Here's what we're celebrating:

Insecure writer's Support Group...

Hi everyone,
Since it's the first Wednesday of the month we blog about things we get frazzled about. Remember to stop by to catch up with what everyone has to say.
This week I edited a book for a friend. It was my first experience with editing something that was not my work. I think my suggestions were well received, but waiting for the final verdict on that. As usual, it was a new experience and those things always make me feel uncertain.
What are you insecure about this month? Whatever your fears are, I hope you conquer them.
I just read Julie Flanders' blog with the new question of the month feature. In answer to the question of what's the best thing that's been said about your writing, I'd say I love when young readers tell me one of my books is their favorite and they've brought it to school to share with their friends.
