IWSG and Weekly News

InsecureWritersSupportGroup2

It is time again for the monthly posting of the Insecure Writer’s Support Group. If you haven’t already clicked on the image above and investigated the variety of writers who participate, what are you waiting for?

This month’s fantastic co-hosts are J.H. MoncrieffNatalie AguirrePatsy Collins and Chemist Ken!

I’m skipping the optional question to plug the anthology:

Our genre is Middle grade historical: adventure/fantasy and the opening date is May 1. The best brains are on the theme, and that will be announced on the opening date. So this is just to whet your appetite – you could use that time to brush up your knowledge of the genre if it’s not your usual bag, for example. We’re looking forward to more great entries!

Don’t forget the Masquerade anthology is hitting the shelves on April 30!

Time for the news.

I’m at a loss on this next story. I just …. Read it and you’ll understand.

The rise of social media means we get a peek into the lives of people from our neighbors to action stars. It can sometimes be a very odd peek.

And in science news, neurogenesis happens way beyond adolescence. The idea that our brains could continue to make new brain cells is encouraging, and it can be an important avenue for research. I heart science!

That’s all for tonight. I’ll 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 heard about the brain cells a while back. Someone suggested it takes thirty years to grow new cells. It gives our family hope because one of us had a brain injury (over 15 years ago) that has left them struggling. She is recovering from the damage but it’s been slow, slow going.

    You’re right, at a loss for words…
