IWSG Post for April

Hey guys! Guess what day it is! It's the first Wednesday of the month, so time to participate in the IWSG blog hop. It's a lot of fun! Check it out, you might want to joint us insecure writers!

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!

Let’s rock the neurotic writing world!

 Twitter handle is @TheIWSG and hashtag is #IWSG.

Every month, we announce a question that members can answer in their IWSG post. These questions may prompt you to share advice, insight, a personal experience or story. Include your answer to the question in your IWSG post or let it inspire your post if you are struggling with something to say. 

Remember, the question is optional!

April 1 question - The IWSG’s focus is on our writers. Each month, from all over the globe, we are a united group sharing our insecurities, our troubles, and our pain. So, in this time when our world is in crisis with the covid-19 pandemic, our optional question this month is: how are things in your world?

The awesome co-hosts for the April 1 posting of the IWSG are Diane Burton, JH Moncrieff, Anna @ Emaginette, Karen @ Reprobate Typewriter, Erika Beebe, and Lisa Buie-Collard!

Hey Guys,

How are you doing? Are you staying safe? Is your family O.K.?

This past month has been crazy. Can you believe everything that has happened?

First, it was a Leap Year. Then a week later, we had Daylight Savings, a full moon, and Friday the 13th. That week was horrible. Now, we have COVID-19 going on. March has been an epic disaster. I’m not going to talk about the virus, because there are better resources out there than my little newsletter such as the CDC and WHO.

Anyway, so are you safe at home or still out in the trenches? What have you been doing with your time?

I’m still in the trenches, but we’ve put some policies to limit exposure to my staff at the clinic. It’s been interesting to say the least, and not only that, but I’ve had some of the most bizarre cases I’ve ever seen. It has been exhausting. Maybe the world has turned the wrong way on its axis or the planets aren’t lined up the right way. Whatever it is I hope things get back to normal and quickly.

Besides going to work, I’ve been staying home, writing, and reading. There have been a ton of free and reduced books posted on Amazon for everyone that is staying home. Check them out you might find a new author you like. I think it’s also happening on the other platforms (Nook and Kobo) but I don’t read on there. The other thing I really like is Kindle Unlimited. It’s $9.99/month and you get to “rent” as many books as you can read up to 10 at a time. How that works is that the authors get paid by the page you read in their books, and that helps small indie authors put food on the table for their families.

I’m starting a Christmas story about a young woman being stranded in a snow storm and getting rescued by a really hot cowboy. It’s a lot of fun and I can’t wait to share it with you closer to the holidays. The finishing touches have gone on my short story and the cover was done this past weekend. It’s about a woman named Katie that goes home for a friend’s wedding and gets roped into helping her. She is assigned to do tasks with a man that she’s had a crush on since high school, but he doesn’t know that. It is super cute. (At least, I think so.) I’ll send you an email with a link to a free copy as a thank you for being on my newsletter list. Look for that in the middle of April.

Other than that, I’ll leave you with some cute pictures to help brighten your day. The first one is of nine-week-old Tank and the second one is grown up Tank. He really does eat the mail. One day, he ate a two-hundred-dollar check. That was an embarrassing phone call to make.

Stay safe and I’d love to hear from you and see pictures of your pets!

Lots of hugs,


P.S. When you comment put your blog at the end so I can go visit!
