IWSG for April, Yes, I Finally Posted Again!

Insecure Writer’s Support Group Website!!!

Finally, I’ve made it back to my lonely (without me) keyboard! Life has been a roller coaster for sure these last five months and I’m happy to say my life is just about to become my own again, mostly. I’m also proud to have done the job I’ve done for my family, the school (leasing from us) and for the girls that go to that school and will be the main beneficiaries of our renovations. Yet I’ve missed two months of IWSG posts and I’m horrified! So, today had to happen. I don’t want to lose my place on the list and have to start over!
This construction project gave me a boost of confidence. It also showed me I can do something if I put my mind to it, something I didn’t know I could do, and I learned as I went. I used the resources that presented themselves to me and, with that help, I actually succeeded at the task set before me.
The main Lodge on our property complete with new siding, paint and lights!
I hope to take this learning experience with me, back into my writing work, and get what I need to do done. I realize that though I’m a writer, which usually means working alone, that I have resources available and that I don’t have to do everything by myself.
So, here I go, on another adventure into the worlds I’ve “created”, the worlds still waiting for me to give them an opening into “my” world, the world that I’ve just enhanced with beautifying acres of buildings and land. If I can do it in this world, surely I can do it in the ones in my head!

  1. Glad to see you back, Lisa! Sometimes it's good to do something completely different. Sounds like the construction project served a good purpose and helped you. I wouldn't want you to lose your spot on the IWSG list!. And people do. I started out at #315 and now I'm #86! Have a good one!

  2. Lisa! I saw your name in my email inbox and thought maybe you were doing the A to Z Challenge. But I'm happy to read your post and glad to know you're well.

  3. Hi Lisa - good to see you again ... and congratulations on the renovations - they do look good - wonderful photo of the lake with the sun and snow ... enjoy being back .. cheers Hilary

  4. Glad it's all coming together!
    I never took you off the list, so you're still good.

  5. Love the new cover for Evangaline. I still need to read the book. I got it over a year ago! I'm so slow at everything. I suppose I need to apply myself to writerly stuff too.

  6. The lodge is gorgeous. I'd stay there.

    We are not alone on this journey.

  7. The lodge looks beautiful. And look at that sunrise! Wow!

    Bravo on your renovation and happy writing. :)
