Don’t be Shy we are all Insecure here…

InsecureWritersSupportGroup3

It is the first Wednesday of the month and that means it is time for the monthly meeting of the Insecure Writers Support Group #IWSG. As writer’s we have our moments when we are full of confidence and sadly, our other moments when rejection and self -doubt seem to be smothering us. If you experience your own share of days filled with insecurity or if you have a bit of inspiration you would like to spread around please join us. We would love to give you a great big group hug.

A-Z Challenge Reflection Post

 

A-to-Z Reflection [2014]

With one breath I want to say I am so glad the A-Z Blogging Challenge is over and with my next breath I miss it so much and I am already looking forward to and planning for next year.

This was my third year of participating and my first year as an ambassador. It was also the first year I had a theme and also the first year I pre-wrote some of my posts. Being prepared certainly did take some of the stress away and I plan to pre-write even more next year.

Fraggin’ Fantastic

 

By the time Friday rolls around my mind is so full of ½ thoughts, lists and ideas but lucky for me, the lovely, Mrs. 4444 over at Half Past -Kissin Time came up with the solution for all those Fragments. Friday Fragments is the place to unload all of those great ideas that just are not enough for a full post…yet.

The best part about Friday Fragments is without a doubt, the friends.

To learn more about Friday Fragments, how you can participate and the news on the BIG anniversary coming up:

We are more than half way through this year’s A-Z Blogging Challenge. I have posted on time and have visited at least ten other blogs, each day of the challenge so far. I am still so excited that my ‘theme reveal’ post has eighty + comments.

If you have time I hope you will visit the A-Z’s of mental health awareness. Today’s post is on PTSD.

My editing on the book has suffered. I am going to try to catch up on that today.

I took a much needed break last Saturday and spent a glorious day with my daughters and grandkids. We had breakfast at Applebee’s with the Easter Bunny, to support my cousin’s little girl’s gymnastics team. The gymnasts actually served the breakfast and cleared the tables. They are a very impressive group.

GRIEF

Unfortunately grief is something I know too much about.  I lost my father suddenly in January. Two weeks later I lost a friend. In February I lost one of my closest friends after a seventeen-month battle with cancer.

In 1969 psychiatrist, Elizabeth Kubler Ross wrote one of the most influential books in the history of psychiatry. The book, On Death and Dying, exposed the heartless treatment of terminally ill patients that was the norm at the time.

In her book, Dr. Ross introduces us to the five-stages of grief:

Factitious Disorder

I chose Factitious Disorder because it sparked my writers mind.  I thought a character with this disorder would be challenging yet fun for a writer to create.

Factitious Disorders are conditions where a person acts as if he/she has a physical or mental illness when they do not have any illness at all.
