christmas-1791778_1920As you enjoy the seasonal festivities on Thursday evening, you might want to share your creative take on this month’s writing prompt:

Winter Holiday Lost and Found

If you are familiar with WWG’s monthly writing prompts, it will come as no surprise that the word count is limited to 500 words, and the prompt is simply a starting point – you can incorporate the exact words in your piece, or you’re welcome to use the words purely as inspiration. Whether you prefer to write a poem, a short-short story, lyrics to a song – perhaps with bells ringing in the background – the choice is yours.

A Prompt Invitation

The seasons are in a whirl! Spring hopped into summer, which dove into autumn, which is falling into the wintry-weather months oh so soon. Ahhh – well, we might have lost the daffodils for a little while, but we will soon find plenty of snowflakes!

And that leads us right into this month’s writing prompt –

Winter Holiday Lost and Found

It is certainly up to you to determine which of the many winter holidays to include in the piece, as well as what has been found and what has been lost. We do know that all will be revealed when we share our 500 word (or less) masterpieces at the annual —

Everyone is warmly invited to drop by to meet local writers, learn more about WWG, and enjoy seasonal refreshments.

For those writers who would like to read their Winter Holiday Lost and Found piece, there will be ample opportunity to do so. If you are new to the area and/or unfamiliar with WordWrites Guild, you are welcome to share your own work that evening, or simply sit back, sip some cocoa, and listen.

We look forward to seeing old companions and welcoming new friends  – and to hearing wintry-fresh stories!

NaNoWriMo comes to WWG

Leave a comment

Many of you are already familiar with NaNoWriMo – the national challenge to write a novel in just one month. But did you realize that WordWrites Guild folks are throwing their quills and ink pots into the literary ring of terror, as well?

public-library-1388382_1920

Writers who are burning that midnight oil, slaying untamed dragons, or sloshing through dark and stormy nights in an effort to complete 50,000 readable, coherent and novel-worthy words in just thirty days, are enthusiastically invited to drop in to the North Dearborn Branch Library for an unofficial Write-In each and every Tuesday during the month of November from 12-3. There will be plenty of hot coffee, a variety of cookies, cakes, etc. (yes, any excuse to bake), and a quiet place in which to grapple with the tools of the trade – words.

No need to reserve a spot or arrive at a specific time – this is a drop-in-write-in, so stop by as your schedule allows.  You’ll be warmly welcomed and heartily encouraged in your quest!

Looking Forward to Seeing You!

Wow – November has arrived even before a lot of us were able to really enjoy October’s breezy evenings and crunchy leaves. Now it’s time for cider and gourds and pie!

On Thursday, November 9th, area writers are invited to drop by the North Dearborn Library to share their work for some friendly feedback, take part in respectful critiques of members’ projects, and read whatever they’ve come up with based upon the most recent writing prompt.

We are also asking members to stop by the front desk at the North Dearborn Branch Library to thank the manager, librarians, staff and volunteers for all that they have done for WWG and for the community. This second Thursday in November will be the last official WWG meeting at North Dearborn as we make a few changes to better serve writers throughout Southeastern Indiana, Northern Kentucky and the Greater Cincinnati region.

Please note that we will NOT meet on the fourth Thursday of November due to the holiday. If you haven’t already done so, you might want to subscribe to WordWrites Guild in order to stay up to date on all that will be going on in the coming year. We have some changes planned and a few events in the works that you won’t want to miss – including our annual Open House on December 14th in the Depot Room of the Lawrenceburg Public Library – but more about that later.
