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 —

WordWrites Guild Open House

light-585346_1920Thursday, December 14th

6:00 – 7:30pm

Sally Stenger Depot Room

of the

Lawrenceburg Public Library

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!

Leave a comment

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.

Tonight’s Meeting Cancelled

Leave a comment

We apologize for providing such short notice, but tonight’s WordWrites Guild meeting has been cancelled. We regret any inconvenience this may have caused, but appreciate your understanding and hope to see everyone at the next WWG meeting at the North Dearborn Branch Library on November 9th at 6:00pm.

One Month, Two Meetings, Same Prompt!

Leave a comment

confused-2681507_1920

We understand that some of our faithful WordWrites Guild followers are a little confused about the same writing prompt being used for both October meetings.

thought-2123970_1920

Well, the reason for that bit of recycling is that some of our members only attend the Lawrenceburg meeting due to proximity to their home or job, personal schedules, etc., so they are unable to join us at the North Dearborn Library location. Since all of our members would like to take advantage of every prompt, we thought we’d simply share it with folks at both venues.

Now that you know the why – here’s a reminder about the what:

In 500 words or fewer, write a little something inspired by, based upon, or in spite of your greatest phobia. If you’d prefer not to share your own phobia(s), just make one up!

And don’t be afraid to have fun with it!

We’ll look forward to seeing you at 6:00pm at the Lawrenceburg Public Library on October 26th!

Although we hope to enjoy at least a few more weeks of warm weather, WordWrites Guild is looking forward to a productive autumn and an exciting winter. In addition to taking advantage of regular writing prompts, WWG members are in the process of critiquing Susan T.’s newest project, and are currently updating the group’s 2018 calendar that is posted below.

Every writer is invited to join this friendly group to talk about the craft of writing, the challenges of creating, and the thrill of language. No matter if you are new to writing or a seasoned author, you are welcome to stop by and connect with fellow wordsmiths.

The writer-focused meetings begin at 6:00PM and wrap up by 8:00PM. There is never a charge, and all you need to bring is yourself, your work, and your curiosity. There is no pressure to share your writing projects with the group, but you are encouraged to participate in discussions, critiques, and monthly writing exercises.

Please take a moment to subscribe to this site and/or sign up for email alerts. If you have any questions, please contact us for more information by email, text, and/or voice message.  We appreciate your interest and are looking forward to seeing you at our next meeting. Please note the upcoming dates and locations listed below.

It is officially October – the time of year when candles flicker and stories grow tall.

Unleash your inner raconteur and spin a story inspired by your greatest phobia in 500 words, or even fewer.

 

Terrifying – chilling – or just silly – it’s up to you. Put that candlelight and quill dripping with ink (it is ink, isn’t it?), to good use and bring your frighteningly best work to one or both of this month’s WordWrites Guild meetings:
