NOVEMBER IWSG





The Insecure Writer’s Support Group
 
Purpose: To share and encourage. Writers can express doubts and concerns without fear of appearing foolish or weak. Those who have been through the fire can offer assistance and guidance. It’s a safe haven for insecure writers of all kinds!

Let’s rock the neurotic writing world!

Our Twitter is @TheIWSG and hashtag #IWSG.


Ninja Alex J. Cavanaugh is the founder of IWSG


 His awesome co-hosts for the November 6 posting of the IWSG are Sadira Stone, Patrici



Every month, we announce a question that members can answer in their IWSG Day post. These questions may prompt you to share advice, insight, a personal experience or story. Include your answer to the question in your IWSG post or let it inspire your post if you are struggling with something to say. Remember, the question is optional!!!


November 6 question is  What's the strangest thing you've ever googled in researching a story?


Mm, interesting question.

I've searched my brain. Nothing's there. Can't think of a thing. So, I have no answer today.

Happy reading and writing to all.

    1. Yeah! I know, Diane. I later thought of some things, but too late to post.

  2. I had a hard time answering this month's question too. I bet there will be some interesting responses though!

  3. I research things for fantasy stories, but nothing really weird. Have a great week!

    1. Research is fun, Natalie, but like you I don't write anything really weird. I don't think? A great week to you, also.

    1. Define "empty," Alex. Just joking. At times, yes. Other times, my brain runneth over with ideas. The fate of a writer.

    1. Ha! Ha! Chrys. That's me. Always a day late and a dollar short as the old saying goes. I did think of some things later. Like researching dyslexia which is quite interesting. Oh, well. There's always next time.

  6. I went through the same thing--I got nothing--but did realize that much of what I think is mundane is interesting to others. So, I ended up with "What's the Hudson River smell like?" I mean, how do you know that if you aren't there sniffing?

    1. I came to that same conclusion, Jacqui, and thought of things I could have mentioned, like researching dyslexia and bullies. Next time, I'll be better prepared. And, now I'm curious about the Hudson River. Something to research. Thanks for stopping by.

    1. They'll come to you later, Patricia. They did to me. I'm just slow, I guess. It's fun reading about them. Thanks for stopping by.

  9. Depends upon what you write, I suppose. Writing historical fiction involves me in lots of weird things, and the question did ask for strange things! 🤗

    1. I think that's what confused me, lostinimaginaryworlds. My research didn't seem weird. Maybe learning about dyslexia could be different. I don't know. Thanks for stopping by.

  10. You're to be congratulated with no weird searches. I think you are more sane than I am. No, I know you are. :-)

    1. LOL, C Lee. Maybe my definition of weird is different to others. As for being sane. Depends on what a person considers as sane. Let's think on that. Thanks for stopping by.

  11. Or are you just not going to admit it? lol

    1. Yes, Karin, and I thought of an answer later. I'm slow. It takes awhile. But researching dyslexia could be weird. The word weird is what confused me. Anyhow, have a lovely day.

  13. LOL Good post. I feel that way most of the time.

    1. Thanks, Diane. Yes, my mind just went blank. The word "weird" threw me, I think. After reading some of the other entries, I understood better. Thanks for stopping by.
