April is National Poetry Month and, as usual, we will focus on Poetry at the monthly meeting. John Jenkinson will be our special guest speaker on the subject.

  2. Write about your favorite childhood toy.

A Valentine for Venus – new release

Sonny Collins announces that his novelette, A Valentine for Venus, is now available as a Kindle book at Amazon.

A romantic and fun little novelette about what happens when Venus and Cupid bet on who can make someone fall in love first. To make it fair, their grandfather, Zeus, decides to forbid them the use of magic and then goes a step farther by sending them both to Earth as neighbors to a teenage girl and her widowed father – who are also his chosen mortals for this little experiment. They each have two weeks to help their subject fall in love by midnight on Valentine’s Day. Of course things get a bit complicated when Venus realizes her mortal might be falling for her instead of the woman she has chosen for him. Cupid, on the other hand, seems to have the entire high school under his influence. Or does he?

March 17th Meeting – Writing Prompts

Last month, at the meeting, the stories from the prompts were wonderful, each one so different. Thank you, Chris, Charlie, Tom and Starla for participating.

This month’s Prompts are:

  • Write about a time in your life when you struggled with a choice and made the right one.
  • What would you do if you were locked inside your favorite department store overnight?
  • What would you do if you could travel in the past?
  • How would you determine if you were in love with the person you are dating or is it just a passing fling?

OR you can write about anything you would like. The above are only suggestions.

Feb 17th Meeting – Writing Prompts

Prompts for KWA for February 2018

Last month, at the meeting, the stories from the prompts were brilliant. Our members come up with such wonderful stories and poems. Thank you, Chris, Gloria, Charlie, and Starla for participating.

This month’s Prompts are:

  1. You received a Valentine box of candy, and when you opened the card placed on top, you are shocked when you read who sent the chocolates. Why?
  2. Write a story featuring an Ouija board, a search engine, a self-help book.
  3. You’re digging in the garden and find a fist-sized nugget of gold. There’s more where that came from in this hilarious story of sudden wealth.
  4. Three children are sitting on a log near a stream. One of them looks up at the sky and says…

Now is your chance to write a short story. I have given you plenty of time? I think! Have fun and see you on February 17th- usual place, usual time.

Everyone have a great writing month.  Louise

Jan 20 Monthly Meeting – An attorney visits

If you saw the original post about a meeting on Cliffhangers and Plotting, disregard that. We will have that program later in the year. Instead we will be having an attorney visit our group. He will answer questions about what an attorney can and cannot do. This information should be helpful to anyone writing about attorneys, or just plain interesting.

It’s a new year and time to get motivated with your writing again. That’s what KWA is about: helping each other with motivation, education, and support in many ways.

To help with Motivation, maybe you need to do some practice writing. Here are the writing prompts provided by Louise for January, from Brian A. Klems and Zachary Petit – The Writing Prompt Book Camp.

1. You’re downtown, and see graffiti on an unlikely place – graffiti like you’ve never seen before, concerning someone you know.
2. They tour the house with the real estate agent. “We love it,” he said, “Is there anything we should know about the house’s past?” The agent looked down.
3. Write an obituary for your favorite fictional character (literary, television, etc.) including how the death occurred.

Share your writing at the January 20th meeting.
