He Put His Face in the Water

I haven’t been very good at sharing stories with you all this year, even though I’m running two writer’s groups a week instead of just one. Partly this is because I keep forgetting. But also I have been writing more pieces that I either want to work on further...

The Cupboard was Empty

The last writer’s group of the year is off to a strong start. There’s a mix of new and returning members, but good stories all around. I’m hoping as the group progresses we will see a few more people willing to share there stories here, but for now you’ll...

Typing Out Stories

I am on my 3rd notebook since starting the writer’s group back in 2014. It wasn’t until I was almost finished the 2nd notebook that I realized it would be wise to type up all the pieces I wrote, not just the ones I posted here. So, for the...

You’ve had Nightmares Your Whole Life

The writer’s group carries on with much enthusiasm. We’ve got some really great stories coming out of the prompts that leave us wanting to know more. Hopefully the stories will be finished either at home or during the group by tying prompts together.  Here is one of my stories...

Sometimes during the writer’s group you get a prompt and immediately know what you’re going to do with it. Everything clicks into place. You start writing without hesitation thinking to yourself I’ve got this. Other times, you get the prompt and all the words you’ve ever known drain from...

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....
