It's time for another meeting of THE INSECURE WRITER'S SUPPORT GROUP . . .Better known as IWSG because otherwise, it is a mouthful.
For those who don't know (And you don't???), this is an awesome group of writers, started by the just as awesome Alex J. Cavanaugh, with the purpose to support, help, assist, offer advice, offer a shoulder, cheer on, and about anything else you can think of along these lines. Writing is a roller coaster ride, and writers need all the support they can get.
If you want to join in, head over to the main site and sign up.
Tons of thanks goes to the co-hosts this month: Chris D. Votey, Madeline Mora-Summonte,Fundy Blue, and Chrys Fey!
I'll just start with this month's question: Have you taken advantage of the annual A to Z Challenge in terms of marketing, networking, publicity for your book? What were the results?
As to the rest of the writing world. . .
Things are stumbling along. I'm expecting a release of something small in May/June, and a short story around August. There are several MSs in the works, one which I hope to have done and edited by June, and another sometime this coming Fall (if not earlier).
The main problem is simple sitting down and writing...and some hiccups in plot areas. I'm hoping with Spring's garden weeding, those missing inspirations will click. (For some reason, I get my best story ideas while pulling weeds.)
That's it for this month! Rather calm but that's good.
And what about you? Off in A-Z? Writing moving smoothly? Waiting for something on the edge of your seat? Frustrated? About to give up (we've all been there!)?
How has this last month treated you?
