It is time for another meeting of the Insecure Writers Support Group – #IWSG.

My hero and most favorite of my mentors Ninja Captain Alex J. Cavanaugh founded this amazing group and it has become THE PLACE to go if you are an insecure writer.

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 1 posting of the IWSG will be Suzanne Furness, Tonja Drecker, Toi Thomas, Rachna Chhabria, Fundy Blue, and Donna Hole!

Make sure to stop by and thank them for all their hard work!

Today also happens to be the first day of the A-Z Challenge for 2015. I’ll be publishing my first post for the challenge in a few hours.This will be my very first year as a participant. To say I’m nervous would be an understatement. 

I thought long and hard before deciding to take part, but I decided ‘Why not’?

Challenge

 Just as I did with my first year of NaNoWriMo, I won’t know if I can complete the A-Z unless I challenge myself. That’s exactly what I will be doing this month. (I also think I have some sort of odd masochistic tendencies…)

What are your plans for April? Will you be joining me for the A-Z? What are YOU challenging yourself to?

Until next month, my friends….

Anniversary Badge

I can’t believe yesterday was my second blogiversary. It seems like yesterday I started my baby. I should have a little party with cake and balloons; unfortunately, I don’t have the time right now.  😦  Busy, busy.

I didn’t think I’d last this long. 😀

Adventures and Challenges. What can I say? I’m a glutton for punishment. I like adventure and I love a challenge; sometimes I make them, sometimes I don’t. At least I try. I’m signed up for the WordPress Blogging 101 course through my sister blog, My Miracle Life. (Goodness knows I need it. After two years I still get confuddled.)

And…I’d been debating joining the A-Z Challenge for over a year because I was always afraid of not being able to manage it. I’ve entered challenges in the past that I haven’t been able to complete. I’m not a fan of the disappointment that follows. Like I mentioned earlier, sometimes I make them, sometimes not. I know this one is tough.

I was on the fence about this year until I saw the BADGE-then plunged…

A2Z2015Here’s why. . .  I’m doing this in honor of Tina Downey, a blogger and friend we lost last August. I miss her so much and this is my little way of paying tribute to her. I hope I can do her proud and finish it. I want to at the very least give it my best shot.

 

Anyone else celebrating their blogiversaries with me? Are you joining the A-Z Challenge this year, too? If so, will it be your first or are you a veteran? Any advice on how not to go nuts during planning would be appreciated. Finally, what in the world are the Kar Grandes? 😀
