#IWSG - April - Bursting with excitement and awesomeness!!!

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!

Posting: The first Wednesday of every month is officially Insecure Writer’s Support Group day.
Our Twitter handle is @TheIWSG and hashtag is #IWSG.

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

April 1 optional 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?

Hello sequestered peeps!! I hope this blog post finds you well.
It's been a difficult and trying time in our world. Honestly, my emotions have been all over the place, and I guess that's to be expected, but it's not any way to live.
My family is trying to stick to a schedule so that we can get stuff done, even if we don't feel like it. (That one is aimed mostly at The Teen).
No matter what, we are resilient.
We will prevail.
