I will also not be online next week or posting for The Insecure Writer’s Support Group. Elections are that Tuesday here in the US, and for my sanity, I am staying away from social media. I’m terrified of both the changes one will bring and the protests the other will bring. It won’t be pretty. So best if I just hide. And pray.

The Insecure Writer's Support Group


It’s time for another edition of The Insecure Writer’s Support Group, founded by Ninja Captain, Alex J. Cavanaugh.

October 7 question
- When you think of the term working writer, what does that look like to you? What do you think it is supposed to look like? Do you see yourself as a working writer or aspiring or hobbyist, and if latter two, what does that look like?

Are you ready?

When I began this journey, I wanted to be a working writer. And I got off to a great start with 7 books in just 5 years.

But I also wanted to run a publishing company and that slowly took over.

At this point, I don’t know what any of that looks like.

Add the drama of this year with the virus and the over-lockdowns and the violations of our constitutional rights and the crashing of the economy and the riots fueled by Antifa and the clashing of the
political parties and the sense that we really might be in the end days, and I have no idea what a writer looks like anymore.

Maybe I need to move to Sweden. Or Florida – I heard they are wide open. Maybe then I would feel normal again and could return to being a writer.

At the very least, I need a vacation. Someplace OUTSIDE of crummy NC.

At least I have my beautiful patio and firepit!

Plus I was able to get out to the zoo recently.


Anyone else feel as writing lost as me?

Bubba and Squirt’s Mayan Adventure and Latin Flavors Blogfest


Prompt:
What is your favorite Latin-flavor recipe?


One thing I remember very fondly from living in Albuquerque, NM for four years is getting authentic Buñuelos at the state fair every year. We’d track down the Hispanic food center and chow down on at least two delicious treats. And they were big, too. They are similar to sopaipillas but flat and round.

Here is a recipe for Buñuelos.



Now, get excited – today is release day for Bubba and Squirt’s Mayan Adventure by Sherry Ellis!
