Weekly Writing Prompt — May 16, 2013 Edition

I think I may have jinxed myself on Tuesday night at the Workshop. I said that night that sometimes the weekly writing prompt — scheduled for Wednesdays — sometimes doesn’t arrive until Thursdays.

Wa, La! — your Ides of May issue. 
However, better late than later, I say.
At any rate, those that missed Tuesdays Workshop, I think really missed some good stuff. I know, I know, I say that all the time, but it’s true. We learn so much from one another and attendees got to really learn lots from those attending.
Our next Workshop is May 28; so, I hope to see many of you there. Please be ready to hand out at least three copies of a chapter, some poems, a short story, an essay or article, for your fellow writers to critique and provide feedback. We’re going to be focused on that the next time.
Your prompt this week?
A Promise:  Make a promise to either a) attend a writer’s cafe (see the schedule here), or the next Workshop before May 29.
If you seriously, cannot make any of those, find a literary-centered event — a reading, a book signing, a book festival, whatever, and plan to attend.
Then tell me about your experience. Send me an email about your time at the writer’s cafe, the workshop, the book signing, whatever.
There may be a response for further action, or there may just be a pat on the back. It’s a bit of Promise Roulette, if you will.
That’s it. Simple enough. I’m giving you permission to carve out time to be the writer you want to be. Now you just need to act.
Now your moment of Writing Zen:
“To gain your own voice, you have to forget about having it heard.”
—Allen Ginsberg, Author

“But words are things, and a small drop of ink,
Falling, like dew upon a thought, produces
That which makes thousands, perhaps millions, think.” ~ Lord Byron
