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!

Editing Tools Comparison

Leave a comment

Dan Hawkins, WordWrites Guild co-chair and the owner of Hawkins Editing, LLC, will present an Editing Tools Comparison. He will examine the platform requirements, cost, functions, and strengths and weaknesses of six computerized editing tools. The tools range from revered to reviled and their costs range from free to $139.95 per year. Some are web based, some stand alone, and some are Word add-ins.

Dan will share his experience with the editing features of FileCleaner, Grammarly, Hemingway, Microsoft Word, PerfectIt, and SmartEdit. The presentation will also include a brief demonstration of each tool.

Join us for our meeting and Dan’s presentation June 2, at 6:00 PM, in the Dunevant Meeting Room at the North Dearborn Branch of the Lawrenceburg Public Library District.

In just a few days, the skies will be ablaze

with shimmering red, white and blue as

America celebrates another birthday.

 

The WordWrites Guild will not meet on July 3rd

 

in order to have ample time to pack a picnic,

unfurl the beach towels and

sing along with the fife and drum!

 

Please note that

WordWrites Guild will meet again on

JULY 17th at the Lawrenceburg Public Library

6:00pm – 8:00pm

 

We will critique any submissions received through

July 10th at that time.

 

Have a water-safe, fireworks-savvy, and

Wonderful Fourth of July!
