Many thanks to Alex J. Cavanaugh, all of the administrators, and the blog co-hosts this month for making the IWSG an awesome place to hang out, let our worries fly free, and gain/give some encouragement!
BTW, for an quick update on my kayaking daughter: she has friends who went to the Pan American Championships and Junior/Senior Worlds, but she elected to not go to trials and to save for college this fall. She is competing at Nationals.
Has your writing ever taken you by surprise? For example, a positive and belated response to a submission you'd forgotten about or an ending you never saw coming?
My writing surprises me all the time. Okay, maybe not "all" of the time, but much of the time. I went back to look through (purge) some of my old journals and found some writing gems I decided to keep - a simile, a few poems, a novel. They were better than I remembered - surprise!
