Summertime and the Writing is Easy …

Leave a comment

As some of you may be aware, we at WWG have decided to end our MeetUp presence. We do want to assure everyone that our actual, in-person meetings continue – so we encourage you to take advantage of the free support, the abundant camaraderie, and the enlightening conversation about language, words and creativity.

Our next meeting will be held at the Lawrenceburg Public Library in the Ewbank Room on Thursday, July 16, from 6:00PM – 8:00PM. We will be sharing our always creative responses to the last meeting’s writing assignment – and reviewing at least one new submission.

In 250 words or less, write a story about a main character who is a homeless person who is a Hugger.

Put the character in a situation dealing with woods and an award ceremony.

These prompts were chosen at random from The Storymatic tool/game/prompt generator.

Please join us for an evening of shop-talk and friendship.

April is Hopping with Wordy Fun!

2 Comments

Hello Fellow Writers,

WordWrites Guild is gearing up for an especially busy month. We are currently reviewing two writers’ submissions. One is a delightfully written young readers’ chapter book – very funny! The other is a poignant short story about a beloved horse.

One of our members has accepted the Blogging A to Z Challenge. She and countless others will post to their blogs something, anything inspired by a different letter of the alphabet every day – except Sundays – through the month of April.

Alphonse-Mucha-Poetry

This is also National Poetry Month, so Word Geeks might like to visit the link for some terrific ideas for celebrating poetry. And with that in mind, every pocket will surely be filled with poems on April 30th – National Poem in Your Pocket Day.

We hope everyone has ample opportunity to play with language – indoors and especially out now that the days are warm and sunny. Have great fun and know that you are always welcome to stop by any WordWrites Guild meeting to share your love of words with like-minded folks.

Happy Writing!

WINTRY WEATHER = TOASTY TYPING

Even though skies are gray and temperatures plummet, there is no reason to shiver in the chill – simply head to your desk and keep those fingertips warm by writing the next  literary masterpiece.

As your work progresses, be sure to attend WordWrite Guild meetings. Each twice-monthly meeting offers members ample opportunity to share their work for honest critique and sincere accolades.

Under the Writing tab, all writers will find a new writing assignment that is chosen by the group at each preceding meeting. Everyone is encouraged to read their piece aloud. It is always fun to hear the many variations and perspectives that stem from one prompt.

Everyone is also invited to share examples of published authors’ incredible writing – or examples of horrific grammar, punctuation, sentence structure, etc. All writers learn from one another – and sometimes those lessons are found in the most unexpected places.

As we all create and stumble and celebrate and ponder, fellow word-geeks at WordWrites Guild are there to share the process.

We are a welcoming group of writers who share a love of language and a need to put words to paper; all with a sense of fun and friendship. We are looking forward to seeing you at our next meeting!

New Year – Fresh Writing!

Leave a comment

We are happy to announce that WordWrites Guild is now on Meetup.com,

We are looking forward to meeting new writers who have learned about us through this new site.

We at WordWrites Guild hope that each of you enjoyed safe and happy holidays – and that all of those family dinners, retail adventures, and quiet moments have resulted in an abundance of inspired writing.

If you are an experienced writer who hopes to put more words on paper, complete that novel, or experiment with a different genre this year, then WordWrites Guild welcomes you. If you are a new writer who is just beginning to discover the fun of putting pen to paper, then we invite you to join our respectful and encouraging group. Our members know all too well the joy and frustration of word-wrangling, so enjoy sharing tips, lessons learned, and challenges with our writing community.

Our meetings will resume on January 15, 2015 at the NORTH DEARBORN PUBLIC LIBRARY at 6:00pm.  As always, our meetings are free of charge and open to all writers of any genre or skill level.

We look forward to seeing you this month and throughout the new year.
