Insecure Writer's Support Group April, 2015

What happened to March? How did it go by so fast??

Crazy time flies......

So how is everyone? I hope you're all happy, healthy, and safe!

What am I insecure about this month?

1. It's April, which means it's Camp Nano. I'm tackling TWO projects. Why two? Because I have two plot ideas and they both are ready to write. Plus, I've got several days I'll be able to write completely undistracted this month. Yes, I'm taking advantage of this!

2. Our older Macbook crashed and because of it's age (2006) it can't be fixed in the local shop. Which means we'd have to send it away. Which will cost a boat load of money. Which still doesn't guarantee it can be fixed. I lost A LOT of stuff. I mean, look how long we had it? This means I lost a lot of my writing stuff, notes, WIP's and manuscripts. So... that's sad.

How about you? What are you insecure about??

You can find the sign up list here:

You can find lots of other writing encouragement here:


  1. I'm sorry you lost some of your writing! Sounds like you need a new laptop.
    Two projects is ambitious. Good luck!

  2. Ouch. That sucks. The words are in your head somewhere!
    You will find them again.


  3. Wow, two projects! Go you! I've never done Camp Nano but it sounds like it's a great way to be productive :)

  4. I hope your computer can be fixed! I'm so lucky to still have my MacBook Pro working, since I need to go back onto it to hyperlink tables of contents and convert into HTML. I was sadly unable to open Word 2004 when I got my new computer, and was smart enough to not update the operating system on the old computer. I'd be up the creek without a paddle if I didn't have Word on a functional computer.

  5. Wow. Sorry to hear you lost your work.

  6. Right now? I'm thinking I should do a manual back up on my computers. Thanks for the reminder and sorry for your loss.

  7. So sorry about the crash - that's terrible! But thanks for the's been a bit since I've backed something up.

  8. I hope by now that you didn't try to fix it, but only to get what was on the drive off. I have a "cloud" now for that reason. I don't trust lightning strikes not to take out my computer, so I save to the cloud, every day. Hope you'll post your May #IWSG today! Lisa, co-host #IWSG, @

Writer In Motion CP feedback

Hey beautiful guys and dolls! Here it is! My CP feedback edited story. Had a hard time with this, but I hope it makes sense. I've got a post I'm working on I plan to put up after Thanksgiving. Here ya go. Enjoy... Every morning I wake to carnival day.  Today, though, I have my key. If I don’t use it before midnight, my way of escape will gone. It’s a silver key with a twisted metal handle, a sapphire stone half moon and engraved stars. There’s a tiny inscription on the moon, but it’s so small, I’ve never been able to read it.I’ve always kept mine in my jewelry box, but today, I string it on a ribbon and tie it around my neck. My two best friends will be wearing theirs, too, and I wonder how they will escape this carnival of dreams. “What’s it for?” Cress asks as we stand in line for the swings. I run my fingertips over the entire silver surface. “I don’t know. It belonged to my grandmother,” I say. “Whatever.” She shrugs her shoulder in a dismissive way. “Have

Friday's post

Hey all:) I'm taking today and this weekend off. A very, VERY dear, sweet, and close friend of my family passed away this week. And we just got word that his wife's brother, (whom I love like a mother) died last night. So she is dealing with the death of her husband and her brother. Enjoy your weekend, my friends, and hold those you love close. You never know when they will be gone. I will return on Monday, and will have workshop classes every day next week.
