IWSG for April 2015

The Insecure Writer's Support Group (IWSG) is the brilliant idea of Alex J. Cavanaugh. The purpose of the group is to share doubts and insecurities and to encourage one another. Please visit the other participants and share your support. A kind word goes a long way.

This month there are six awesome co-hosts: Tonja Drecker, Donna Hole, Suzanne Furness, Toi Thomas, Fundy Blue, and Rachna Chhabria.

A huge good luck to everyone participating in the A to Z Challenge this month. I'll be posting with the Untethered Realms group. Click over to our blog every day this month and get a teaser from our books.

Some days of the Challenge will feel like this:


26 days with 26 posts. That's a lot to write. So many fantastic blogs to visit. So little time.

But I believe in you. You can do it.

Take one day at a time. And by the end of the month, you'll be like:

  2. A to Z is always a roller coaster ride, especially when we actually have to get writing and other stuff done too.

    It's fun, though. :-)

  3. Great encouragement for those doing A-Z. I'm not. It doesn't fit with our blog and I couldn't keep up with the daily posts.

  7. It's always helped me to have written, scheduled, and edited my posts ahead of time. I don't know how people without themes or pre-written posts handle it.

  8. Great gifs! I too wish all A-Zers the very best of luck for the coming month's fun.

  12. You should be a cheerleader. It's a crazy, crazy first day.

  13. I'll stop by Untethered Realms to check out your A to Z posts, but there's no way I'd have the time to write that many posts myself.

  14. Love the Batman dancing. Awesome. I need to bookmark it and watch several times a day.

    ReplyDelete
  15. That's so true, although the years I did the challenge, I was more falling o the ground and wanting to sleep a year afterwards instead of dancing. LOL!

    ReplyDelete
  16. Love how you're passing on the encouragement! This is my first time not partaking in the A to Z. Life stuff set me back last year and I'm still catching up. But I'm having so much fun reading everyone's posts.

  17. As long as you don't give up! I do think this takes some persistence.

    ReplyDelete
  18. I'm not participating in the A-to-Z challenge, but a lot of my followers are. I'm already wondering how in the world I'll be able to keep up with all those awesome posts, haha!

  19. Hahaha, excellent examples to cheer people up for the challenge, Christine!

  20. Carrie-Anne, that's how I regularly do things too. Good luck!

    Suzanne, thanks!

    Anna, me too! My son now loves it as well.

    Alex, exactly! :)

    Chrys and Michelle, hope you enjoy!

    Susan, totally crazy! Thank you. :)

    Ken, it is hard to do when one doesn't have much time, but doing it as a group works really well.

    Mary, Adam West's Batman never fails to make me smile.

    Cherie, I think we all do! *LOL*

    SA, such great themes this year!

    Nick, it does!

    Heather, I wonder too!

    Al, thank you! :)

  21. As long as I can do the rope climb on a flat surface and then have them tilt the camera angle, it works! :) Fun post, Christine!

    ReplyDelete
  22. Hehe. Love the gifs. :) Have fun doing the A to Z on Untethered Realms. I didn't sign up for the challenge this year, but it does get a little crazy at the end, doesn't it?!

    ReplyDelete
