IWSG - I'm a Writer

Hello! Today is the first 2016 meeting of The Insecure Writer's Support Group, which posts on the first Wednesday of every month and is run by our Ninja Captain Alex Cavanaugh. This is a place where writers can express doubts and concerns without fear of appearing foolish or weak. Those who have been through the fire can offer assistance and guidance. It’s a safe haven for insecure writers of all kinds. The awesome co-hosts today are Denise Covey, Sheri Larsen, J.Q. Rose, Chemist Ken, Michelle Wallace, and L.G. Keltner! Be sure to visit their blogs and thank them!

Today, I'd like to re-introduce myself! :) It's a new year and I'm hopefully going to do a better job at blogging this year and connecting with other writers!

Hi! My name is Krista McLaughlin. I work as a special education associate in an intermediate elementary school (third through fifth grade), and I also work part-time in retail. Busyness is a frequent struggle for me! I'm not married and have no kids. I'm a serious Trekkie, Hobbit, recent Whovian, and Hufflepuff. My nose is usually stuck in a book or I'm scribbling plot notes on pieces of paper at work. I write YA Contemporary novels and have self-published one novella called "Breathless". I'm still working on hopefully finding an agent this year! I've written twelve novels to date. Crossing my fingers that one of them is good enough! :)

I thought I'd also give you a little more info on places to "find" me! I say a lot of silly things on Twitter and I do have an author page on Facebook where I post a little about what I'm working on! So, feel free to stalk follow me there!

Sorry my post was so late today! I'm off to bed! Feel free to introduce yourself to me below!


  1. Better late than never! It's a good idea to reintroduce yourself from time to time. It helps other bloggers get to know you better. I hope 2016 holds great things in store for you!

  2. That is a fantastic picture of you!! I already knew all these things about you, but it's good to hear again! *hugs*

  3. Nice to (re) meet you Krista! I hope this year beings you everything you're hoping for in your writing :). Good luck!

  4. Hi! I am Sheena-kay Graham and while I have not published a novel yet I have several wips, two pseudonyms, a blog and work full time freelance writing which involves quite a bit of ghostwriting. Happy 2016!

  5. No worries on being late. Trekkers forgive each other!
