Insecure Writers Support Group: April 2015

Wow. I haven't posted anything since the last IWSG. What the hell happened to March? In any case, thank you for stopping by during this month's meeting of the Insecure Writer's Support Group, founded by the one and clonely Alex J. Cavanaugh (who's got a new book coming out next week!!) .

My insecurity this month is...well, that I'm not feeling insecure about anything when I probably should be. I mean, I've got a whole list of stressors to choose from:

1. As of today it's officially official that I'm not doing A to Z this year. This makes me sad because I know I'm going to miss out on a lot of fun, but I also know that nobody around here is going to hold it against me. What would've made me insecure is signing up and then not being able to keep up, which is most certainly what would've happened w/ the month I've got ahead of me. .

2. My family is coming over for Easter, and other than the big ham in my fridge, I haven't done one thing to prepare. Bah, it always comes together; it'll happen again. Besides, as long as we have eggs and Jesus (and that giant ham), what else do we need?

3. I've got a book releasing a few weeks. Last two times this happened I was all in a tizzy, but as I espoused last month, there's only so much I can do. So I'll do it, and whatever will be will be. If you're willing & able to post something about VIBRIZZIO on April 21 (release day) to your blog or FB or Twitter or wherever,  please sign up for my e-mail list & I'll send you some goodies to choose from next week.

4.  I haven't written or done any serious editing to my WIP for a couple of weeks. No guilt; no worries. I think it's to the story's and the writer's benefit to take little breaks from each other. Every once in a while I need to step away and let my creative energies play in other ways...like making this video trailer for the Vibster. Whaddaya think?


So you can see my big concern, right? I'm way too chillaxed. This never lasts---what's lurking around that corner that's going to blow my Fonzie jacket right off? Do you ever feel this way?

You've really just been busy watching Survivor, haven't you? :)

I'm not doing A-Z either. Even though I'll miss it, I think it was a good decision for me for this year.

Hey, if you have Jesus, that's all that matters! Well, unless your family is Baptist, then you better have food as well.
Let me know what I can do to help promote your release!

Here's to a good month. This whole year is flying by! I can do a blast for your book on my blog.

I really don't know HOW writers do A to Z. I did it one year and that was enough for me!

SO excited about Vibby and about ReVirginated!

Hope Easter goes well. My parents invited me to Cincinnati so I will probably go.

Sometimes we need that break. I'm not doing the A to Z either and hope to do some writing.

I have no family coming over, but I still need to think of something to serve on Easter Sunday.

I'm not doing A to Z this year, either. I know I'll also be missing out on the fun, but we can only carry so many things at once, you know :)

We can always benefit from time away from a WIP! After a break, we often return with renewed momentum, ideas, inspiration, and creativity.

I did the shopping for Easter dinner yesterday because I knew A to Z would keep me busy. Do a little chilling for me.

Wishing you a wonderful Easter celebration with your family. I'm counting the days until I get to read Vibrizzio.

*Swoon* Oh, those big green eyes...wait, what were we talking about? OH the trailer? I think it worked ;) I really liked it, actually. I'd just vote to change the music to something a little bit sexier, and a little bit darker. Not much, but just a bit. Right now it seems so bright and full of light, it doesn't quite match the tone of the language - or the pics, which are definitely sexy!! That's my two cents, anyway :) You know me - don't ask, cuz I WILL answer! Hope this helps!

I had to pass on A to Z as well. Between a book coming out this month and working full time, I know I wouldn't have been able to keep up with the challenge.

Love the trailer! You did an awesome job. =)
