Suffering from Writer's Block? Need to do something new? Want to turn off your inner critic, push yourself and create a fun story now? By popular demand, we've brought back Terry Faust for another demonstration of his Write Now! game. Write Now! is a creative writing card game, designed to stimulate imaginative thinking and flex mental muscles. In just 20 minutes, writers improvise a story from five cards drawn from the categories of character, place, event, item and motivation. Afterwards, those that want to will share their stories and we'll have a quick reading.
The idea is not to craft a masterpiece but to use most or all of the card suggestions to construct a simple narrative. This presentation needs folks willing to write fast--it's not for everyone. But if you think you can manage quick thinking and a speedy pen, I can guarantee the results will be hilarious. Terry will award a Write Now! game to the writer who gets the best response from the group.
