Whether or not you like teams, they're all around us. Of course, there are exceptions (night watchmen, for example), but the number of jobs based on teamwork grows year by year. Even if you’re an independent author, you have teammates including beta readers, critique partners, editors, book designers, marketing assistants, and most of all, READERS. You need solid communication among teammates to achieve the best results.

If you're an excellent team player, you’ll be in demand, your opinion will be highly valued, and your ideas will be accepted.

#IWSG Dusting Off Old Manuscripts

Happy March Insecure Writers Support Group!


Hop over to Alex Cavanaugh's blog to join us.

Co-Hosts: Tamara Narayan Patsy Collins M.J. Fifield Nicohle Christopherson
I'm late to post this month because work has been so busy and my friends are going through some big changes. One friend's husband just died, and another good friend (my swimming buddy) is moving to Nashville. *sad face* But it's good to hang with my writer pals in the support group!

March IWSG Day Question: Have you ever pulled out a really old story and reworked it? Did it work out?
Well, I'm actually doing that right now so the outcome is yet to be seen. I started a romantic suspense novel titled Twin Sacrifice back in 2009, and I'm dusting it off to rework it. I haven't had much time to write lately but I hope to get cranking soon.

Write on, friends!
