September IWSG and Oscar Wilde

This month is a special month for me so I decided I don’t feel (too) insecure, in fact, I’m happy that I’m finally home after being gone all summer and am actually writing again. Woohoo! I am also very involved (Registration Chairperson)  in the Florida Writers Association's #FWA2016 annual conference coming up in October in Altamonte Springs (Orlando) Florida. I'm more than excited about that.  (Go ahead! Click on the link!)
So what I have to share this month with all my buddies/pals in the writing world and beyond, whether insecure or not, are some writing quotes from one of my favorite authors, Oscar Wilde…

“A writer is someone who has taught his mind to misbehave…”

“The good ended happily, and the bad unhappily. That is what fiction means.”

And this one is especially poignant for Indy authors:

“In old days books were written by men of letters and read by the public. Nowadays books are written by the public and read by nobody.”

Fancy him writing that before the turn of the last century!

SEPTEMBER 7TH QUESTION: How do you find the time to write in your busy day?

I try to set aside a certain time for it. For some reason afternoon works well with me. By then I’ve gotten all the other things done that need attending to and I’m clear and ready to indulge in my stories…

This September our special IWSG co-hosts are:  C. Lee McKenzie,  Rachel Pattison,  Elizabeth Seckman ,  Stephanie Faris,  Lori L MacLaughlin, and  Elsie Amata! Please pay them a visit and thank them for co-hosting this month!

To end… as our Wilde Man would say, “Live! Live the wonderful life that is in you! Let nothing be lost upon you. Be always searching for new sensations. Be afraid of nothing.”
