June IWSG Post and my Secrets

Most of us want 2020 to pass fast, as we all just want to put this year which brought the Covid-19 pandemic into our lives, far behind us. Like everyone else I too want this year to get over quickly or a miracle to happen where the world gets a medicine that can get cure us of this miserable virus. I’m also praying for a vaccine, but I know that won’t happen fast. Luckily, I’m so busy writing that all my anxieties are at a distance, watching me from far.

Another saving grace is that it has started raining in Bangalore and the cool winds are a pleasure. Many other cities in India are hot and some hotter.

Now to focus on IWSG. This time I was ready with my IWSG post. IWSG (Insecure Writers Support Group) is an online group of writers, posting on the first Wednesday of every month. As we writers love to talk about our writing, we also love grumbling, atleast I do, our posts usually focus on our writing related issues, worries, fears and doubts. Do visit the IWSG website, its full of informative posts.

 IWSG is the brainchild of the creative, talented and brilliant Alex J Cavanaugh, the author of several amazon bestsellers: CassaStar, CassaStorm, CassaFire and Dragon of the Stars.

 June 3 question - Writers have secrets! What are one or two of yours, something readers would never know from your work?

Let me think what are my secrets. One would be that I’m a very insecure writer, always thinking that I’m not good enough, that my writing sucks. Whenever someone praises my writing or story, I feel they are lying. My second secret would be that every time I get bugged with someone, I base my antagonist on them, by giving the villain in my story, their traits. Promise me that you won’t reveal my secrets to anyone.

I’m looking forward to reading all your secrets, I’m sure they must be naughty 😉.

P.S. Hope everyone is keeping safe!
