Hello fellow bloggers and writers. It is the first Wednesday of the month and that means it’s time for the Insecure Writers Support Group – #IWSG.

Ninja Captain Alex J. Cavanaugh , my hero, adopted brother, and one of my mentors, founded this amazing and wonderful group.

Its purpose is for writers of any kind to share their doubts, trials and tribulations without fear of being mocked or feeling foolish. It’s also a place where writers who have “been there” can offer wisdom and guidance.

Whenever anyone finishes a draft, edits their work, finds the perfect critique group, publishes their work, or has any other good news to share, this is the place to do it too!

The awesome co-hosts for the May 6 posting of the IWSG will be me at my alter ego site: Eva Solar at lilicasplace, with Melanie Schulz, Lisa-Buie Collard, and Stephen Tremp!

Make sure you pay a visit and thank them for all their hard work!

I neglected this blog a bit last month and I apologize sincerely for that. I was in up to my knees trying to keep up with the A-Z Challenge last month at my other blog, but at least I finished it. 😀

Now I need to spend more time with this blog, since it’s been my baby for a while now. Keeping up with it has been difficult to do even before last month because of issues with my health, Medicare, meds, and other non-writing related stuff.

Sometimes I’d rather live in the made up worlds I create in my head (the good ones, anyway). I know that’s not good for me, nor is it healthy. I’m working on it though, believe that.

Now that the April challenges are over, I’ll make time for the phone calls, arguments, and straightening out the red tape with Medicare. If I have to, I’ll get the doctors involved.

Don’t you wish you could run away sometimes?

Until next month…






About My Miracle Life

I'm a writer, blogger, avid reader, book reviewer, sub-arachnoid hemorrhage and stroke survivor, moving forward in my recovery and trying to advocate for stroke and brain hemorrhage awareness and prevention. I'm also slowly working towards independence, driving, my first novel, a memoir and a series of short stories. I've been lucky to have a very small network of close friends to guide me; I've been even luckier to have found an online 'family' of sorts to help me through the rough times.

  1. More days than not I wish I could run away. I picture a cabin in the woods of Maine. Completely isolated.


    • Nice. I’m pretty isolated right now since I can’t drive yet, but a cabin in the woods of Maine sounds like a nice getaway for a while. Count me in! Have a great night. Eva


  2. I don’t blame you for wanting to run away from that mess.

    Glad April is gone and now you have a new month. I hope it brings you lots of great things and all your problems are resolved the way you want. I know you’ll persevere until they do.


  4. I would love to run away, but all the worlds in my head are pretty dreary and depressing…


  5. M.R.R. says:

    The worlds in my head can get dark and weird, but at least I have control over them. It’s probably why I spend so much time in them.


  6. I had to deal with some medical stuff during April, too. It’s nice to have things a little calmer, now to just get motivated to deal with things..
    Good luck!

    I think everyone got behind in April. I know I did and I wasn’t even doing the A-Z! I hope both of us keep up better this month, and I hope your health/Medicare problems go away or at least stop bothering you so much. Have a great weekend! 🙂


  8. It’s not good to slip away to make believe and live there? Uh oh. I may be in trouble. 🙂

    When life is really hard, I love writing the most. It’s a great escape and costs much less than alcohol.

    You did such a great job with the A-Z! Hugs and love to you, Eva!
