IWSG and Weekly News

InsecureWritersSupportGroup2

It’s time yet again for the monthly posting of the Insecure Writer’s Support Group (IWSG). The once a month twittering sharing of nervous writers whose words surf the connections of the web in search of commiseration. If you haven’t clicked on the image above and surfed their blogs, do. You will be entertained.

Thank you to our fantastic co-hosts today Tonja Drecker, Beverly Stowe McClure, Nicki Elson, Fundy Blue, and Tyrean Martinson!

The optional question this month is: Let’s play a game. Imagine. Role-play. How would you describe your future writer self, your life and what it looks and feels like if you were living the dream? Or if you are already there, what does it look and feel like? Tell the rest of us. What would you change or improve?

My future writer self is a best-selling author with a completed fantasy series and several stand alones in print. If the experiences of several successful authors I’ve heard talk about the subject match my own, writing at that point will continue to feel like I alternately do not know what I’m doing and I’m a genius. Roller coaster rides I will survive with mouthfuls of chocolate and binge-worthy shows as I weep uncontrollably. So, you know, something to look forward to. 🙂

Time for some news.

Peloton is lapping up the near-constant coverage of their ad, even if it half of it’s negative.

Last but not least, science. Trees that drip nectar through the night to attract pollinator bats made me envision vivid fantasy worlds like in Avatar. Science for the win.

That’s all for tonight. 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. :)

    I love how writers think–an entire world with its plot is born from a simple idea or thought. I love it!

  2. Not knowing what I’m doing and a genius – I love it!
