So, much to my dismay, [livejournal.com profile] brigits_flame recently announced that the community is closing down this summer.  I'm not sure how many of you were aware of the community, but they have been hosting monthly writing contests (occasionally for prizes, usually for personal gratification) for several years now.  There's talk of trying to keep something minimal going on, so it doesn't vanish completely, but I'm not sure whether that's going to go anywhere.

On the occasions when I've been able to take part, the Flame has been responsible for getting me to "poke" at writing even when it might not be at the forefront of my mind.  The weekly prompts got me writing, and actually sharing my writing; plus with the structure of the community/contest, I was getting and giving feedback on things, too.  It's been a great experience and I feel like my writing has really developed as a result.

I don't intend for this to be an advertisement-- they are shutting down, as I said-- but this all leads to a couple of questions:

What inspires you to write?  And what makes you willing to share what you have written?

So apparently, in addition to Script Frenzy being this month, it's also National Poetry Month.

And therefore I bring to you, thanks to the New York Times, a bunch of random things to do with poetry, whether to get yourself writing/reading poetry, or somebody else.

Now, personally I'm a bit hit-or-miss when it comes to poetry, both writing and reading it.  Sometimes it works, sometimes it doesn't.  Do you enjoy writing or reading poetry?  What format is your favorite?

(I am fully aware that this is a couple days late, but I've been having trouble accessing LJ...)

I thought I would keep things simple and give you a brain buster to think about and discuss if you wish.

The following stems from the old addage that you should write what you know.


When do you turn reality into fiction and how do you do it without upsetting anyone?

Sorry, this is a bit later than I originally intended to post it.

I have recently been struggling with finding motivation for writing and I know this is a common plight shared by many of us. That being said, I thought I would use it as a topic for this week's Thursday Thoughts. Please share your thoughts with us on the following topic!

How do you stay motivated? Are there any tricks you use to help you break through a writer's block?

I bring to you the first of our "Thursday Thoughts" - a series that will give you the chance to think about and discuss various writing topics with fellow members of the group.

Since tomorrow is July 1, 2011 and there is a big event occurring in the world of writers, I thought I would start our series out with a simple discussion that only requires a small amount of input from you.

This year, the Office of Leters and Light is offerring a second chance to complete a 50,000 word novel in a month. They have dubbed it Camp NaNoWriMo and it will be occurring in the month of July.

I have two questions for you to ponder and discuss this week:

1. Will you be participating in the inaugural year of Camp NaNoWriMo?

2. What are your opinions of Camp NaNoWriMo?
