Monthly Meeting

The title of the November 3 meeting is “You Wrote What??”

Bring your own unique imagination to this month’s program!

You will each get – totally randomly, every one different – the first sentence of a published novel. You will use that sentence to write the opening of a new novel, short story, poem, or nonfiction article … in exactly ten minutes.

After that frantic flurry, we will read aloud what we wrote. The creations will not be critiqued, but should absolutely be applauded. Novelty rules.

Bring a pen or pencil. The ringmaster will provide writing paper and the quotes.

To make everything fair, the ringmaster will also perform this exercise, with a quote given, also unwarned, by a SAWG board member.

At the end of the program, everyone will get a copy of all the quotes used in the exercise, including the authors’ names and book titles.

Come and dive in! This will be fun and funny, and your own writing will benefit and sharpen from the experience.

All members, friends, and bemused and/or puzzled strangers are welcome to join us and join in at 7:00 p.m. at the Sea Island Shrimp House, 10303 IH-10 West, San Antonio TX 78230. Come early to grab a meal, snack or drink, to keep Sea Island happy to continue to host us.
