IWSG

The Insecure Writer's Support Group (IWSG).
They meet the first Wednesday of every month to encourage each other, share doubts and insecurities.

April was a crazy month for me.  I participated in the A-Z Challenge and Camp NaNoWriMo.  At one point I was considering reducing my word count, as is permissible at Camp.  My daughter encouraged me to not give up and strive for the 50K.  I ended with a little over the 50K.  I also got encouragement from an impromptu cabin mate, Shayla,  that I met during the A-Z Challenge. 
 
The month was such a whirlwind adventure trying to visit blogs, comment on comments and write 50K that there was little time left for anything else.  I am ready for life to slow down and get back to a more normal pace.

  1. Congrats on hitting 50K and finishing the challenge. I'm ready for the blogging to slow back down as well. There were a few days it was tiring.

    1. At the first of April we were crazy busy at work and it felt like my life was 24/7 of wacko. Work eventually slowed down. Have to have quiet some times. ;)

  9. Wow, you really did do a LOT in April. I can't imagine doing Nanowrimo AND A-Z in one month. You deserve a break for sure.
