IWSG and Weekly News

(Stupid WordPress hates my formatting again. Sorry for the way this is showing up.)
Time for another visit with insecure writers worldwide. If you have not yet checked out the image above, you’re missing out. Go flying on a magic jpeg ride and check out a myriad of weird but funny blogs.
Thanks to our wonderful co-hosts for the October 4 posting of the IWSG: Olga Godim, Chemist Ken,Jennifer Hawes, and Tamara Narayan!
Question for the month: Have you ever slipped any of your personal information into your characters, either by accident or on purpose?
Constantly, but not specifically. Let me ‘splain. My experiences, emotions, etc … help form the basis of the emotional landscape, but it is in pieces. When I need to flesh out a portion of a character, I start with the hows, whys, and what ifs that form my own life experiences and then build out. So, the answer is yes, but with so much more nuance than I’ve even described.
Up next, the news.
This next story had me in total agreement with the bakery until the cleaning part came up. There is no love if your equipment is dirty, dude. Clean that stuff up.
This next one is very sweet. Few people can claim a giraffe in their engagement story, so score a win for the guy.
This is a very sad but interesting look at the opioid crisis. Science once again looks both wide and narrow to solve problems rather than merely moaning about them.
That’s all for tonight. See you back here 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. :)

    The giraffe story is so sweet! I’d love to see a video of her reaction.

  2. Using a giraffe to propose – he scores big points for originality.
