There is something about a new year with its shining promises and new beginnings. It is a clean slate, a chance for a fresh start.

What does 2019 have in store for you? Romance? Fortune? Fame? Perhaps this year you will publish the novel you have worked on for such a long time. On the other hand, maybe you will write the short story or poem that has been dancing nightly in your brain.

Maybe you will start 2019 by attending a WordWrites Guild meeting. We are a friendly group and would love for you to join us. We meet the second and fourth Thursday of each month at 6 p.m. The next meeting is January 10 in the Depot Room of the Lawrenceburg Public Library.

Since each New Year brings changes, CHANGE is the writing prompt for the January 10 meeting. Do you have specific thoughts on change, or do you just go with the flow? This is your chance to write about change in an essay, poem, or short story. Be ready to share at the meeting. If you aren’t ready for change, bring something you’ve written in the past for sharing.
