Welcome back, I know I’ve been very quiet this month. I was a bit snowed under with James struggling to get good sleep and the lack of it really wearing him down, and then my drive to pass my PMP on the 26th. Well, it is official, I now have my PMP!
It is a massive weight off my shoulders to finally have achieved that goal. And, after far too many trips to emergency rooms and hospitals, we’ve finally got James on a medication that will help him sleep so he is not so erratic. Still no answer to what is causing the ringing in his ears but we are not giving up. The next month my primary focus is on job searching for project management work as James will go down to long-term disability pay the end of this month and that is definitely not enough to sustain us.
As time allows, I will continue working on re-releasing my courses and my books but I have been a bit daunted by the lack of sign-ups for the last two challenges and the limited sales despite promoting and advertising my books. But as money is a top priority, finding a new job is the top focus so it will give me time to weigh my feelings on investing time and energy into re-releasing. Now, on to the IWSG question of the month!
Posting: The first Wednesday of every month is officially Insecure Writer’s Support Group day. Post your thoughts on your own blog. Talk about your doubts and the fears you have conquered. Discuss your struggles and triumphs. Offer a word of encouragement for others who are struggling. Visit others in the group and connect with your fellow writer – aim for a dozen new people each time – and return comments. This group is all about connecting!

The awesome co-hosts for the April 5 posting of the IWSG are Jemima Pett, Nancy Gideon, and Natalie Aguirre!
Every month, we announce a question that members can answer in their IWSG post. These questions may prompt you to share advice, insight, a personal experience or story. Include your answer to the question in your IWSG post or let it inspire your post if you are struggling with something to say.
Remember, the question is optional!
April 5 question – Do you remember writing your first book? What were your thoughts about a career path on writing? Where are you now and how is it working out for you? If you’re at the start of the journey, what are your goals?
