May Is A New Beginning - An IWSG Post

Hi everyone and Happy May! Who else is so excited to see the flowers blooming and feel the warmth of the sunshine on their skin? Yes, Mother Nature, bring it on!

The beginning of a new month means it’s time for the Insecure Writer's Support Group, which I totally missed last month. My apologies everyone!

I did not open my WIP one time in April. Okay, that’s a fib. I actually opened it on April 30th to try to start writing but then the phone rang and that was the end of that. I didn’t do any writing, except on here, in April. Yikes!

That’s okay though. I anticipated that April would be a tough month on the writing front with work being as crazy as it was, I’m not surprised my WIP was left untouched. May is a new beginning. Just like the flowers are beginning to bloom again, so can my passion for writing.

I have plenty of time before the really great weather gets here and draws my attention to the beach rather than the office chair. Or in today’s case, my comfy chair.

In that time, I can look at what I’ve done so far, see what needs to be added and do some more editing. and start considering who I can reach out to in the fall to take a look at it to provide their feedback. Whew! Now that’s something to be insecure about, but I have plenty of time to worry about that. For now, I’ll enjoy my own editing process. That’s not nearly as intimidating.

Do you get nervous when people review your work? Do you love the warmer weather?

See everyone this afternoon!
