It's time for another meeting of The Insecure Writer's Support Group, otherwise known as. . .
For anyone who might not know what this is, I see it as a type of Alcoholics Anonymous for writers. Not that we want to stop writing. . .oh no! But writing is hard on the psych. We are a strange group who is often misunderstood, frustrated, down, confused, or so euphoric, we hardly know what to do with ourselves. And here is where we come with all of those doubts, fears, suggestions and words of encouragement.

Alex Cavanaugh's helpers this month are: Mary Aalgaard,Bish Denham, Jennifer Hawes, Diane Burton, and Gwen Gardner! Thanks guys for all that you do!
This month I have not been able to reach all of my writing goals. I could blame it on my computer, which was on its death-bed for a few weeks, but I also wasn't in the swing of things. So, this month's question fits right in for me.
How do you celebrate when you achieve a writing goal/ finish a story?
I sit back, enjoy a movie or a book. Or shut the laptop and stroll across my farm. My brain needs a little bit of time to reboot before diving into whatever I need to do next.
Oh, and I don't mind grabbing one shot of Bailey's or a whiskey and just smiling into space, enjoying the freeing feeling that completing something gives.
What about you? What do you do when you hit one of those writing goals or finish up edits or what-nots? Do you go bungee-jumping? Take a few hour nap? Put on those fancy shoes and hit the town?
How do you celebrate?
Now, for something completely different. . .
I reviewed a lovely board book over on Bookworm for Kids a couple of weeks ago, and after seeing it, the author, Deb Gruelle, was nice enough to offer a signed copy to me to give away! *squeal*
If you'd like to take a peek at my review, head on over here.
If you'd like to throw in your hat for a chance to win this beautiful book (and it is pretty with shining stars and everything), just say so below and leave your email address or Twitter name so I can get a hold of you.
The winner will be drawn at midnight on March 17th and be announced here on Kidbits as well as over on Bookworm for Kids on March 18th. The winner will also be contacted over email or Twitter (depending on what they leave in the comments) and has 48 hours to claim their prize.
Little print: The author is sponsoring this giveaway. The winner must be a resident of the U.S. and there is no possibility of a monetary or substitute prize. And who would want that anyway? The book is really a treat as it is.
Super little print: Even if you don't have a little child, I bet you know someone who does and would love the treat!
