Welcome back to another posting of The Insecure Writer’s Support Group (IWSG). Our fantastic co-hosts for April are:  Diane Burton, JH Moncrieff, Anna @ Emaginette, Karen @ Reprobate Typewriter, Erika Beebe, and Lisa Buie-Collard . Please take a moment to check out their blogs. 

Instead of a monthly question to answer, I’m going to introduce the judges for the 2020 IWSG anthology. (If you’re interested in submitting, click the IWSG image at the top of the post and sail away to the main page. Dates and further information can be found there. The genre this year is Science Fiction.)–

Now, time for some news.

It’s a goat takeover.

I love the postman in this next story. Some people shine no matter what life throws at them.

Last up on the menu tonight, some delicious science. It turns out our urine, or, at least, the urea component in it, makes one hell of an ingredient for building. Just add a little moon dust and viola. Science just freaking rocks!

That’s all for me tonight. Stay healthy, and I’ll 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. :)

  1. But the goats are so white and fluffy!

  2. Well, now we know who will take over when we are gone.
    Cool the guy dresses up but not too sure about the Bo Peep outfit…
    Stay safe!

    My work never gets selected for these anthologies. I’m too weird, and it shows. Then again, last year’s genre was middle-grade adventure, which is a genre I’ve never written before. I usually write for adults or ten-year-olds trapped in adult bodies.
    May you stay well.
