IWSG and Weekly News

Welcome to another monthly posting for The Insecure Writer’s Support Group (IWSG). The first Wednesday of the month is the time where twittering writers from around the globe take a few moments to reach beyond our stories to commiserate with other twittering keyboard monkeys. The amazing co-hosts for the December 7 posting of the IWSG are Joylene Nowell Butler, Chemist Ken, Natalie Aguirre, Nancy Gideon, and Cathrina Constantine!

The optional question this month is–are the holidays a time to catch up or fall behind on writing goals?

In all honesty, fall behind. I work in an industry that gets busy during December, and as a result, I have less bandwidth than normal. I can’t wait until January. Definitely means I need to be efficient with my time. To that end, time for some news. 🙂

This first story talks about the word of the year and a condition I’d like to engage in for at least a week.

In science this week, gifts from the James Webb Space telescope. Happy Holidays!

I leave you with a song. 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. If your work is really busy and you’ve got the holidays too, it makes sense that you don’t have much time for writing now. Happy Holidays!

  2. I’m embarrassed to admit I’m sweating buckets. If only I could shed fat cells at the same time. But I do know cold! And in my next life I want to go to space. Have a lovely Christmas, Kim, and an exciting new year.

    I don’t think goblin mode is a good thing though.

  4. The cosmos photo is amazing.
    Goblin mode – never heard the phrase before!

  5. Goblin mode ? Great.
    This morning, out walking, I met all the happy people, dressed like a Breughel winter scene, sharing that other ‘love that dare not speak its name’.
    Cold ! A white frost. icy mountains, well, fells. Currently only – 6C
    Pyjamas though ? Asking for hypothermia ? Add several layers and my favourite scarlet and pink Scandi slipper socks, and wonder how Shakespeare dressed to write when icicles hung by the door.
