Welcome Readers and fellow Writers, to the April 2019 online meeting of the Insecure Writer’s Support Group! Founded by author Alex Cavanaugh and comprised of writing members just like you (and me), featuring writing tips, resources, articles, contests, and IWSG swag! See what we’re all talking about here and join us as we share our writing journeys.
*We meet on the first Wednesday of every month – join us and enjoy!
Visit our gracious Co-hosts, and let them know you’re here: J.H. Moncrieff, Natalie Aguirre, Patsy Collins, and Chemist Ken!
April is National Poetry Month!
Did you know the oldest American picture book is still in print? That’s right, and it’s all about cats! While there are probably millions of newer books in circulation, the point is that good old fashioned print books still beat out E-books every time at story time. As I recall, the turning of a page was as exciting as what might be on the next – before the age of Kindle; which, by the way, is also a term for a group of kittens by the same cat mom ;-)
The optional IWSG question of the month is: “If you could use a wish to help you write one scene/chapter of your book, which one would it be?” My wish would be to interview a hypnotist, and I think that’s just what I’ll do – thanks for asking!
Best wishes to all who’ve signed up for the 10th annual April A to Z Challenge! Having participated in a few, I can honestly say it is one of the most exhilarating (as well as rewarding), and all around fun writing exercises, I’ve ever experienced. In fact, I’d planned to sign-up for this year’s challenge, even bragged about it months in advance, before an old antagonist appeared with other plans.
See, for over half my life I’ve been followed by a Moonshadow (my way of making light of an often dark situation). In reality, it’s called Epilepsy, which is normally kept in check with medication. If you’ve ever tried to run under water you can understand why (for this challenge, anyway) my participation will consist of reading as many posts as time allows between clarity, work, and pharmaceutically induced inertia ;-) There are still 3 more days to sign up!
Just so ya know, my theme for this year’s challenge would have been Unique Destinations such as:
C is for…Conshelf and Coober Pedy
Happy Writing, Everyone!
