Surprise, surprise another Wednesday is upon us, and it’s the first Wednesday. You know what that means–Insecure Writer’s Support Support Group. But this is not your ordinary monthly post. No, it’s an anniversary posting. Four years. It’s been four years since the group began, and to celebrate there is a very special announcement.
IWSG is sponsoring an anthology contest that’s open to either Facebook members or blogging members. Previously unpublished stories of 5000-6000 words of Speculative Fiction are welcome. You have until November 1st, 2015. If you’re interested, click the image above and go flying to a link that outlines the rules, judges and piles of gold awaiting your brilliance.
Well, maybe not piles of gold.
And since I have no whining or complaining for you this week, I’ll leave this part of the post on that very wonderful announcement. Cue Vanna arm waves and a lot of bowing. You’re welcome. So very welcome. I didn’t really have anything to do with the anthology, but you’re still welcome. 😉
On to the news. I didn’t really have anything to do with it either, but I found the links. Does that count?
This first story is AWESOME! More than cute. More than the reality of parenthood. It’s the cute reality of parenthood.
This next story seems silly when you see the headline. I thought it would be, but it’s not. And the issues that tie back to something as important as sanitation, and in some societies, safety, make it worth watching.
We may be like a virus. Can you imagine life being figuratively contagious?
That’ll do it for the first week in September. When the Earth rotates seven more times, and the week tips away from the coming weekend and toward the following, I’ll be back. Ooh… total Terminator moment. See you in seven.
