    THE NOVEMBER 2022 PROMPT: Quitting.

    DISCUSSION: Faster Than A Speeding Bullet! Writing Out-Of-This-World Fiction

    RECOMMENDED READING: https://networlding.com/how-to-write-speculative-fiction/

    -------------------------

    The prompt: Each month, we make available a voluntary prompt by the week before the meetup. Members may choose to write a short piece, fiction or nonfiction, poetry, prose, or script, as long as it conforms to the rules of the prompt.

    Prompt Rules : 800 words max.

    The discussion: Each month, we have one or more discussion topics related to the art and/or business of writing. We also provide recommended reading, which are topical links to use as a starting point. If you have a topic you would like to cover, let us know!

    Critiques: Members can bring copies of a written piece up to 5,000 words to a meetup and distribute it to be critiqued at a subsequent meetup. Alternately, submissions can be emailed to [masked], where they will be placed into a Google Drive accessible to volunteers for critique.
