What better way to shake off the chill of April showers than to stop by for some fresh ideas and warm conversation at tonight’s WordWrites Guild meeting? We’ll be gathering at the North Dearborn Library at 6:00pm and would love to see you!
The prompt for tonight’s 500 word writing exercise allows each writer to choose at least four – but you are welcome to use all – of the words listed below. Have fun!

This latest writing prompt might be a tad more challenging than some of our previous posts have been, so get ready to crack open the books, warm up the search engine and put the library reference desk on speed-dial.
In 500 words or less, write a little something that includes the following:
WHO – A Master Builder
WHAT – Evaluate
WHEN – Tenth Century
WHERE – Tibet
The next meeting of the WordWrites Guild is scheduled for Thursday, February 23rd at the Lawrenceburg Public Library at 6:00PM. All writers are encouraged to take part in the discussions, critiques, and sharing of creative work that are integral to every meeting.

Stories are based upon decisions – the woman refused to marry for love, so settled for wealth; the safe-cracker rescued the child, and in doing so exposed his true identity; the spider wrote fine things about the pig for his salvation, but not her own.
At every crossroad the writer faces choices, conflicts, opposites. This writing assignment was suggested by Marty, and is as simple or as complicated as you want it to be:
Begin with a binary situation, basically, the opposite of anything. It might be yes/no, war/peace, on/off, light/dark, life/death … anything that you consider to be two opposing somethings … and write a 512 word or less essay, poem, memoir, etc. incorporating that conflict.
Our next meeting will be especially exciting, enlightening, and entertaining as each of us shares our binary work. We hope you join us on Thursday, August 4th at the North Dearborn Branch Library at 6:00pm.
We always welcome members’ suggestions for writing prompts, guest speakers, and future events. Becoming a member is free and as easy as coming to a meeting. We welcome your input!
