My main insecurity right now is getting everything ready for my blog tour, which starts in - gulp - five days! I've been rather behind, but I'm getting there. One more guest post to write!
So what is this month's IWSG question? It's "Besides writing what other creative outlets do you have?"
Well, I've been focusing on writing for the longest time because when I get time to be creative that's my priority. When I was younger, though, I tried drawing, acting, and even songwriting (with pretty terrible results). Don't know if I'll ever get back to those, but you never know! I've definitely got ambitions to write something in the dramatic field, maybe for stage or screen.
So without further ado let's see what's happening with the IWSG right now.
The next IWSG anthology, Masquerade: Oddly Suited, (YA romance) will be released on April 30, 2019.
The authors are looking for blog tour hosts. If you can host a day and help spread the word about the anthology, sign up through Google Docs.
You can also pre-order either print or eBook: Barnes & Noble / Amazon / Dancing Lemur Press LLC
Print ISBN 9781939844644 $14.95
EBook ISBN 9781939844651 $4.99
Plus show your support and add Masquerade on Goodreads.

This month’s WEP Challenge is 28 Days.
This prompt came up as a contest winner generated by the IWSG gang – we chose the winner from a whole bunch of creative ideas! Congratulations to long-time WEP participant, Toinette Thomas.
Incorporate 28 days in your entry. It can be the time limit for a task or a challenge. The quantum of growth, a journey, a change, and/or healing that happens in 28 days. Come in with a werewolf entry. Or don’t. Tell us about some other moon phase-based folklore instead. Fashion an epistolary flash as a series of 28 diary entries or postcards. Mainstream, fantasy, romance, travel – all wide open. A lot of things can happen in 28 days!
Sign up and post your entry on February 20.

The IWSG Goodreads Book Club is changing things up!
5 Discussion Questions: We will pose 5 questions that you can answer about the book we’ve read as a group. You can answer one question or all five. It’s up to you.
Discussion Day Poll: Every discussion day, there will also be a poll that all members will get invited to answer. This is a great option to participate that is fast and simple.
Quiz: You can also help us create a Goodreads quiz for the book we’ve read.
Giveaways: Every Discussion Day, book club members will get a Goodreads message that will include the chance for members to enter a free Rafflecopter giveaway.
Freebies: When we announce the next reading selection, another Goodreads message will go out that’ll include a downloadable freebie, which could be anything.
Other Polls: We will also invite members to answer writing or reading related polls during our “down” months. One poll will be related to the book in some way.
We read a new book every other month, alternating between craft books and fictional books that demonstrate an aspect of writing. Members vote on our fictional books.
