InsecureWritersSupportGroup2

 

It is time once again for a posting of the Insecure Writer’s Support Group. We’re a fun group of nail-biting, coffee-swilling, chocolate -popping, basket cases. Quite the picture, huh? If you’re even a slight bit curious, click on the picture and surf the blogs. You won’t regret it.

Our phenomenal co-hosts for the November 7 posting are: Ellen @ The Cynical SailorAnn V. FriendJQ Rose and Elizabeth Seckman. Thank you all!

The optional question this month: How has your creativity in life evolved since you began writing?

Hmm … you would think that as a writer, and as a writer that has devoted greater and greater amounts of both brainpower and time to more novels, that I would also find creativity spilling out of my head like curlicues. But, alas, no such curlicues. I have zero drawing skills. I do enjoy photography, but my books suck up so much time that I haven’t taken much in the way of pictures in a while. Acting would freak out the introvert half of me.

So … writing gets all of my creativity. There are worse things, my friends.

Time for some news.

When I first read this story, my main focus was to ask why the lady didn’t just keep her dog in the house. But, the more I thought about a gold-digging dog who scammed burgers, the more I realized that she was really his hungry partner in crime. Don’t you think? 😉

I’ve posted the link to Reddit’s ‘Shower Thoughts’ forum before, but I couldn’t resist sharing another thread. Cheese is just a loaf of milk? I laughed way too hard at that one.

Last but not least, archaeologists have finally uncovered a device used in building the immense pyramids in Egypt. When they described the contraption, I could picture people thousands of years ago slowly inching the rock slabs up the slope. I really heart science!

That’s all 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. :)

    They will never know what really was used to build the pyramids. Nor will they be able to duplicate it.

  2. It’s hard to focus on more than one major creative thing at a time.
    Sneaky dog. Yes, he’ll get fat eating at McDonald’s.
