IWSG and Weekly News

It’s that time again–the monthly posting for The Insecure Writer’s Support Group (IWSG). Time to check in on the twitchy masses who spend far more time at keyboards than they should. We’re weird, wonderful, and wired. Don’t believe me? Click on a few of the blogs found linked to the image above. You will believe. You will definitely believe. 😉

Our wonderful co-hosts this month are Sadira Stone,Patricia Josephine, Lisa Buie-Collard, Erika Beebe, and C. Lee McKenzie!

The optional question this month is–What’s the strangest thing you’ve ever googled in researching a story? 

Hmm…the shape of the continents during parts of the tectonic shifts after Pangaea. I wanted a certain geological area in my fantasy world, so I looked at how the supercontinent looked/was positioned to enable more water outside the continent than between, mountains in a certain location, and large tracts of land with climatic zones that were true to the geology.

I’m a nerd. I know. Time for the some actual news.

This is a good university. PB&J rocks anyways, but when you’re a college student scraping by, it is a gift.

This guy either has a lot of nerve or a very sad story. I hope he just had a lot of nerve. I’d hate to think someone took advantage of him to the tune of a million dollars.

Last but never least, science. Voyager 2 has reached interstellar space. Go, Voyager, go!

That’s all for me tonight. See you back here in seven.

  1. Okay… am definitely off to check about the supercontinent

  2. I’ve done that too! Mostly on my way to ‘where were the continents 2 million years ago’. Pangaea is quite interesting.

  3. Peanut butter and jelly. I bet a lot of students took up that offer.

  4. But you’re a nerd in a good way.
    Nice of the college to do that.
    Amazing to see Voyager 2 go that far!
