#IWSG – APRIL 2018

Hello all! It’s the first Wednesday of the month and we know what that means:

IWSG-badgeIt’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.

April 4 question – When your writing life is a bit cloudy or filled with rain, what do you do to dig down and keep on writing?  Honestly, I haven’t dug down deep enough yet. Working on it. 

I’d love to hear your answers to this question so I can help myself.
