IWSG and Weekly News

Welcome back for another monthly posting of The Insecure Writer’s Support Group (IWSG). We’re a group of neurotic keyboard junkies who meet once a month via our keyboards. 😉 This month’s virtual connect is supported by our fantastic co-hosts: SE White, Cathrina Constantine, Natalie Aguire, Joylene Nowell Butler, and Jacqui Murray. Take a second and visit their blogs.

June 1st question – When the going gets tough writing the story, how do you keep yourself writing to the end? If have not started the writing yet, why do you think that is and what do you think could help you find your groove and start?

When the going gets tough, I throw every strategy at the virtual wall until something sticks. I’ll take a break before restarting, butt in chair every day at the same time, read some books in my genre, and/or other crazy ideas that present themselves as answers. I will do every possible thing to shake the words loose because once an idea is stuck in my head, I can’t stop. Writing is so weird.

In the world of news this week, I do not want to be a dolphin. Like ever. https://www.huffpost.com/entry/dolphins-recognize-each-other-urine_n_628bc86be4b0415d4d7adccd

My science news this week is a picture of a black hole. I heart science!

I 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. :)
