IWSG Wednesday




The first Wednesday of every month is officially Insecure Writer’s Support Group day. Members post about their doubts and fears, discuss struggles and triumphs, and offer words of encouragement to others who are struggling.

May 2 question - It’s spring! Does this season inspire you to write more than others, or not?

Another great question.  As far as my response...who wants to write or do housework, for that matter, when Mother Nature is singing her siren song, seducing us with good weather and gardening, especially when it has been an extremely long winter? Not me.
FYI: The IWSG monthly question can be found under the IWSG Sign-up tab on the Insecure Writer's Support Group Blog.

  1. When it's spring I just want to be outside and enjoy it! Hugs, Valerie

  2. I never realised how grateful I should be that kidnapping is illegal.
    Yay for writers. All of you.

  3. As long as spring is not too hot, stormy, or windy (I DO live in tornado alley) I love being outside, gardening, and making art.

    LOVED your writing/kidnapping theory.

    1. We lived many years in IN. I remember tornado alleys well. You have my sincere sympathies.

  4. Yeah, kidnapping people is frowned upon. When mother nature gets hot, indoors I'll stay.

  5. Hahahaaa...I just left a comment on Alex’s blog that people will either feel a fresh start to write or others will just enjoy being outside. I think most will be outside going for walks, gardening...whatever. I laugh at the kidnapping deal

  9. LOL! That's probably why I write best at night, after the excitement of the day is done and there's no more sun or activity to keep me distracted.

  10. That's hard. It doesn't inspire me any more than other months, apart from the fact that I walk more (and think more during the walks.) But it's harder to write because I want to be outside enjoying it, even if just reading a book!

  11. Siren's song! Perfect way to describe that tantalizing spring with her flowers and gentle breezes. I also like your reason for writing. Staying out of jail is one of my life goals.

  12. I loved the answer to why you write, and all that time in nature will inspire you when the weather isn't so good!

  13. In Florida, it's been feeling like a long summer for months...and summer is still a ways off. Sigh, but I have been enjoying the "season" and doing more outdoors. Until it gets too hot anyway. lol

    1. You probably live in one of the few states that didn't have unusual amounts of snow this year, Chrys:)

  14. It never occurred to me to kidnap anyone. What a great idea! :-)

  15. I hear the siren song luring my writing time to a painful death too. Force of will alone will keep me inside editing. Love the quote, especially the "technically" part.

    1. Editing! You are strong in the force:)

    1. Heh. You like to be outdoors too don't you, Elizabeth?:)

  18. We have more to write about at Spring/summer, In winter we seem to bemoan the fact that's it's cold and we.
    Enjoy this month Sandra.

  19. I love being outside, but I just wish there wasn't so much to do! LOL! I'm complaining a lot this year! Sorry! LOL! But, I have to admit, as much as I love being outside, nothing keeps me from my painting! Big Hugs!
