Writers Group

Stream of consciousness stories written at the Cliffside Village Writer’s Group.

At the End of a Rainbow

We are two weeks into the second writing session of the year and our writing spirits are high. I’m delighted to hear that some of the members have been motivated to continue writing on their own time. Also it seems most are happy enough with what they produce at...

She Stepped onto the Rickety Wooden Bridge

One of my favourite parts of the writer’s group is getting to see all the different ways people use the prompts. Not just in terms of how their story differs from mine (although that is wonderful), but seeing how they approach the task every week. Trying new techniques (using...

He Looked Back but Couldn’t See Through the Fog

A fun writer’s group (a couple weeks ago now) that produced a story I’m kind of interested to continue. A few of the stories that I’ve started through the group have had potential to continue into something interesting, but they’ve never been high on my list of writing priorities....

I haven’t posted a writer’s group piece in a while. Mostly that is because my writing is rusty at the moment, but I am starting to get back in the groove. One of the prompts from yesterday’s session was a brightly wrapped box. Here is what I did with...

Lace Curtains

By popular demand the writer’s group will be extended an extra four weeks! More info on that later, and probably not here because I’m not overly convinced that this gets read very often or is the kind of place people go to for current or relevant information. It is...

The Pavement was Cracked

This week’s writer’s group was lots of fun. So was last weeks but I was being lazy and distracted and didn’t actually post anything about it. I’d be sorry but honestly you’re better off, my stories last week were not up to my usual mediocre standard of stream of...

Let the Writing Begin… Again

Last night the writer’s group reconvened, with mostly new members. I for one had a lovely time, it’s hard to go wrong with nice people who are eager to write. The format remained the same, a prompt is given and we have 20 minutes to use it however we’d...

You Knew What was in the Case

Story by Genevieve Clovis Penny sat on the dusty rug on the attic floor. Her nose was cold and so were her fingers but she hardly noticed so enraptured by what she’d found. The attic was full of boxes of old clothes, books, toys from when they’d been kids....
