CWCG #2: April 2nd, 2011

Creative Writing Challenge Game

Okay, folks!  Time for round TWO!

I think the first CWCG went well.  I know a few participants are wrestling with their schedules to get their's posted.  I myself was running behind, having put off the final edits only to find myself lacking time when project #1 was due.  I'm looking forward to reading the others as soon as they get posted so let us know!

Ready for this month's words?
(fanning and spinning dictionary with eyes closed pretending to hear a drum roll)

Eyebrow -- the bony arch over each eye or the hair growing on this
Disharmony -- discord, absence of harmony
Frailty -- being frail, a moral weakness
Intransigent -- refusing to compromise
Thesis -- a proposition to be defended in an argument; a long research paper written by a candidate for a masters degree.

Theme:  Weather


This month I decided to add a picture.  This concept came to me from the original PFC.  But, I won't be adding more than one picture whereas the PFC was based completely on the pictures.

FYI, if you are curious to know what exactly the PFC was, here is an excerpt of how it worked and my very first PFC piece.  (Boy have I grown, and implemented better grammar and punctuation since then.)

I say let us make this optional.  If the picture inspires you in some way or something about it insists on being included in your creative writing then go for it.  But it isn't mandatory.  I don't want to make this too complicated with too many rules.  Freedom to allow our thoughts to coagulate creatively is the concept of the CWCG.

All words must be used and your piece needs to be associated with the theme.  There is no word limit.  And, it doesn't have to be a story.  One could write a paragraph, a poem, or even a really efficiently constructed sentence.

FYI, anyone can play.  So if you are new here or a lurker, feel free to join us!  Just post a comment so we know you are writing along with us.

I'm going to set the due date for CWCG #2 for Friday, April 29th, 2011.  This gives us four weeks.  Get those mental transmitters going and Happy Writing!!
