Is it really the first Wednesday of the month again? Yes, yes it is, and you know what that means. It's time to convene another meeting of The Insecure Writer's Support Group. Our leader Alex J. Cavanaugh has rounded up another bunch of fantastic co-hosts: E.M.A. Timar, J.Q. Rose, C. Lee McKenzie, and Raimey Gallant.
Be sure to check out the IWSG website for great resources and support!
Before I go on, I'd like to ask for a favor if I might. I have a short story called "Becoming Death's Personal Assistant" appearing in the Normal Deviation anthology. This collection of stories were all inspired by the same strange image. It's truly amazing how such a wide variety of tales can come from the same photo. Anyway, the publisher is running a Kickstarter campaign to help cover costs. If any of you can help out by spreading the word, I'd really appreciate it. I've included a couple of pre-written tweets to make it easy for you. Thanks in advance for the help!

Now it's time for the question of the month.
It's spring! Does this season inspire you to write more than others, or not?
I'll say this much. Inspiration isn't lacking for me right now. Motivation to actually put words on the page has suffered some, but I might have an easier time powering through that if my kids weren't wanting to spend so much time at the park. I can hardly blame them. Now that the weather is actually feeling springlike, I'm enjoying being outside, too. It makes it a little harder to squeeze in my writing, but I've been doing the best I can.
What season most inspires you to write?
