WRITE CLUB- Anthology project

In response to a Meetup discussion about plagerism on 9 July 2013, Mia stated that you cannot steal an idea, that every writer has their own voice and that even given the same basic premise, writers will produce very different stories. This discussion became a challenge and that challenge became the spark for an anthology of short stories.

To level the playing field, every writer will be given the same starting point: a random roll of all 12 Writing Blocks Idea Dice®. Each writer must incorporate the terms into their story but are free to order and interpret them in any way they like.

THE WRITING BLOCKS WILL BE ROLLED AT THIS 23 July 2013 MEETING and the Submission Rules and link to the closed YahooGroup will be given out at that time.

Open to all active members (who have attended a meeting within the past 3 months, or commit to attending for at least the next 3) of The Writing Corner Meetup, published and pre-published. If you have yet to come out and join us, this would be the best time!

    This sounds like a lot of fun! I can't commit to this timeline due to other projects, but looking forward to reading the results.

    I have a meeting in DC until 5:30pm, so I'll be scrambling to get back to Columbia in time (and may be a few minutes late)...but I'll be there!

      Can't wait to see you again and will cross my fingers that the Traffic Gods are benevolent :)

    Sadly, I'll be in New Jersey, lounging on the beach and trying not to get sunburned. :-p

      No worries- you're a regular member and will still be welcome to contribute to the book!

    I will be late as I have a ballet class form 5:30 to 6:30 pm. But it's in Columbia, so not too late.

I started the group because there wasn't any other type of group like this. I've met some great folks in the group who have become close friends and have also met some amazing business owners.
