And further surprise! I did not write a post for the question this month. I blame the start of school, the pace of my freelance writing (picking up), and who I am as a person. *insert shrug emoji*

A special announcement was part of this month’s blog hop. I won’t make you click around to figure out what it is. Instead, I will tell you: IWSG is hosting another contest for short stories to be featured in their anthology. Theme-Mystery/Crime/Thriller that has something specific to do with time (a clock, a countdown, something time related.) Word count 3500-6000. Due by November 1st, 2017. Go here to check that out and perhaps enter.

The question for the regular monthly hop is: Have you ever surprised yourself with your writing? For example, by trying a new genre you didn’t think you’d be comfortable in?

insecure-writers-support-group-badge The awesome co-hosts for this month of September are Tyrean MartinsonTara TylerRaimey Gallant and Beverly Stowe McClure. Go give their posts a gander if you want more satisfying answers to things like questions and wordier posts with cool insights.

Although I didn’t take a whack at the question myself, I’d be interested in hearing your thoughts. Feel free to ruminate about it in the comments and I will be sure to answer.

To make up for the lack of postage here, I present to you this fun otter meme. Everyone loves otters. Laugh at the cute otter, and forgive my lack of ambition this month.

I said good day
