IWSG and Weekly News

img_0276

It is time once again for my monthly posting for the Insecure Writer’s Support Group (IWSG). We post the first Wednesday of the month to create a collective web of nervousness and insecurity which smothers the web. Fun, right? If you are compelled by twittering fun, click the image above. It’s what all the really cool basket cases are doing. 😉

The amazing co-hosts this month are Susan Baury Rouchard, Nancy Gideon, Jennifer Lane, Jennifer Hawes, Chemist Ken, and Chrys Fey!

And the optional question is–Have you ever written a piece that became a form, or even a genre, you hadn’t planned on writing in? Or do you choose a form/genre in advance?

I had to think on this one for a minute. Truth is, the idea usually makes quite clear the genre to me. Since the idea is what leads me to the keyboard, I know the genre once I sit down. But, when I really thought back to “ever,” I had to admit that my works-in-progress will sometimes grab a little genre seasoning I had not planned on. And once I looked at it that way, then I had to admit all of my work has been affected. In fact, during first draft of my current WIP I ended up deciding on suspense elements I had not planned on.

Great question! Now, time for some news.

Regardless of politics, this first story is cool. She swore in at the 35-mile mark of her 100-mile ultramarathon. Badass!

In science news, rapid 3D imaging from echoes of light. I will not even pretend to fully understand the ramifications of using AI in helping to recreate images, but it sounds amazing. It also sounds like the backstory for a Terminator-type movie, so there’s that. You gotta love science.

I will leave you with a song. 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. 3D images – now that’s neat.

    A little genre seasoning is always good.
