This latest writing prompt might be a tad more challenging than some of our previous posts have been, so get ready to crack open the books, warm up the search engine and put the library reference desk on speed-dial.

In 500 words or less, write a little something that includes the following:

WHO – A Master Builder

WHAT – Evaluate

WHEN – Tenth Century

WHERE – Tibet

The next meeting of the WordWrites Guild is scheduled for Thursday, February 23rd at the Lawrenceburg Public Library at 6:00PM. All writers are encouraged to take part in the discussions, critiques, and sharing of creative work that are integral to every meeting.

This Thursday is THE Day!

This is just a friendly reminder about the next WordWrites Guild meeting.

You are invited to share your work with fellow writers on this Thursday, February 2nd, at 6:00PM at the North Dearborn Branch Library.

It will be great to see what everyone has done with the four words that were chosen for the latest prompt (Innovation, Garbled, Recreant, Cryptic), and there will be a special viewing of the short film, El Destino, followed by a discussion of different ways to communicate using characters’ movements, emotions, surroundings, etc. without any dialogue.

Please join us for a creative and casual gathering of writers.

It’s time to sharpen your pencils, gather your masterpieces, and join fellow wordsmiths at this week’s gathering of writers at the Lawrenceburg Public Library at  6:00PM in the Ewbank Room.

The current writing prompt is:

The entrance to the tunnel was his only way out.

Although the final count is limited to 500 words, what you do with those words is of course entirely up to you. It’s always exciting to hear different interpretations, to discover a fresh twist on each new prompt. And as always, membership is free; the setting casual and friendly.

We’re looking forward to seeing you on…

Will this be The Year?

The year you attend your first writers’ conference?

The year you complete that novel? Screenplay? Epic poem?

The year you join WordWrites Guild and connect with fellow writers?

This could be the year …

It’s as easy as sending an email, making a call,

coming to a meeting.
