It's April the first, which means that as well as it being Insecure Writer's Support Group day, it's also April Fool's.
In England, and some other countries, this is traditionally a time for spoofs and practical jokes. It's common to see photos of invisible stealth planes and ships which are really photos of nothing, or silly news stories by people with names made from the letters of April fool(s). This isn't a good day to trust anyone called Olaf or Flo!
One very important part is to get your fooling in, and reveal you've done so, by noon. If you wait until after twelve it's you, not your victim, who is the fool.
Although tempted to make up a spurious word for Wednesday Word of the Week today, I've resisted. Instead I'm sharing some fun pictures. Have you ever played an amusing April Fool's prank? Or been on the recieving end of a funny one?
You don't need to have been fooled in order to benefit from joining the Insecure Writer's Support Group, although I'm sure you'd find advice and sympathy if that were the case.
Members will help you through anything from constant self doubt about your writing abilities to momentary anxiety or where to place a comma.
