So it was me and the leader last night at the Lost Word Writers Group at Jackson District Library in Jackson Michigan. Even though it was just the two of us I felt it was productive. We did a writing exercise about first encounters which I felt good enough about to expand and submit to a writers contest for short fiction online. I’m hoping for runner up (one of 10 places) or honorable mention (one of 10 places too).
I don’t believe my piece is strong enough to win it all, but I don’t care. I’m going for bottom of the barrel type of placement and hope to make a good showing there. I just want my writing to be recognized. I would cut and paste it here, but putting it in my blog constitutes publishing and I don’t want to publish it randomly on my own. I want someone else to award placement to it and let me bask in the realm of honorable mention for all to see.
I liked the writing prompt and being timed. Think I’ll look on the web to see what is out there for timed writing prompts as I seem to do some pretty good work when I am under pressure especially if it is for an audience. I’ll let you know what I find or if you know of something that offers a writing prompt (direction for the writing to take) and a timed exercise then by all means let me know in the comments section of my blog.
As always. Thanks for reading my blog.
