Springing into Writing? #IWSG

The Insecure Writer's Support Group was founded by Alex J. Cavanaugh. May's co-hosts are JQ Rose, C. Lee McKenzie, Raimey Gallant, and E.M.A. Timar. Please visit the other participants.
OPTIONAL IWSG Day Question: It's spring! Does this season inspire you to write more than others or not? In the past, I have found a spurt of energy once the weather starts getting warmer. Usually in April and/or May, I'll write and/or edit more than usual. This April found myself with low energy still, but I'm hoping to make progress in my May goal. *crosses fingers*

What are your insecurities this month?

As mentioned above, I had a low energy month in April. I did a tiny bit of formatting for Elements of Untethered Realms (Forthcoming October 2018), but I did not work on my story for Untethered Worlds, except for thinking about the story and potential scenes. What words I did add (a little over 2500) involved a document I plan to print out and take when I find a doctor to help with some mental health issues I've been having.

My goal this month is to continue working on Elements of Untethered Realms. I am in the print formatting stage. After that, we'll need to create the book description and settle on cover art. Once everything looks good digitally, I'll order a print proof for one last proofread. I figure this goal will take the next few months.

What are your goals for May?
