Insecure Writer's Support Group

Hi everyone,
As you may know, every first Wednesday of the month, we write about our insecurities and answer a question from Alex. J. Cavanaugh  and his blogging partners. Be sure to stop by and see what everyone has to say this month.

The question this month is: What's the weirdest/coolest thing you ever had to research?

Here's my answer to the question:

When I was a student with the Institute of Children's Literature, I chose to write about George Washington. It was fun to learn little trivia that most people may not know. For example, did you know George always had trouble with spelling? He couldn't remember if cough should be cough or coff. Also, he loved good manners and he wrote several books on the subject. I had fun studying about the things George liked and disliked.
This month my insecurities have to do with editing. I've spent a lot of time editing my new book and still, I don't feel confident about it. Thankfully, my publisher, Gina McKnight of Monday Creek Publishing, was helpful.  I think no matter how much time you spend on writing, there is always more to learn.I remember thinking the same about horseback riding :)
What are your insecurities this month?

  1. Some of the smartest people have trouble with spelling it seems. Love the tiny details that bring historical figures and characters to life. Good luck with the edits!
