Online Writer's Circle

Are you a fellow writer?  Looking for inspiration or a way to practice?  Look no further.

I give you the Online Writer's Circle.

 

How it Works

 

Every Monday I will post a new writing exercise on my blog. All you need to do is follow the exercise by taking some time that week to sit down and write. Just write, don't edit, don't think. Just let whatever comes out onto paper (or computer screen) come to life!

 

On Sunday, I will post my writing from the prompt. If you feel like sharing, please do the same. This is just for fun to get those creative juices flowing and keep those writing muscles in shape. You never know what an idea will turn into.

 

I hope you all enjoy!

It's the best part of Summer time; Pool Time!

After afternoon naps have ended we jump into our swimsuits and lather on layers of sunscreen. Padded footsteps make our way out the old screen door which slams behind us with a loud bang! Towels in hand we enter the gated pool area with anticipation of the first splash. Luckily the water is warm, not that the kids care, warm and yet refreshing because the air is hot and thick. It do...

We are back to doing a 15 minute activity this week where you will choose one of each of the following listed below and incorporate the words into your piece. Deadline, as alwa...

I carried my bag of treasures home proudly. It was amazing what you could get at a yard sale. Today's find was a zip lock bag full of jewelry for the fantastic price of $1.75! And not those puny snack bags like mummy packed in my lunch - this was one if those freezer bag she puts the chicken in! $1.75 for the whole lot!
I was eager to get home and dump it out on my bed. There was a long pearl necklace I could wear at tea parti...

I looked over the names on the list again. Seriously? All these people? Where were we going to put them all? After twenty years of friendship, I didn't even know some of Cara's cousins and second cousins even existed. And why on God's green earth did her mom feel the need to invite every single friend she ever had... Beverly's friends, not even Cara's! How well could she even know them?
All these interlopers plus the pack of c...

So you need only read the subject and write as you please whichever way you choose to. Please also note that we are doing a 10 minute timed exercise this...

Reluctantly, he handed over the key and sighed. He watched as the other man examined it. "There, that wasn't so hard, was it?" He asked, turning the ancient key over in his hand.
Thomas shrugged, trying to hide the turmoil within. "May I have it back now please sir. I can not lose it."
He closed a big fist around it. "No. Now I want you to show me what it opens."
Thomas' stomach dropped. This had been his fear all along. Sir W...
