Have a Slice of Pi …

Leave a comment


Yay! Yay! It’s Pi Day! No, we didn’t overlook the last letter, March 14th really is International Pi day as in 3.14 … So, if you need some great ideas for your own Pi-Day-Pi-Tay, you might want to consider the following:


Feel free to dance along with the music of Pi …


Feel free to gather your friends and put those often overlooked dominoes to good use, or at least time-consuming use …


If you’d like to offer slices of pie to as many of your friends who can recite – from memory – the most digits of the more than one trillion that make up a small part of pi, here’s a  peek at the first million – just to satisfy your curiosity…


And if you’d like to celebrate this very important number while supporting one of the many libraries that are near and dear to WordWrites Guild members’ hearts, you are invited to join the Friends of the Lawrenceburg Public Library for some edible sweet pie (and quiche – the savory twin!), and a mathematical movie – Hidden Figures. The evening begins at 6:00pm in the Ewbank Room of the Lawrenceburg Library. This is a free community, adults-only event, so bring your friends aand join the Friends as they support the library on International Pi Day – March 14th!



In the Company of Writers

This month can be the month when you finally take that chance and stop by a WordWrites Guild meeting.  Whether you are new to writing or a seasoned pro, you are welcome to share your love of words in a friendly, comfortable and enthusiastic setting.

This month’s prompt came to us from WWG member Pat H. (Thank you, Pat!). Have some fun and see what you can do with it in 500 words or fewer, and then attend one or both WWG meetings in March to find out where the following three words lead your fellow writers:

  • To celebrate National Poetry Month, drop-in writing sessions are scheduled for every Tuesday in April at 2:00pm at the North Dearborn Public Library. These casual get-togethers provide a quiet place to write in the silent company of fellow wordsmiths.  These afternoon sessions offer free WiFi, light refreshments, and a full hour away from distractions.


  • WordWrites Guild is delighted to announce that Maureen Sheets, CPA, will be our guest speaker in May, 2018. Ms. Sheets will talk with WWG members about the business side of writing, and will be available to answer general questions about the importance of record keeping, what is an allowable deduction, and the difference between writing as a business or as a hobby.



There is always something happening with WordWrites Guild, so mark your calendar with the locations and times of monthly meetings; make a date with your creative self in April for Tuesdays at Two; plan for a fiscally informative evening in May, and be sure to sign up for regular updates so you will always know what’s new at WordWrites Guild!

As Easy As 5-7-5, Sort Of

a Japanese poem of seventeen syllables, in three lines of five, seven, and five, that do not rhyme – traditionally evoking images of the natural world.

 Simply write one or more haiku – about anything you can imagine.
This prompt opens the door to your natural creativity, while opening a window to what could be fresh information. The following article might shed some light on the subtleties of haiku:
So, now that you’ve read, glanced at, or studied the linked information, will you opt to write haiku based upon the 5-7-5 rule, or will you try your hand at the traditional 10-14 syllable version as described in the article linked above?
Whichever path you choose, you are invited to share your writing at the next WordWrites Guild meeting at the North Dearborn Public Library on September 14th at 6:00pm.
Please be sure to bring your printed or electronic critiques of S.T.’s new book, and any writing that you might like to share with the group.

We at WordWrites Guild are an eclectic mix of folks – teachers, painters, drivers, students, grandparents, musicians, engineers – all Jacks and Jills of many trades! In an effort to bring fresh creativity into our writing, from time to time we will be using photographs, music, and more for our twice-monthly writing prompts.

We are excited about the following image and can’t wait to hear what everyone comes up with for the August 24th at the Lawrenceburg Public Library at 6:00pm when they share their writing inspired by:


Have fun – with 500 words, or fewer!

IMPORTANT NOTE — Although the next WWG meeting will be held at the normal 6:00pm time, at the normal North Dearborn Public Library location, on the normal second Thursday of the month, due to members’ availability, this prompt will be shared at the later August meeting, as stated correctly above.
