Tags: Blog Monday Muse

I’m going to pretend (please play along) that the reason “This Week” is up so late is because I wanted to wait for the blog/muses to be published first. The real reason is obviously that I forgot. Apologies to you all.

Well and truly on the Bragging Stool this week is Alyson who was not only Highly Commended with ‘Left Behind’ in the Morgen Freeman monthly comp, but also won the Mags4Dorset short story competition. And, if that wasn’t enough, her crime story ‘Sweet Revenge’ made it onto Writing Magazine’s short list. Congratulations!

Adhocers this week are Sue (on page one!), Angela, Chris, Maggie and myself.  

Monday Muse

Nicola has provided some scary muses for us this week. Here they are:

  1. You’re driving on a country road. It is late at night. You are far from home. You realize, as you check your mirrors, there is a man hiding on the floor of your back seat.

  3. Something in the closet was making a strange noise, so I opened the door and…
  4. Write a story or poem that includes a church, a pumpkin and a black cat.
  5. Write a story or poem that takes place on a mortuary late at night

Blog

Jill has written a very interesting blog about what age people are when they start writing. I often think that I wish I’d started earlier, but I also think that you bring a lot more to your writing when you have experienced life a little. I’m sure it’s different for different people. Certainly interesting to think about whether your age affects your output.

October Challenges and Opportunities

Jill and I have pieces up in this section, but it’s certainly not too late to pen something for critiquing.

Meetings, etc.

The next Poetry Project (1) is scheduled for Friday October 27th 3pm.

The next Formal meeting is scheduled for Sunday October 29th with Sue in the chair.

 

Hope you all have a great, and productive, writing week!
