Weekly Writing Prompt — It’s NaNoWriMo Month! — 11/3/10 Edition

I’m calling this the birthday edition! And soon you’ll see why….

NaNoWriMo is 12 years old! Happy Birthday to an event that raises funds and awareness for literacy, writers and readers — young and old alike. Besides it’s just a great motivator for us.


Along with yours truly, people like Dolph Lundgren, Dennis Miller and Charles Bronson have birth dates today. I see a common cord through the lives of all these people — true fighters for what they believe in. I believe in you, my writing compatriots; Charles Bronson believed in justice; Dennis Miller worked towards social justice and Dolph Lundgren apparently believes in fighting old age (dang he looks good!). So today’s writing prompt is about fighting. Write a fight scene or a court room scene or a heated arguement between lovers. Don’t stop until you’ve written more than 1,500 words. For those doing NaNo — that will get you close to your word count goal for the day. Remember to include all the senses in the scene.


And now your moment of Writing Zen:

“Trends don’t mean anything to me. If I like something, I’ll do it. If I don’t, I won’t do it, and I wouldn’t care if everybody in the country mocked me.” — Dennis Miller.


Write – In @ Isadora’s Friday at 9:30 a.m. until 11:30 a.m.
Write-In @ North Bend Library Saturday at 10 a.m.

Hope to see you there!

“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
