Back From the Dead
The writer in me loves this picture, so had to find a good home for it. My "Back From the Dead" blog seemed perfect!
And I am back, at least I am trying to be back. I was so "blown away" during October I didn't land on my feet until now. New year, new resolution, right? Yes. WRITE! that is.
My first publication has been undergoing "audio" translation, which means I've had to listen to and approve each chapter as it was completed by the voice actress. Personally, I love the soft Persian accent she uses for my novel, much of which takes place in Egypt, and whose immortal characters herald back to ancient Persian roots.
But even more importantly for me as a writer is the engagement that was renewed with my characters. Since this is a series, it really made my imagination fuel up. I even dreamed about the main character of book two, and got a great idea for a plot twist that is both timely and invigorating.
I actually can't wait to delve back into this novel. Here's to your New Year's writing resolutions!
Sample of audio follows. Let me know what you think!
Purpose: To share and encourage. Writers can express doubts and concerns without fear of appearing foolish or weak. Those who have been through the fire can offer assistance and guidance. It’s a safe haven for insecure writers of all kinds!
Posting: The first Wednesday of every month is officially Insecure Writer’s Support Group day. Post your thoughts on your own blog. Talk about your doubts and the fears you have conquered. Discuss your struggles and triumphs. Offer a word of encouragement for others who are struggling. Visit others in the group and connect with your fellow writer - aim for a dozen new people each time.

Welcome Back! I couldn't find a link to the audio. I can't wait to hear it!

The link is just above the IWSG photo. It's a thin black bar where you push the arrow on the left to start the sound. It works for me. Let me know if you can hear it!

I could not play the audio. Not sure what to enter in the fields. They are blank.

Hm. I'm not sure what the problem is. I am on Chrome. I will log into Microsoft Edge and make sure it works. It's just a black bar with an arrow on the left that you click to start the sound...

Welcome back from the dead! That picture says it all. :)

Thanks, Michelle! I finally figured out why the audio wasn't playing. Problem is solved! I converted from a WAV to an MP3 file and uploaded the new file. Live and learn.

Your photo certainly grabbed me, Elizabeth! And had me laughing too! I'm glad that your back from the dead. Sometimes life knocks you totally off your feet, but what's important is that you get back up on them and start walking again. So what if it took you a couple of months ~ you're walking. Wishing you fulfillment as you tackle your writing in this new year!
