Happy hump day! We made it to the first Wednesday of the month and that means it is time for an Insecure Writer’s Support Group post. Where did January go, friends? It seems like yesterday we were starting this new year. How did it go for you? Ups and Downs? Insides and Outs? I did write a little in January. Mainly papers/essays for school. Did you know I can churn out three essays about science in under an hour and get rated exceptional on each of them? This had lead me to believe that if I think too much about things (writing), it hinders me in a way. If I just go for it and write, write, write, I am okay. Spilling words on to pages and making them come alive.

So, our question for the month: What do you love about the genre you write in most often?
I love to write about travel and travel planning. I love telling people about places that I have been and why they should visit them. I like giving people a heads up on places/things that might not be as great as they seem. Also, if you have to deal with the Wyoming starvation diet because there are no restaurants open on Monday evenings, so you need to plan ahead on food there. I love traveling and planning. I am a type A when it comes to some things. I am not hostile though. I’ve seen that word a lot with type As and that’s not me. I do have a relaxed, fun side and that’s what makes travel so fun. I like to plan, but if things happen spontaneously, that’s okay too. I want people to experience the world around them and it’s okay if you don’t have a lot of money. Travel can still happen if you budget properly and plan ahead (and have money for those not planned side trips).

I also like to write about Roller Derby. Not so much on this blog, put on the league blog that we have. Occasionally, I will post things over here, but mostly pictures and game recaps or thoughts and feelings. I like writing about it because it is a sport I really truly love. I know it’s a small community, but everyone has to belong to some sort of community and love that community that they are in.
On the blog, I enjoy link ups. I love reading others peoples blogs and seeing what they are up to and what they are writing about. I try to visit all the people in a link up. The IWSG is a little harder though because there are so many people! I will try to visit as many as possible and make comments though. I know that’s not a genre, but it’s still writing and enjoying others work.

Thank you for stopping by to visit and I hope your Wednesday goes well for you. You are doing an extraordinary job, keep it up.
