#IWSG Oct 2018: Picking myself up again

It’s time for another Insecure Writer’s Support Group post to boost my confidence and encourage myself to engage with the writing community. The IWSG post on the first Wednesday of every month. This month’s co-hosts are:  Dolorah, Tanya Miranda, Chemist Ken, and Christopher D.

You can find out more about it here. This week’s theme is:  Home What’s home to your MC? Is it a place? A person? An idea?
