What We’re Writing

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.

 


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/

Our Critique Group:

Eric Shoemaker –  is working on finding the right title for his newest novel featuring Rusty and Colleen.  He is tightening up one of the final scenes of the book and September and Darlene gave input.
Bryan Gorman – Shared the first draft of the first chapter “Ignite the Forge”. He has designed a world that did not develop past Medieval times (for a reason) where humans are matched with dragons at a young age.  Feedback and suggestions for how the world could be explained were shared and everyone liked the premise.  Keep writing Brian we want more!
September Lundeen – started a new short story called “The Interview” and though it is still a rough draft, got good input from Eric and Darlene.
Darlene Exum – is working on a suspenseful story featuring a harrowing car chase and heroine that is working through a difficult time, let’s just say!
