The Monday Morning Writing Chain

A word is not the same with one writer as with another.  One tears it from his guts.  The other pulls it out of his overcoat pocket.  ~Charles Peguy

Every Monday morning, the writing prompt arrives at 10:00 AM. Joyce Norman, writer, editor and coach posts the prompt on her Facebook status and the fun begins. Anybody can play, all writers are welcome to add a paragraph or two. The dialogue segues into different dialects, the names change and revert to original and the story unfolds throughout the morning. Each author creates, each author moves the storyline forward and the plot develops over the course of a day and sometimes, a week.

Checking in on Monday morning, you might find a medieval castle stormed by invaders with broadswords, or a meeting in a South Pacific bali hai. The plane taking off with a secret stowaway heading into a hurricane gives broad latitude for the action scene to follow. Each author lends voice to the story, with great creative additions stretching over the page.

Advice from the great writers of past and present is: Write. Write. Write. And write. Practice makes perfect is the best advice for any creative effort. And the Monday Morning Writing Chain is available for anybody to add their idea and move the story forward. Add a character, write a few lines of dialogue, join in the fun. Your practice will be done while you create with other great writers of the day.

Every Monday Morning. 10:00 AM. Add your link to the chain. Let’s see what we can create.
