Ninja Captain Alex J Cavanaugh created IWSG — because Alex understands we need a place to congregate, insecurity is part of our creative nature, and together we’re stronger.
On the first Wednesday of each month, you can write on any subject related to your writing journey or adopt the option of answering the month’s question. Either way, you’re in safe territory.
If this sounds good to you, sign up here.
IWSG’s Twitter handle is @TheIWSG and the hashtag is #IWSG.
Every month, a specific question is offered, which may prompt you to share advice, insight, a personal experience or a story. Include your answer to the question in your IWSG post or let it inspire your post if you struggle with something to say.
Remember, the question is optional!
I’m not answering February’s question because it’s been 15 years and everything was done old school. Instead, I’m seeking beta-readers for my mystery/suspense THE SILENT MAN. If you enjoy mysteries and would be interested in reading my manuscript, (99,600 words; 13+) please email me privately at joyleneDOTbutlerATgmailDOTcom and I shall send you THE SILENT MAN as a word doc.
I’ll also be available to swap jobs if you need a beta reader in the future. Or if you know anyone who might consider reading my work, please pass this request along, and I shall be eternally grateful.
When his wife is murdered, a grief-stricken professor refuses lifesaving brain surgery and instead hires an ex-FBI agent to help him find her killer to bring closure to his estranged daughter. The investigation sends them from Vancouver to England.
I’m horrible at pitches, so here’s another one:
Professor Jason Sinclair has always known he’s different. But it didn’t matter. His wife made sense of the world. Only now she’s been murdered and he’s racing against time to find her killer before the tumours in his brain take him down.
