IWSG: Reading More! and Wednesday Words

Happy 1st Wednesday!

Welcome to the Insecure Writer's Support Group, a safe haven for us insecure, self-conscious, often anxious, always nervous writers to vent and voice our issues without being judged. This group was created by the awesomely talented ninja Alex J. Cavanaugh and now even has its own website! Visit either for the list of co-hosts and other group members, and feel free to join!

So today, I realized I actually spend too much time on my phone. Not particularly tweeting, which I do a lot on my non-writer Twitter account, but playing this little game called Pixel Dungeon. I've played over 500 times (you die very easily. Think Rogue or Castle of the Winds, if you're familiar with dungeon RPGs). I can play for hours because the goal is to get to the bottom and beat a demon, I think, and if it's like other dungeon games, go all the way back upstairs and leave victorious. What's more: there are 4 characters from which to choose, so you can play 4 different ways!

Problem with that, not only are my eyes extremely tired, but I could've been reading. *slaps forehead* I have to do more of it. I used to read SO much. My cousin's pop-pop remembered that about me the other day, and I blame college for taking my enthusiasm for reading away. I should've majored in Music. Less reading. lol

That said, today I will begin reading Natalie Whipple's Transparent. Definitely visit her page today, because she's also doing a cover reveal for Trust Me, I'm A Ninja, the sequel to her novel Relax, I'm a Ninja.

Today is also my Wednesday Words, so because I'm vowing to read more, I thought I'd connect my two topics. :) Using, I will be posting a few random lines from a random page from Transparent, so you get to see what I'm reading, and I get to see what I'm getting myself into.

There are 352 pages in the Kindle Edition, so Random has 136.

That's about 38.6% into the book. There are about 36 lines in that vicinity, so Random has chosen.....line 5.

He could be messing with us, and Mom would never recover from that kind of betrayal. She'd never try again.

Having read the sample, I know a little about what this is about. I can't wait to see how things turn out for Fiona.


  1. Maybe you should hide your phone... Just don't lose it!

  2. My phone broke, so it might just be a blessing in disguise :)

  3. I play waaaaaay too many games on my phone and I'm starting to realize how much time I waste doing so. But cutting back is hard...

  4. If I don't read for at least a little while every day, I get cranky. Just ask my husband. :)

  5. I don't read as much as I used to, either.. *shifty eyes* Hope you enjoy Transparent!
