Thursday2Q: Old/New Year

Taylor Davis is young violinist I stumbled upon during a recent BoTB showdown. I liked her style and found some of her original songs on YouTube.

Howdy, Kittens & Dawgs! How’s the new year going for ya so far? All is well here but then it’s too early to say for sure. Anywho, I’m trying to get back to some of my blogging basics in which I did a lot of Q&A prompts.  Years ago, I co-hosted Thursday Two Questions with another blogger. It was a great way to start conversation while learning new things about one another. The object is to either use questions posed here or to create your own (if you choose to come up with your own then please respond to mine in comments for others to get to know you better).

1. Name one thing about 2017 that you’re glad to say goodbye to? I’ll state the obvious, DH’s eye problem.  I hope that is far, far behind us and that only things will only improve.

2. Tell me one thing that has you excited about the new year? Other than the getting the other two surgeries out-of-the-way for DH’s eye which we hope will fix him right up then the one thing that really has me excited is the prospect of moving into a new home. This is something I’ve wanted for years and we’re committed to trying to see this dream turn into a reality. *fingers crossed*


I hope you enjoyed my little Q&A session. Eventually, I hope to include other Thursday hop connections. If you visit my Daily Blog Hop page you’ll find a few listed. Some of which I participated in last year but my timing was off and I couldn’t latch on to them properly. I hope to change that this year. Wish me luck! I invite you to stroll back over tomorrow for some giggles and a whole lot more of Friday Fun Stuff!  X💋X💋, Cathy

My expectations for #IWSG

InsecureWritersSupportGroup2This comes a few days late, but I’m here at last! I am happy to join in for the first time. The enormous talent in this group humbles me and hope I can learn many things along the way.

I am not a novelist, but I do love to write. This the one joy that stays with me when other interests fade. Years ago, I wrote a few of children’s stories. After failed attempts to get my favorite into print the traditional route, I decided to self-publish with no regrets whatsoever. It was a fun experience, but I realized that I don’t have what it takes to write as a career or do I?

I know I need to shake things up in my journeying, if I want to grow as a serious writer. That being said… *swallow hard* I realize I among published authors (please be kind to me), but I hope The Insecure Writer’s Support Group  monthly exercise will help me in three areas.

  • stretch my lax imagination and unleash those pinned ideas in my mind
  • fine tune my limited writing ability
  • build confidence and energy as a writer

If nothing more becomes of this experience other than allowing me to continue on the amazing highway of blogging as a better writer and meet new friends, then I am okay with this, but if I should go beyond that…then that would be cool.

The gloves are off, I’m ready to write!
