IWSG March Has Arrived!

And with March comes so much for writers, INSECURE  and otherwise. 

Brain Child of Alex J. Cavanaugh



The awesome co-hosts for the March 2 posting of the IWSG are 
Lauren Hennessy, Lisa Buie-Collard, Lidy, Christine Rains, and Mary Aalgaard! 


Since Tara Tyler and Christine Rains invited me to be a part of the MEME HOP, I've become besotted by memes. Here's my IWSG short story told in memes.

  6. I'm feeling like a "yesterday" this month. Too much to do and so little willpower. Maybe some chocolate would help.

  15. ACK! April! I'm barely able to believe it is March!

  16. I'm being tempted by all these wonderful blog happenings, but I promised myself I'd cut back and take a break. It's the first I've decided to forgo the A to Z challenge. And I have a full plate of writing that needs to get done and edited.

    I love all of Norman Rockwell's paintings, and that's a good one!!!

  17. A busy time ahead, I hope I can get my shots done earlier in my shoulders,

  18. Thanks, Lee, for your comment (almost) right now on my post The Walking Wounded. And for telling me feedburner isn't working for email following. If I only understood this stuff! You and Hillary Melton-Butcher have both mentioned feedly, so I'm checking that out. I need a LOT of FYIs for wordpress (I think I've got to take some kind of course)... Thanks!

    Love your memes. They made me smile...and I needed to smile. And now I'm going to see if I can signup.... (it's really a trial/challenge trying to connect Wordpress to Blogspot who don't seem to like each othter).

  19. I love the idea of telling a post using memes!! :-) And I love the opening page of your website with the links on the book spines, very cool. :-)

  20. Oh yeah... I write action stories all right! HA! But I'm sure I still look as frazzled as her.

    ReplyDelete
  21. Oh, my heck. I love that one about writing action stories. *stealing*

    ReplyDelete
  22. LOL, love the meme's so true and so funny. Good job. Still grinning.

  24. Funny meme. Great job. Now, I will subscribe to your newsletter.

  25. That yesterday picture was me yesterday. But I dug in and got most of the emails answered today so I can actually write. A to Z posts are next week.

    ReplyDelete
  26. I'm envious of your bravery with your newsletter. I listened to all the marketing advice about how you have to have a newsletter these days, I set one up, got a few sign-ups, then completely chickened out. Cluck-cluck-cluck! *flaps wings* I signed up for yours. Maybe I'll get braver some day...

    ReplyDelete
  27. Ha, ha, love the image of the girl who writes action stories. Happy IWSG Day!

    ReplyDelete
  28. Excellent meme with the "I write action" - :)
    Way to go with your newsletter!

    ReplyDelete
  29. I can relate far too well to that "yesterday" pic... XD

    ReplyDelete
  30. The yesterday meme is my today. Whew!

    ReplyDelete
  31. Yesterday is today... seems it's today for a few of us ;)

    ReplyDelete
  32. That Rockwell painting is kind of funny with the face of that girl. I can't believe how quickly the A to Z is almost here

  33. Hey superstar celebrity type author, Lee!

    Yeah, yeah, I know, where the heck has your starstuckest fan, aka, Gary, been? Well, you know, I've been busy with Penny's pawblicity campaign that will take over the blogging world on, perhaps appropriately, April Fool's Day.

    Anyway, way too much about shy, humble me!

    Oops an yikes, a mention of yet another hop. Let's have a "Make Them Stop Having Blog Hops" blog hop.

    Awesome about your newsletter! Interesting memes, whatever a "memes" is. Then again, to tie it in so nicely with the IWSG aka, "I Was Seeking Gary", is super duper!

    Today is only yesterday's tomorrow....

    Your starstruckest fan,

    Gary

  35. That Yesterday meme has been my past six weeks, although I'm pretty sure there was a bottle of wine behind the balled up papers *wink*

    ReplyDelete
  36. Lots going on. Not sure about the a-z, although I did sign up. Your Meme story really hit home!

    ReplyDelete
  37. Hi Lee - action writing! So good to see. There are lots of events happening ... I'm waiting for the A-Z ... but I enjoy all the other hopping entries .. cheers Hilary

    ReplyDelete
  38. I love the second meme. The first one reminds me of certain days I've had.

    ReplyDelete
  39. I'm getting excited for the A to Z challenge. I need to prepare some posts in March, though, or I'll feel overwhelmed. Thanks for stopping by my blog. Mary at Play off the Page

  40. This has been a tough year so far. Hope it gets better for everyone, me included.

    I can't believe it's almost April! I'd planned to write a bunch of A to Z posts in advance since I won't be in town for part of April. Have I started? No, of course not.

    ReplyDelete
  41. I have been in that "yesterday" pose before. :)

  42. OMG, almost A to Z time? I have a huge book launch looming, so I may have to just cheer A to Z from the sidelines.

    ReplyDelete
  43. Your post makes your life sound busy--at least I have a start on my first A-Z challenge!

    ReplyDelete
  44. I love Norman Rockwell paintings. They're not real life, obviously, but I'll never stop hoping. Take time to put your feet up, Lee.

    ReplyDelete
  45. I share your excitement over WRiTECLUB and the A to Z challenge. Rock on!

    ReplyDelete
  46. That actions story meme is too cute!!!

Please say something to me, anything. Well, not anything, but a kind word will do.
