IWSG and Weekly News


Welcome back to the monthly meeting of twitchy writers. Wait! I think the image above may have it right. Welcome to another gathering of insecure writers ;). We are a motley mixture of people reaching through keyboards toward the collective–no, not that collective. There are no Borg representatives in our group. Although  … I haven’t visited every blog. Let me know if you find them.

The fantastic and definitely non-Borg co-hosts for this posting of IWSG are Mary Aalgaard, Bish Denham, Jennifer Hawes, Diane Burton, and Gwen Gardner!

Time for me to stop playing and get serious. There’s a question to answer. *Giggle*

Okay, okay. Here goes. How do you celebrate when you achieve a writing goal/finish a story?

Hmm. Celebrate is a strong word. I write novels. So, finishing means pulling my head out of my editing-induced fog to remember that I’m a member of the human race and that I may need to clean my house, tend to the wobbling stack of to-do tasks, and actually take in sensory data from the world. Does that count as a celebration? I suppose it is if you consider housekeeping a celebration. But, truthfully, it’s what I do. I take a few weeks to actually attend the enormous stack of things that I ignored during final edits and add in a dash of TV binges. Send in the balloons. 😉


Time for some news.

This first story was handled with good humor and poise by both anchors. I may have been a little more shrill myself. Can you imagine having a bird land on your head during a TV broadcast?


These people take their KFC very seriously. The joking about it was worth a belly laugh. Here’s an LOL for the grocery-store prank. Nice.


And in science news this week, nerds rule. I want a floating brain. Please. I’ll clean my room and do all the laundry. Please.


That’s all for me this week. 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. :)

    I’m with you on the chores. If I don’t get everyone started and work along with them, NOTHING gets done. Thanks for sharing, Kim.

    I wish I didn’t have to celebrate by cleaning the house.

    i love how composed that anchor remained with a bird on her head!

  4. Nothing wrong with television binging.
    And it’s been a while since I was able to visit every single blog…

    Celebrating by doing chores isn’t celebrating. LOL I know it’s what we do. We feel guilty because Hubs had to dig his underwear out of the clothes basket. Hey, at least they’re clean. We need to be nicer to ourselves.
