and a lot of sleepless nights and  while I have learned a lot. There is still so much I don’t know and it is frustrating.

Don’t get me wrong, I am proud of what I have accomplished and I am incredibly blessed to be a writer. It is my passion. No matter how frustrating it can get at times, I can’t imagine not doing it, but more often than not, I feel like I am just throwing darts at a board praying for something to stick.

Do you ever feel like this? Does this feeling every go away? 

Look forward to hearing everyones thoughts.



It’s been a while since Mr. Alex J. Cavanaugh hosted a blogfest. His are always the best.

Everyone has a favorite movie or band that no one else has ever heard about. For whatever reason, they remain undiscovered and underrated. Now is your chance to tell the world about this obscure treasure!

I had to think about this one. I am a trend follower most of the time, but I think I have a couple of unknowns to introduce you to.

If you have some underrated treasures you would like to share, join the blogfest and let us know.


Post about one or all four – dealer’s choice!


I reference movies in my writing all the time. It’s rare that I will reference music, but this song fit into my new book, Hope for Her (Hope Series Book #1) perfectly.  Vivian Green’s Emotional Roller Coaster

This song get’s me every time I hear it. Too bad she didn’t do more.



I love Keanu Reeves, always have and always will. I know he may not have the best acting chops, but there is a reason people still star him in movies. He has a presence. One of my favorite Keanu movies is Street Kings.

Synopsis:  LAPD detective Tom Ludlow is a ruthlessly efficient, unorthodox undercover cop. Captain Jack Wander always covers for Tom, as do even his somewhat jealous colleagues. After technically excessive violence against a vicious Korean gang during the liberation of a kidnapped kid sex slave, Tom becomes the target of IA’s hotshot, captain James Biggs, who feels passed over after Wander’s promotion to chief. Tom’s corrupt, disloyal ex-patrol partner Terrence Washington sides with IA but is killed during a shop robbery in Tom’s presence.

Television Show:  


Homicide: Life on the Street – A police homicide investigation unit investigates violent crimes in the city of Baltimore.

If your a fan of the original Law & Order and Law & Order SVU, you probably watched Homicide. I can watch these episodes over and over again.
