Hello all! It’s the first Wednesday of the month and we know what that means:
It’s time for another meeting of the Insecure Writers Support Group – #IWSG.
My hero, the amazing Ninja Captain Alex J. Cavanaugh founded this group and it has become a safe haven if you are an insecure writer.
Click the image if you would like to be a part of the #IWSG family. You won’t regret it.
Purpose: To share and encourage. Writers can express doubts and concerns without fear of appearing foolish or weak.
The awesome co-hosts for the April 4 posting of the IWSG are Olga Godim, Chemist Ken, Renee Scattergood, and Tamara Narayan!
March has come and gone, but I did get some stuff done. I finally switched my PA driver license to NY, which is a big deal for me. Now all I have to do is get myself back on the road. Baby steps, I suppose. I can’t believe it’s been almost seven years since I’ve driven. Fear is going to have to take a back seat this year. I don’t have time for it!! Like my neuropsychologist says, ‘Anything can happen to anyone at any time. Don’t let your fear overtake you.’ He’s right.
The same holds true for writing, too. I have to stop being so afraid of everything and throw myself out there. I did it for a while but crept back into my shell when the results weren’t as I had hoped. I’m braver now. Everyone in the house calls me Chef Eva because I’ve gone back to my love of cooking and haven’t set off the smoke detectors once! 🙂
It’s been a good month, a really good month.
I’d love to hear your answers to this question so I can help myself.
Sometimes it feels like my shovel is made of foam and I’m digging into steel. Good luck with the driving. Maybe you can start somewhere (or sometime) where there is no traffic.
Glad it’s been a good month for you. Hey, if you can get back into driving after 7 years, you can certainly jump back into writing. Take it slow at first, but the creative juices will return and you’ll never want to stop writing.
Good on you for getting back out there. NY licence… That can be quite the ordeal. It took me 7 trips to the DMV to get mine. You can bet it was pretty hard to give up that licence when we moved to Florida. Baby steps. You’ve got this!
Good job, Eva. You’ll get there. I’m glad you’re cooking again. Regarding driving, just take tiny trips at first to build up your confidence. Before long, you’ll be driving everywhere.
I understand fear. Every moment you move forward is proof of your bravery. I’m proud of you.

So glad to hear you are finding your groove again. Cheering you on.
Hey Eva! You have the correct license now – no excuses. If nothing else, find a parking lot and practice. You can do it!
I’m so happy to hear things are going well. But I’m confused…setting off the smoke alarm is bad? I call that the Seckman family dinner bell. 🙂
Hugs and love, Eva!!!
