IWSG and Weekly News

InsecureWritersSupportGroup2

It’s the first Wednesday of the month, which means it is Insecure Writer’s Support Group time. If you want to join or hop between the amazing participating blogs, click the image above and/or the co-hosts blogs linked below.

 

Our amazing co-hosts today are Lee Lowery, Ronel Janse van Vuuren, Jennifer Hawes, Cathrina Constantine, and Tyrean Martinson!

The optional question this month is: Has a single photo or work of art ever inspired a story? What was it and did you finish it?
Absolutely. When I began writing, I used to participate in small writing contests. One of the ones I loved was based on picture prompts. Not only did numerous shorts and a few poems get birthed from that process, but one of those shorts actually grew to become my second book. Wow, right? It gets better. Dragon Embers–my book baby born from the short story prompt–is the first book in a, hopefully, five book YA fantasy series. I finished the first book, and I will write more once I sell it. Suffice it to say I love picture prompts.

Now, time for some news.

We’re using vomit for predictions now?

Who wants to wager the officer(s) were giggling as they pulled the wienermobile over. I would have been unable to speak.

In the tradition of saving the best for last, science. Apparently, human behavior can at once be alive, like Schrödinger’s cat, and also dead. How? Quantum cognition. I heart science!

That’s all for me tonight. 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. :)

  1. I think they better stick to that octopus for predictions. He’s more accurate.

    I’m always interested in a good fantasy.

  2. You don’t see a Weinermobile in trouble with the law often!
    Dragon Embers – I really like the title.
