IWSG: Family Customs and Traditions

It’s time for another group posting of the Insecure Writer’s Support Group! founded by Alex J. Cavanaugh. Time to release our fears to the world – or offer encouragement to those who are feeling neurotic. If you’d like to join us, click on the tab above and sign up. We post the first Wednesday of every month. Your words might be the encouragement someone needs. You can also join us on twitter using the hashtag #IWSG, or on the Facebook page.

Now, IWSG hosts have changed up the format in an effort to make it more fun and interactive.Every month, they will announce a question that members can answer in their IWSG Day post. These questions may prompt you to share advice, insight, a personal experience or story. Include your answer to the question in your IWSG post or let it inspire your post if you are struggling with something to say.

March
4 question - Other than the obvious holiday traditions, have you ever included any personal or family traditions/customs in your stories?

MY ANSWER: Yes, I often use reading and the teaching profession in my writing. Both of these are traditions, or popular choices, in my family.

How about you? Have you included any traditions, or customs, in your writing?

What a great idea. Teachers are full of them! Mine involves cereals!

Yolanda Renée said...

My experiences highly influence my writing and end up in the story/s all the time! As a teacher it would be easy to do!

I've added some holiday traditions into my Disaster Crimes series. One thing that I did add that's not holiday related was in Flaming Crimes. I had Beth kick a rock while she and Donovan walked around the block. She also picked flowers/weeds/ When I was little, my family would walk around the block a lot, and I always kicked a rock and picked flowers/weeds.

Every so often I'll have a character who likes to read. I guess that comes from my own experiences!

Vampires is not at all like in the movies or books. Sure, I understand. You are young you have the whole world open to you. You can be anything that you choose if you apply yourself and try hard to work toward that goal. But being a Vampire is not what it seems like. It’s a life full of good, and amazing things. We are as human as you are.. It’s not what you are that counts, But how you choose to be. Do you want a life full of interesting things? Do you want to have power and influence over others? To be charming and desirable? To have wealth, health, and longevity, I can help you solve any problem you are having
(1) If you want your ex back.
(2) If you want to stop having bad dreams.
(3) You want to be promoted in your office.
(4) You want women/men to run after you.
(5) If you want a child.
(6) You want to be rich.
(7) You want to tie your husband/wife to be yours forever.
(8) If you need financial assistance.
(9) If you want to stop your divorce.
(10 If you want to divorce your husband.
(11) If you want your wishes to be granted.
