Hi all I lead a small writer's group that includes teens. I have been doing things like picture prompts, pantoums, having each of them write a first sentence, then switch with one another and use that as the beginning of a story... different fun stuff

I am getting stale, I find myself needing a group that is more personal growth oriented, so I am separately starting up a woman's group (that is beside the point though ) Does anyone have any great, fresh ideas? I could thumb through different books, but I am bored with my books.

Next week they are bringing pics of themselves and we are going to use them as prompts to explore the self in the past and write a dialogue between the "now" self, and the past self.


                                Whatever will be, already is...

How about a challenge to sit down and write for an hour (or a half hour) uninterrupted? Start with no plans and just type non-stop until the timer goes off and see where it takes you.
