IWSG & Parallels

Wednesday, May 4, 2016

It's another IWSG posting day, where writers far and wide share their insecurities and offer encouragement to each other. The captain of the IWSG ship, Alex, has a wonderful group of able assistants who will be helping him make the rounds today -  Stephen Tremp, Fundy Blue, MJ Fifield, Loni Townsend, Bish Denham, Susan Gourley, and Stephanie Faris!

My insecurity today? April was a crazy-crazy-crazy month and I wonder if I have any fuses left that haven't been totally burned out. 

Anyway, there's good news, the IWSG's anthology is out this week!

  2. I was so burnt that I forgot all about IWSG but I'm firing other cylinders and will be sure to be back on top fully in time to do my June IWSG post. Just prioritize Joy and watch that energy level rise. *Hugs*

  5. April was exhausting for me as well but I'm believing that this month and the rest of this year will be super productive and successful for us all.

  6. Hi, J.L.! I'm making the rounds as an IWSG co-host today, and from what I have been reading, April has been quite the month for everyone! Me too! Several of you have been showcasing the anthology, and I can't wait to get my hands on a copy. It's exciting to see so many authors I've met through the IWSG! I hope all is well with you and that your writing is flowing! Take care!

  7. I don't anyone who participated in the A to Z Blog Challenge has a fuse that is not burned out. It comes with the challenge. Hope you recover and regenerate quickly.

    Shalom,

  9. If you're feeling that burn-out feeling coming on, maybe you should take a few days off from writing?

  12. April was an insane month for me, too, though I didn't do the A-to-Z. I'm really enjoying May, so far.

  16. I'm hearing the same thing from almost everyone. Seriously, I feel the same way. What do we do, other than just keep plugging along? Sorry, I'm late, Joy. Life slows for no man, or woman.
