Welcome all to the support thread for May 2023.
Happy Birthday to May babies.
Many have worked hard and achieved important milestones this past month, thanks for sharing, everyone.
Thank you, everyone who continues to participate in these threads – it helps others when you do participate, sometimes more than you think.
If anyone has specific questions or concerns I may help with, please let me know.
Sometimes researching particular topics is needed in order to write a story that is both believable and realistic.
This month I am highlighting Rebecca Shedd’s Writer’s Resources blog, which I have found useful for different eclectic needs.
Here is her blog’s homepage:
and her mission statement:
Here are two of my favorite articles of hers:
Rebecca has put her blog on hold for now, so there won’t be any new entries in the “foreseeable” future.
Her archives hold a lot of information that is focused for the writer, and I suggest looking through them, if you find the time to do so.
Also, ChoiceBeat Zine deserves a shout-out!

It is wonderful to share everyone’s journey during the month; both highs and lows help each one of us realize that we are not alone in our journey.
If anyone has something special going on in May, kindly let us know!
My May goal is to work on my Patchwork’s project — This month I hope to complete the rewrite of the last chapter of the common route.
I figure I have 15,000 words worth of material to work with for this month’s goal to be achieved.
This is the last chapter of the common route, so once done, I will be sending it to Alpha readers for its first complete testing round.
Happy writing for the month of May.
