IWSG and Weekly News

InsecureWritersSupportGroup2

It is the first Wednesday once again. Time for my posting for the Insecure Writer’s Support Group (IWSG).  The fantastic co-hosts for the December 5 posting are: J.H. Moncrieff, Tonja Drecker , Patsy Collins, and Chrys Fey. Thank you!

The optional question for this month is: What are five objects we’d find in your writing space?

I love this question! I have a cool writing space. Come closer, let me prove it.

First up is the sentimental portion of our journey. The collection of family memorabilia handed down to me from my grandmother and great aunt. I have a portrait of my great-great grandmother, her wedding shoes, marriage certificate, a portion of her dress, her desk, and her diploma from high school. Additionally, I have a cool tapestry hanging on the wall my husband brought back from Iran. To feed my ego and keep the writing insecurities at bay, I have displayed all of my certificates from writing contests where I won or placed for my first novel. For my reader and writer heart, piles and piles of books. My closet even has two book shelves with books. I am that person. And last, but most certainly not least, I have my Harry Potter wand from Universal. Total dork here–I admit it happily.

Writing spaces are important, and I have made mine represent me as fully as can be accomplished.

Time for some news.

This first story has a dog with some real skills. I see a bright future if the league can cough up the bones his agent will request. *Giggle*

This museum would be a trip. I must admit to having had at least one of their “disgusting” entrees, though. I had guinea pig when I visited Peru. It tastes like chicken. Really.

In science this week, gravitational waves. It turns out Einstein’s Theory of Relativity was correct in that gravity does not leak while passing through space. No leakage and possible mass. Mind blown! Einstein still rocks years after his death.

That’s all for 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. :)

    Someone needs to sign that dog – he’s a great goalie.

    I saw so many people, kids and adults, running around with those wands at Universal when I was there a few years ago.

  2. Go ahead and geek out with your Harry Potter wand!
    I’d seen how they make that fermented shark dish. I can’t believe people don’t get sick from eating rotten fish.
