IWSG and Weekly News

Welcome back to another posting for The Insecure Writer’s Support Group (IWSG). If you haven’t checked out our loose band of twitching neurotics, click the image above and be whisked away. It’s quite the ride. This month’s co-hosts me co-hosts for the April 6 posting of the IWSG are Joylene Nowell Butler, Jemima Pett, Patricia Josephine, Louise – Fundy Blue, and me! Check them out!

Instead of the monthly question about audiobooks, which I have no experience with on the writing side, I’ve decided to share our illustrious leader’s release information. His newest book is out and worth a read if you enjoy space opera. Take a look!

Last, but never, ever least, the weekly news. The first story is a great example of irony. Sorry, Mike.


The next story just makes me smile. Potty training cows seems like a weird job, but science is full of weird. I heart it so much!

I leave you with a perfect song to split the week in half. Enjoy 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. The potty training cows headline made me laugh. As someone who grew up on a dairy farm, all I can say is good luck with that. But, hey, if they can do it, more power to them. Thanks for co-hosting IWSG!

  2. I had to chuckle when I saw the title – Potty Trained Cattle! 🙂

    Potty training cows? Now I’ve heard everything.

  4. Kate says:

    Anything to help with climate change, right? Even potty-training cows.

  5. cleemckenzie says:

    The potty-trained cows really stopped me. Really? The reason behind the experiment is sound, but I can’t imagine the training being done on a widespread scale. Guess we’ll find out.

    Thanks for co-hosting today.

  18. Arlee Bird says:

    Sure, let’s potty train cows and all other animals. If it can be done effectively then why not if it’s good for the environment.

    Go Alex!
