Writers I Like as Friends : #IWSG

Badge for Insecure Writer's Support Group

It’s the 1st Wednesday of the month again. That’s when I take part in Alex J. Cavanaugh’s Insecure Writer’s Support Group. The awesome co-hosts for the February 3 posting of the IWSG are Louise – Fundy Blue, Jennifer Lane, Mary Aalgaard, Patsy Collins at Womagwriter, and Nancy Gideon!

Today I will share some writers I have become friends with over the years as I answer the February 3rd IWSG question:

Blogging is often more than just sharing stories. It’s often the start of special friendships and relationships. Have you made any friends through the blogosphere?

I guess I am as introverted on my blog as I am in real life, but there are some people whose blogs I really enjoy reading because I like the writers as people. I enjoy their personalities and their perspectives.

Jacqui Murray

One of these writers is Jacqui Murray. I am constantly amazed at what she accomplishes on her blogs and in her publishing career. You can catch up with her on her blog Worddreams.

Liz A.

Another of my favorite bloggers is Liz A. She is a substitute teacher, a knitter, and a writer (although not necessarily in that order). I love reading stories from her classroom experiences. She has a wit with just the right amount of sarcasm. You can read her stories at Laws of Gravity.

Nancy Beach

Another blogger who I have gotten to know more personally is Nancy Beach. I have appreciated her perspective and her prayers over the past few years. She is a writer of great depth and insight. I highly recommend her blog, Filled to Empty.

Other Great Writers

Wonderful writers like these are one of the highlights of blogging. It is also a great part of belonging to a blogging group like the Insecure Writer’s Support Group. Check out some of the other bloggers in our group. And if you are a writer, consider joining us.

About Heather Erickson

I am an author, writer, and speaker, and homeschooling mom of 3. Since doctors diagnosed my husband, Dan, with stage IV lung cancer in 2012, I’ve focused my writing and speaking on helping cancer patients and their families advocate for themselves and live life to the fullest, despite their illness. My goal is to help people face cancer with grace. My books are available at Amazon.com:

Woot! What a pleasant surprise, Heather. Now I’m off to visit the rest of those on the list.

Have a wonderful week.

I’m honored that you included me. Blogging is such an interesting way to get to know people, and we do get to know each other. I enjoy your blog, too. If my life were a drinking game, one would have to take a drink every time I say, “in this blog I follow…”
