IWSG and Weekly News


(Sorry for the formatting. WordPress resists paragraphing every once in a while.)
It’s time again for my monthly posting for the Insecure Writer’s Support Group. The virtual group uber-focused on the anxiety-riddled life of writers. We’re a mess. Come see.
Our fantastic co-hosts this month are Raimey Gallant, Natalie Aguirre, CV Grehan, and Michelle Wallace!
I’m skipping the optional question this month and again focusing on my own writing journey. In January, I mentioned I had finished my current WIP and was beginning the beta process. Well, I have most of my feedback back and am now launching into some pretty significant revisions. Good revisions, like “make this sucker jump out of the slushpile” good. Armed with great feedback and another read through, I have an editing plan. Tomorrow is day one of a probable month-long hard-core revision, and then …the slushpile. I’m feeling way too confident for this stage of the game. It’s weird.
Time for some news.
I wish I could have been at the meeting where someone proposed a naked troll who farts glitter at tourists. Fun for all ages had to have been uttered at some point. 🙂
This next story is gross, just gross. That is too much mac and cheese. No one needs that much mac and cheese. Yuck!
Last but not never least, a volcano. When Kilauea erupted last summer it was devastating and newsworthy, but it also provided scientists with a treasure trove of understanding. Besides, I struggle to pass up volcano-related stories. I heart volcanoes as much as I heart science!



That’s all for tonight, folks. See you 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. :)

  3. You want it to jump out of the slushpile!

    That amount of mac and cheese is gross.

  4. CV Grehan says:

    I love your confidence! Good luck with the editing. Hunker down.
    (I am the one who would buy the mac and cheese.)

  5. Enjoy the confidence! You know it won’t last forever.
    Sparkle farting troll. Yeah, who thought that one up?
    No food should be good twenty years later. That is disgusting.

  6. Oh, my word! Someone really neglected to think that whole naked, farting, troll idea. I’d hate to be the guy in the costume. How do you even activate that? Have another great month. You’re doing awesome!
