                                               First Wed of Every Month

                                                 Let’s rock the neurotic writing world!

Our Twitter handle is @TheIWSG and hashtag is #IWSG.
The awesome co-hosts for the June 7 posting of the IWSG are Patrcia Josephine, Diedre Knight, Olga Godim, J. Lenni Dorner, and Cathrina Constantine!
Every month, we announce a question that members can answer in their IWSG 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. 

Remember, the question is optional!

June 7 question - If you ever did stop writing, what would you replace it with?

If I ever stopped writing, I would replace it with a hole in my heart, a void of darkness, or a grief-stricken, brokenhearted, life of insanity. 

NOT writing would be NOT good for me. Writing is my life, my passion, my motivation.
Not a day goes by that I don't think about words. Words fill my head from my own stories or from the books I'm reading. I get equally excited about sitting down to both forms of entertainment. Remember, the more you read, the better you write. 
(Says the former librarian!) So, don't stop writing, or reading.

How about you? What would you be doing if you weren't writing? 



  1. I think I'd only stop writing once I've written all I've wanted. I think I wouldn't have a hole in me then.

  2. I don't see quitting in your stars, my dear ;-) But the optional question gave me pause as well. Write on!

  3. Love this affirmation of writing! Absolutely agree. Writing gives me an anchor AND a jumping off place to explore -- really anything I like. It's fun, challenging, rewarding, and what I do every day. Kudos to you! Keep writing.

  4. It's great advice to keep reading and writing. And it's great that you know so strongly how important writing is to you.

  5. You're a librarian - reading and writing IS your life!

  6. I agree that reading more helps you to write better. I haven't been writing for a while, but I also haven't been reading much, so I'd say the two are related!

  7. It apparently holds a very important spot in your life. It's good that this was only a what if type question.

  8. I agree completely. I am relearning the thrill of both, writing and reading but the two becoming a passion once again.
