It's time for another installment of the ISWG. For those who'd like to learn more about this supportive and helpful membership, please click on the name of our illustrious host: :Alex J. Cavanaugh

This month's question was a doozie, and well worth posting about: What pitfalls would you warn other writer's to avoid on their publication journey. 
There's so much I've learned from drafting PAWN OF THE GODS, that I hardly know where to begin. I could tell you all not to edit your book as you go. I did this and it took twice the time to finish my first draft, but this is advice lots of writers give, IMO.

Phobias About Mirrors

Hello all,
Last week the subject of mirrors arose in a couple of conversations, and I quickly learned that some of my friends were creeped-out by them. I understood this since I had similar feelings after watching Damian Omen years ago. I couldn't look at my reflection without half expecting to find a cloaked figure standing behind me.  Luckily, I moved past it. 

As a writer, I found it fascinating to learn that some people never do. One of my friends said she refused to look into the mirror at night if she wakes to use the bathroom. Another person imagined a strange face staring back at her from an alternate dimension behind the mirror, every time she looked in one.

The above phobias and fears got me to wondering if anyone else shared similar feelings about mirrors. If so, it would be interesting to know what they are.  Until next time, happy writing.
