#IWSG #NoSuspense #NoThriller #CozyGirl

It's Insecure Writer's Support Group Day! If you'd like to join this monthly event, go HERE to sign up. 

Many thanks to our host Alex Cavanaugh, and this month's co- hosts, for their time and efforts to make sure every one is included and receives a visit with kind words and encouragement:  Kim Lajevardi, Cathrina Constantine, Natalie Aguirre, Olga Godim, Michelle Wallace, and Louise - Fundy Blue! 

This month's optional question is: What genre would be the worst one for you to tackle and why? 

Suspense/Thriller would be the hardest for me. I find it hard enough to put my characters in danger as it is, and any gore or murder happens "off stage" in my books. I write "gentle" murders. Nothing like real life at all,  LOL. 

My biggest problem is that I'm a fixer. You got a problem? Let me help you fix it. I want people to be well and safe and not sad or stressed. Even in books I can't bring myself to make things too hard, and when I do put the pressure on, I fix it as well. Haha! Crazy, isn't it? 

What genre would be the worst for you?

(P.S. If you visited me last month and I didn't return the visit, I apologize. I'm a bit scattered right now. I had Covid, and then Covid Rebound so was basically sick for a month--so annoying!). 


  1. UGH! Covid!! So sorry you were sick for a month. I hope you're on the mend!!

    1. Thanks, Cathrina. I guess I needed the rest. LOL.

  2. Sorry you had it double-time.
    Yeah, I don't like to pile on too many problems either...

  3. Thanks for your kind remarks, Gwen. And I do hope you are soon fully recovered.

  4. I was a bit of a fixer when I started writing fiction. I didn't like people in too much peril or strife.


Yay! You left a comment! I love comments.
