My awesome co-hosts today are M. Pax, Karen Walker, and Melissa Maygrove. Please be sure to thank them for their time and effort to make all IWSG members feel welcome.
Today marks the twenty-fourth posting for the IWSG – two years of posting! (Although the official two year celebration won’t be until next month.)
When I started this group, I had no idea it would evolve into one of the largest regular writing feature online. I’m grateful for the three hundred members who post every month. I’ve gotten to know this writing family well and learned so much from you guys. The IWSG is still the greatest blessing and I’ve made some awesome friends.
I have some ideas for the group, things that will move it forward so that it continues to grow and evolve. I’ll be working on those plans over the next couple months.
Today I’ll just offer a word of encouragement for unpublished writers and authors alike: if a dude who never even planned on being an author, let alone writing a best-selling series, can do it, so can you! Don’t ever lose sight of your dream.
And if you know of a writer who needs support, encourage them to sign up. Let’s rock the two-year celebration next month with a slew of new members!
Thanks and be sure to visit other members on the list HERE.
Thanks to everyone who signed up to announce CassaStorm the third week in September! (Some of the questions made me laugh.) For those who missed it, you can sign up HERE. And you don’t have to leave a question – you can just sign up for the details. It won’t be the same stuff on every blog either. I’ll be sending different announcements and information and you can adjust it to fit your blog style. (Plus the questions will help shake it up a bit.) And don’t forget there are cool prizes!

I will be a little scarce the next few days as we are taking off for the beach. (But I will be visiting a lot of IWSG posts today and keeping up when I can with my iPad.) This will be Mini-Alex’s first view of the ocean – wonder what he’ll think of it?
