WAG the Dog (OK, it doesn't make sense, but I'm trying to be creative!)

This week's WAG participants:

How to Join the Writing Adventure Group
Iain Martin
Nancy J Parra
Lulu - People Watching and Saving Lives
Jesse Blair
Nixy Valentine

The Writing Adventure Group is on Facebook. Join us there too, and get weekly reminders delivered to your inbox so you never miss an adventure.

Next week’s Writing Adventure:

“WAG #4: Do You Hear What I Hear?” So often, our brain filters out the sounds we hear every day, but sounds can make a story so much more concrete and help your readers feel like they’re really there in a story. This week, go out, sit and listen. (Close your eyes if that helps!) Let your attention move from the obvious sounds to the subtle ones. Try to take in the sounds you usually filter out, whether it’s voices, traffic, children, the hum of overhead lights, or whatever. Write a short description of the sounds and your experience, especially anything unexpected.

Post the results on your blog, and read this post about the group for information on how to notify me so your post will be properly included in next week’s list. (Note, please include WAG #4 in the subject heading and tell me how you want your name to appear please!)

Deadline: next Tuesday, March 24th.
