Have you found that your writing flowed more easily than usual as a result of the current prompt?

The bus shelter in the rain.

Whether it has, or whether you have been mired in a literary drought (isn’t mixing weather and metaphors fun?), you are welcome to join fellow writers on this Thursday, June 22nd at the Lawrenceburg Public Library at 6:00pm – rain gear optional!

This soggy prompt might open up a watershed of ideas:

The bus shelter in the rain

Of course you know the routine – just write whatever you’d like using the prompt as inspiration, but limiting your masterpiece to 500 words or fewer.

Our next WordWrites Guild meeting will be held at the Lawrenceburg Public Library at 6:00pm on Thursday, June 22nd – rain or shine!

We welcome May with quite an interesting assortment of words with which to create, compose, and craft. These disparate choices were made by blindly reagirls-1149935_1920ching into that shimmering universe of language – a vintage box of vocabulary cards! Oh, the joy of discovering an antediluvian word – just waiting to be released from the dust and silence of disuse.

Circumlocution

Lavish

Placid

Euphony

Baffled

Protuberance

As always, the word limit is 500 – and you can use your imagination as far as content, genre, etc. Of course you are welcome to play along at home, although you might have a better time joining your fellow word-geeks at the next WordWrites Guild meeting on Thursday, May 11 at the North Dearborn Library from 6:00-8:00. We are always happy to see new faces, to hear new voices – and to learn new things!

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…
