Welcome Writers! And a Happy Creative Beginnings Month to everyone!
There is so much to celebrate this month, and not the least of which is today, and here’s why: Take a look around our awesome group by clicking the links below and check out the extensive list of writing tips and resources offered by the Insecure Writers Support Group, founded by Alex Cavanaugh, right here and right now on this first Wednesday of the month, when IWSG members convene through blogging, Facebook, and Twitter to talk about whatever is on our writing minds and agendas. See what we’re all talking about here.
As for me:
I successfully completed my third April A – Z Challenge! In addition, I wrote four chapters for a memoir project, and two newsletters. Through it all I asked myself only once if perhaps I’d overestimated my own capabilities, and who’s going to care if I do or if I don’t? That’s when my inner-voice whispered, “Be your own hero; it’s worth it.” So I did, and it was. ;-) It’s been an exhilarating month!
On behalf of the young companions I’ve had since school has been interrupted, tomorrow is Two Different Colored Shoes Day, and we hope you’ll all be inspired! I think I’ll just Get Caught Reading a Mystery ;-)
Happy Springtime Writing!
You of all people should never doubt your capabilities. Your writing never ceases to captivate me. You consistently deliver both style and substance. I can hardly believe you tackled a memoir project and two newsletters along with the A TO Z.
Congratulations on all your writing achievements, dear friend diedre, and enjoy the rest of your week!
Coming from you, dear Maestro, I am honored by your compliments. Thank you ;-)
Your blog post is the first that I have visited today. Because of a pressing matter that had to settle for my resident permit, I am late in starting to visit the IWSG blogs today. BUT your the title of your post made my heart sing when I saw it and gave me so much encouragement. "Be Your Own Hero!" It takes a lot to get out there and validate yourself without waiting on someone else to validate you. You are doing that and it is a balm to my soul. Keep on being your own hero.ReplyDelete

Thank you, Sir ;-) Some accomplishments are sure worth shouting about.
Sounds like you had a busy month! I like the idea of being your own hero :-)ReplyDelete

Yes, and the month flew by in a flurry of about 11 thousand words ;-) Whew!
Thanks for chiming in!
What a productive month you've had! I completed my first A to Z, but didn't get much more writing than those daily blogs accomplished. Love that--"Be your own hero." Thanks.ReplyDelete
Hi J Q Rose!Delete
Congratulations! The A - Z Challenge is truly the best writing exercise I've ever encountered.
Thank you for coming by!
HiYa, dIEDRE ~ReplyDelete
Be your own hero -- that is a really good motto.
Sometimes I'm my own fire-breathing dragon. Then I look around for the knight in armor who's coming to do the slaying. And seeing no one, I think: Oh, I guess that's me, TOO!

And who better to trust with our own well-being than ourselves?
Thanks for riding by, partner ;-)

I'm small potatoes compared to what you accomplish EVERY month - but thank you! It feels good ;-)
