IWSG and Weekly News


(Sorry for the crappy formatting on the first half of this post. WordPress refuses to let me paragraph until I get halfway down the page. Argh…)
It’s the first Wednesday yet again. Time for another posting for The Insecure Writer’s Support Group (IWSG). Our fabulous co-hosts this month are: Jennifer Hawes,Jen Chandler,Nick Wilford,Juneta Key,JH Moncrieff,Diane Burton, and MJ Fifield!
And the question this month: In terms of your writing career, where do you see yourself five years from now, and what’s your plan to get there?
In five years I foresee myself sitting in front of my computer pumping our book number five with a shelf full of my first four and a wall full of recognition in the form of articles, interviews and New York Times listings.  No delusions of grandeur here.
The path I plan on taking is one I’ve already begun. I will write daily, revise, rewrite, revise some more, take in critique, read, revise some more, query, revise some more, etc …
Think it’ll work? I do. 🙂


Time for a tasty bit of December news.

How do these people have so much free time to a) actually search out random crap like this and b) attempt, record and share random, stupid crap like this?


This makes me happy. So many good people out there trying to make a difference in the world. I always get extra mushy close to Christmas.


In science news this week, something that blew my mind in terms of marrying the essence of humanity with space exploration. 3D printing laughter. Can you see it? Can you actually visualize what laughter looks like?


That’ll do it for me tonight. I’ll see you again in seven.

About kimlajevardi

I am a forty-something-year-old writer. I'm currently drafting my second book. I've also written short stories, poems, and some non-fiction over the last several years. My interest in writing formed during countless hours with my nose tucked in books. I may have even been clutching a novel as I was born. :)

    I think you definitely have the right plan to succeed. It’s all about learning and being adaptable. The ripping is so mean to the apples! Police giving away money?! I’m obviously living in the wrong place and must move to Wyoming! So let me get this straight – sculptor is using crowdfunding to produce a “laugh” sculpture and send it into space where no one can see it. Ever. Doesn’t seem like such good plan to me…

      I hope I have the right plan to succeed, but I absolutely agree that it’s the only way to learn and make lemonade out this whole writing compulsion. 😉

      Mean to the apples. 🙂

      We should all move to Wyoming. The housing there is so cheap, so there’s a double bonus. I know the laughter thing is strange, and yet … I’m curious.

      Have a great week, Lex!

  2. That’s a good sound plan. I’ve been reading a lot of these IWSG posts today, and most of them involve the caveat of working hard. If you write enough, something good will happen. Then you write some more, and the next thing will happen 🙂

    I love that idea about the Wyoming police using the money for donations… what a great idea.
