#IWSG - Down But Not Out


It's the 1st Wednesday of April. Happy Insecure Writers Support Group Day. IWSG is the brainchild of Ninja Captain Alex J. Cavanaugh.

Purpose: 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! Thanks, Alex, for starting this group and keeping it going. And thanks to this month's awesome hosts:  Olga Godim, Chemist Ken, Renee Scattergood, and Tamara Narayan!


Since so many of you are doing the A to Z Challenge, my post is short. My writing was going well until last Thursday. I was feeling so good about not getting the flu, winter cold, etc. (like the rest of my family) when WHAM I got it. The coughing crud. Writing stopped . . . temporarily. I'm less than 10k words from the end of NUMBERS NEVER LIE. I'll get back to it, once I stop coughing up a lung.

Update after going to urgent care: it's not just the "crud." Turns out I have pneumonia. Hopefully the antibiotics will take care of it.

Here's my PSA: if you're coughing your head off, go to the doctor or urgent care. The flu (influenza) is back and pneumonia is no fun.


Good luck to everyone who is doing A to Z. More power to you!

    1. Oh, no! The doc said it's back and tested me for it. No flu, thank goodness.

  5. I'm so sorry. My oldest brought home a head cold. It's a witness to how poorly he washes his hands that we all ended up with a head cold within 24 hours. *sigh* What can you do? Life, eh?

    1. That's awful, Crystal. Hubs is running around with Lysol wipes. Hope your family gets better soon.

  7. I know how you're feeling. It hit me two weeks ago and I started bouncing back last week. Take care of yourself. You'll come back strong. That much I am sure of.

  9. 10,000k to done is awesome! You deserve some self-pampering so you can get back at it after you've recovered. Don't short-change yourself in the rest department.
