Hi there, new friends and old! What the heck's a Z ball, you ask? Well, it's what I dropped the other day. lol I posted on time every single day during Blogging A-Z and kept with my theme of favorite fictional characters ... except on Monday. I dropped the Z ball!!!
I know ... off with my head, right? Life just got a hold of me, which is okay since I didn't really have a good Z character anyway. I was going to post on Zelda from the popular video game Legend of Zelda (cuz I lurve it) but who cares about that anyway ... total yawn.
I'm back today for the monthly posting on the first Wednesday of every month in the Insecure Writer's Support Group.
Click on the pic above to get to IWSG HQ over at Alex J Cavanaugh's blog, where writers and bloggers around the blogosphere take this opportunity to post their fears, insecurities, advice, and goals. It's always a refreshing pick-me-up to know we're not alone in this sometimes dejecting endeavor.
As for me personally, I'm taking a few days off from the blogosphere to tend to my WIP and finish the first draft. The month of April was awesome! I'm so glad I participated and met new friends and hobnobbed with old ones. I think the most valuable part about this blogging world is not the increased opportunity to publish and sell lots of books, but to nurture genuine friendships and support one another. How great is it to read another blogger's post about the rejection they just received--not because they got rejected, but because we know we're not alone? Or to read about the struggles of another writer's writer block? Or to read about all the tips from a writer's conference someone cared enough to share? So many great reasons to be a blogger and share the journey, so that when that journey does find a destination of success, we don't celebrate alone, but with all the amazing friends we've made along the way.
Friends like you! So thank you, for sharing this journey with me. I appreciate all of you who take time to read and comment so so much! Don't forget about the First Love's Blogfest on May 14:
Feel free to peruse my archives for my fave characters throughout the month of April. I'll see you back in a few days. I'll be paying visits to other blogs so I'll see you around the blogosphere! :)
