It’s hard to believe it, but the first month of 2020 is already history. As such, we’re following up our prompt about your dream writing group with one about an important day.
February’s theme is Anniversaries, remembrances of important days in your life or in the lives of a few characters of your devising. Birthdays, first meetings, weddings, travels, whatever moments ring and rebound in memory and continue shaping lives and viewpoints long afterwards. Here is one example.
In addition to personal stories, we are also looking for fiction and poetry on the subject. Do you have a section of your book that centers around a holiday, memory, birthday, or other special event? What about a poem you sent to a loved one to commemorate something or remind them of a special memory?
This month is also the month of Valentine’s Day, a holiday charged with drama and expectation, opportunity and high emotion. Let it flow out and join us in this month’s prompt!
This is a great month to participate and pay attention, as we have some exciting opportunities for writers that we will be unveiling at the end of the month. Stay tuned, we’re just working out some final details.
