Weekly News

Hello boys and girls! Another Wednesday has come, and nearly gone, and it’s yet another hot one in my neck of the woods. We have our hottest day this week tomorrow and then we have snow in the forecast Friday. Weird forecast for yet another weird 2022 week. All I can do is shake my head as I peruse headlines.

For your news sampling this week, if Houdini were a dog and a snuggler.

Hello all! It’s Wednesday once again. It’s a hot one over here. I’m thinking rain thoughts on an almost 90* day. Ugh. Until my thoughts manifest something useful, I’m distracting myself with the news.

This first story is the craziest “woman gives birth at …” story I‘ve seen.

The soil on the moon could someday help us in space exploration. Science is so cool!

IWSG and Weekly News

It is time once again for my Insecure Writer’s Support Group (IWSG) post. Our co-hosts this month are Kim Elliott, Melissa Maygrove, Chemist Ken, Lee Lowery, and Nancy Gideon!

May 4 question – It’s the best of times; it’s the worst of times. What are your writer highs (the good times)? And what are your writer lows (the crappy times)?

My writing highs overtake me when my writing flows. I love the feeling when all the pieces click into place, and the words become the most natural thing in the world. Those experiences will leave me excited, a smile glued to my face.

My writing lows come from opposite experience. Being stuck, not knowing what comes next, or pulling at the threads of my story and being completely unable to weave them together. It sucks, but I refuse to think about it now. I’m been deep in highs lately, so … I now transition to the news. 😉

My first story involves cake and a heart-warming gesture. Enjoy both!

I’m wrapping up early today. Enjoy, and I’ll see you in seven.

Happy Hump Day! I’m in a good mood—brain-fried, but in a good mood. I just finished the rewrites of my current book. I’m building my query and synopsis now, but I’m still riding high from finishing the heavy lifting. Share in my good mood by enjoying a couple of stories I found.

This first story is something. I just, um…read it.

In science news, progress in multiple sclerosis research. This could be really good.

IWSG and Weekly News

Welcome back to another posting for The Insecure Writer’s Support Group (IWSG). If you haven’t checked out our loose band of twitching neurotics, click the image above and be whisked away. It’s quite the ride. This month’s co-hosts me co-hosts for the April 6 posting of the IWSG are Joylene Nowell Butler, Jemima Pett, Patricia Josephine, Louise – Fundy Blue, and me! Check them out!

Instead of the monthly question about audiobooks, which I have no experience with on the writing side, I’ve decided to share our illustrious leader’s release information. His newest book is out and worth a read if you enjoy space opera. Take a look!

Last, but never, ever least, the weekly news. The first story is a great example of irony. Sorry, Mike.

The next story just makes me smile. Potty training cows seems like a weird job, but science is full of weird. I heart it so much!

I leave you with a perfect song to split the week in half. Enjoy and I’ll see you in seven.

Weekly News

Welcome back to the last Wednesday of March 2022. April is on the horizon, especially April 1st. Be careful out there on Friday. None of us needs that foolishness right now. Weird news, on the other hand, is just the right balance of fun and sanity. 😉

This first story has the most badass flamingo on the planet. Run, Pinkie, run!

In science news this week, visuals of little bacteria “syringes” that may redefine antibiotic usage. Science is so cool!

Book Release

Welcome to my extra post for this week to celebrate Alex Cavanaugh’s upcoming book release. He is the founder of The Insecure Writer’s Support Group (IWSG), and his latest book CassaDark drops this week. Check it out!

CassaDark

By Alex J. Cavanaugh

“Cavanaugh returns to the world of his Cassa Series…for a fourth inventive space opera.” – Publisher’s Weekly

His world is unraveling…

Bassan’s father is stepping down from command. His best friend almost dies when Bassan freezes. Now, he’s being sent across the galaxy to speak at an important conference. Despite saving the eleven races years ago, he’s paralyzed by doubt. Could things get any worse?

Once there, new acquaintance Zendar convinces Bassan to visit his planet for a humanitarian mission. Bassan’s special connection to ancient technology is the key to saving Zendar’s people. One problem though—it’s a prisoner planet.

On Ugar, he discovers things aren’t so straightforward. As each truth reveals itself, the situation grows more desperate. If he can’t find the right answers, he might die along with Zendar’s people. Can Bassan summon the courage to be a hero again?
