IWSG and Weekly News

Welcome to another posting of the Insecure Writer’s Support Group. If you haven’t yet checked out the site or any of the authors who participate, click the image above and go whisking away. Everyone loves a good virtual whisking.

The amazing co-hosts for this posting of the IWSG are Nicki ElsonJuneta KeyTamara Narayan, and Patricia Lynne!

The optional question this month: What are your ultimate writing goals, and how have they changed over time (if at all)?

My ultimate writing goals are to get my novels published. I currently have two completed ones, and I’ve started the third. The goal is actually bigger than it sounds when you hear that my second novel is the first in a series of five. I want to not only find homes for my completed novels, but also homes which will welcome me completing what I have started.

And yes, my goals have definitely changed over time. When I first started writing, I didn’t look past my first book. The goal at that time was to complete a single book. Now … I have no intention of stopping at three. 🙂

That’ll do it for this portion of my blog. Time for some news.

He’s smarter and far more hip than your average bear.

Dude! They’re growing Neanderthal brains in a lab. This is both incredibly cool and terrifying all at once. Next up, interfacing with robots. Seriously!

That’s all for me tonight, folks. 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. :)

    Hehe, yeah, I remember when I only intended to write one book. Addicting, isn’t it? Glad you’re rolling full steam ahead. 🙂

    A 5 book series is a great length.

    That’s so funny about Siri.

  3. I had every intention of stopping at one but that didn’t happen.
    Growing those mini brains is just plain creepy.
