Fun With Words for our 30th Anniversary year!
Fun With Words
Maryland Writers’ Association (MWA) invites you to have fun writing part of an espionage techno-thriller using only 100 words. In your 100 words, weave together the main character (You name them), a piece of military equipment (you pick), a warning tone, and a green coffee cup. Please visit www.mwawritersroundtable.org/fun-with-words, to read a sample response from this prompt, if you are unsure of how to write this. Submit your Fun With Words response to www.mwawritersroundtable.org/submit-fun-with-words by the 20th of the month and receive an MWA Fun With Words Submission Certificate. Selected responses will be published next month.
A green coffee cup, half-filled with the chilled black liquid, sat to the right of the computer screen, untouched for several hours. Tony Medoro scrolled through the latest classified intel summaries, searching for the info he needed, to no avail. The name he needed appeared on no classified terrorist database or watch list. A previous search with his non-secure Blackberry turned up nothing on the law enforcement register either, not NCIS, not anything. Who the hell was this guy?
A warning tone sounded, a wavering siren. Tony picked up his M-16 and ratcheted a round into the chamber, safety off.

We found a game that helps you right, it’s called Writers Bloxx. You roll the die and it gives you Genre, Event, Time, Object, Location, and Character. With the use of these six things you have six minutes to write a story with as many things included as you can. We first played as a group at the Holiday Party and now we play at the end of every meeting!
If you want to get your hands on a copy of the game or find out more the link is https://www.writersbloxx.com/
