Red Bull for Writers (RBW) - Goals/Prompts/Readings/Writing Evening
RBW evenings are specifically designed to get you goin and your words flowin... 1. We start with a brief update of the Support and Success Journal. Last week three writers set goals. We'll celebrate their progress and set new goals. 2. Then an intensive writing session to get the juices flowing. A writing prompt. Write for 5 minutes. Rinse and repeat five times. (Feel free to bring whatever you're most comfortable writing on: laptop, pen and paper; your arm). 3. Then if anyone has any work they'd like feedback on they can hand out copies for the group and read their work. Please no more than about 5-10 minute readings. 4. Now that new goals have been set, the writing juices are flowing, and we've been inspired to write, we'll spend the remainder of the time working on whatever we want. I'll be attacking final edits on my short story anthology... Be ready to work.

What we're about

Writing, whether full-time or in those spare moments, can be a lonely pursuit. My goal is that KC WSW will provide a support system for writers of all types. Not making the progress you'd like? Tell the group your goals and we'll help you by carrot or stick. No idea if self-publishing makes sense for you? Ask the group. Get answers. Need to bounce an idea/story/blog post off patient and experienced ears? Drop your story into KC WSW's DropBox, show your smiling face at the next meeting and bathe in the constructive criticism.

The DropBox is for you to upload writing you'd like others to read and track your progress on the Support and Success Journal. The Journal has fields for: (a) your current goal, (b) your deadline, (c) what you've completed by each meeting, AND (iv) your cumulative reward points for meeting your goals. WHAT ARE THE REWARDS?? Hell if I know, but I'm sure we'll figure it out. Like our stories, KC WSW is a work in progress.

FYI my first goal was setting the first meeting. I just gave myself one (1) reward point. Damn skippy. Want us to gently push you forward? Enter a tough but doable goal. Want nothing but to meet writers? Your goal is "Show up." Easy peasy.

Oh, and we're centered downtown(ish). There are other great writers groups in KC, but holy moly are they way the hell away from Downtown.
