Happy Thanksgiving Eve! For all of you in the US, tonight is the last night to turn your scale back five pounds. For those of you outside the US, just enjoy the joke I stole from the internet. And in case the idea of eating until you’re beyond stuffed doesn’t appeal, some news and a song.

My first story is proof that people will use absolutely any excuse to get together in a bar. So weird.

Happy Wednesday! November is barreling forward. It will be Thanksgiving before we know it. A little turkey, stuffing, and pie for having to endure the speed of time. Is it just me who sees it that way? Anyway, time for some news.

Um…stop, just stop.

IWSG and Weekly News

Welcome back to another posting for the Insecure Writer’s Support Group (IWSG). The first Wednesday of every month participating writers hop between each others blogs to commiserate with all of the ups and downs of this crazy authorial journey. If you’re curious, check out the blogs of our illustrious co-hosts: Diedre Knight, Douglas Thomas Greening, Nick Wilford, and Diane Burton!  

The optional question this month is November is National Novel Writing Month. Have you ever participated? If not, why not?

No, I haven’t participated in NaNo. The primary reason is because I always seem to be mid-project whenever it rolls around. Fast drafting, at least for me, works best when I’m at the beginning. Being halfway through means I am often somewhere in the editing process, and that is not a place where over 1600 words per day is likely. So, no NaNo. But I can share fun news for those of you who are participating.

My first news morsel today is a link about a cat con which features Nicolas Cage. Did you all know he was an internet famous cat dad?

It turns out sex may have been a far more powerful tool than violence in wiping out the Neanderthals. I heart science.

Welcome to the final Wednesday of October 2022. Fast does not begin to describe the speed with which October has come and mostly gone. Halloween is Monday, y’all. I am shocked. The only way to get over my age-related time experience is some distracting news, I guess. 🙂

Care for a bite?

Weekly News and IWSG

Welcome to another monthly post of the Insecure Writer’s Support Group (IWSG). It’s the time of the month when twittering keyboard monkeys hop between blogs to commiserate with other twittering keyboard monkeys. Join in the fun by clicking on the image above.

Our awesome co-hosts for the October 5th posting are:  Tonja Drecker, Victoria Marie Lees, Mary Aalgaard, and Sandra Cox!

Optional questionWhat do you consider the best characteristics of your favorite genre?

Well, one of my favorite genres is fantasy. The reason why is first and foremost because of the adventure, but my love of the genre also derives from the presence of magic, the range of creatures (especially dragons!), the incredible world-building, and badass, sword-wielding heroines. I could go on and on, but it’s time for some news.

The first story up tonight is another example of one animal adopting another, and I’m a sucker for these stories.
