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:

You

Me

Us

We’re looking forward to critiquing Susan T.’s current book-in-progress, sharing our prompt-inspired creations, and more! Be sure to mark your calendars for:

Thursday, March 8th in the Depot Room at the Lawrenceburg Public Library  6-8:00pm

You are cordially invited to attend the first WordWrites Guild meeting to be held in the meeting room of the Harrison Branch of the Cincinnati Public Library tonight from 6:00pm-8:00pm. We will critique Susan T.’s latest chapters, share our unique interpretations of this month’s three-word writing prompt (factitious, enhance and excruciating), and share our writing experiences with fellow wordies.

There is no need to RSVP – simply stop by and get to know this community of writers. We look forward to seeing you this evening.

Thank You …

christmas-1791778_1920As you enjoy the seasonal festivities on Thursday evening, you might want to share your creative take on this month’s writing prompt:

Winter Holiday Lost and Found

If you are familiar with WWG’s monthly writing prompts, it will come as no surprise that the word count is limited to 500 words, and the prompt is simply a starting point – you can incorporate the exact words in your piece, or you’re welcome to use the words purely as inspiration. Whether you prefer to write a poem, a short-short story, lyrics to a song – perhaps with bells ringing in the background – the choice is yours.

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?

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.
