It’s time for the Insecure Writer’s Support Group. The purpose is to share and encourage. Writers can express doubts and concerns without fear of appearing foolish or weak. Those who have been through the fire can offer assistance and guidance. It’s a safe haven for insecure writers of all kinds! A big THANKS to Ninja Captain Alex J. Cavanaugh for starting this group and keeping it going. And to this month's awesome hosts Hart Johnson, Chemist Ken, Candilynn Fite, Terri Rochenski, Clare Dugmore, and Lilica Blake!
Birds woke me up this morning. If you live in the south/southwest, that may not seem significant to you. After the brutal winter we had this year with record low temps (Polar Vortex) and record snowfall (over 150”), birds definitely signal that spring has finally come. The first signal of spring was sunshine. Then the snow melt. Amid the brown grasses, I see bits of green. And the tip of a lone tulip is pushing its way out of the ground. On Monday, we hit 63°.
Tomorrow we’re supposed to be in the 30s. That would almost be depressing. Except. I heard bird songs this morning. That gives me hope that the warmth will be back.
In many ways, that’s how it is with our writing careers. We go through bad patches, we get rejections, we feel like nothing good is ever going to happen. Having hope gets us from the depression of winter to the optimism of spring.
To everyone who is participating in the A to Z Challenge, good luck!
