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:

As Easy As 5-7-5, Sort Of

hai·ku
ˈhīˌko͞o/
noun
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.

… but we are limited to 500, of course!

 

Yes, this is the prompt for Thursday, August 24th. After gazing into the many layers (or by simply glancing at the surface) of this quirky photo, in 500 words or less you can entertain, enlighten, educate – or entangle – the reader.

Join your fellow word aficionados at the Lawrenceburg Public Library  this Thursday evening at 6:00pm to share your own photo-inspired creation. It should be interesting …
