Coffee Chat Writing Project – September 2008

Coffee Chat at writefromkaren.com

Are you ready to submit your blog links?

If you know what to do, please feel free to skip this introduction and put your links into the Mr. Linky script below. If you subscribed to my feed, don’t forget to leave me a comment so I can add another ticket for you to the pot!

If you’re scratching your head, wondering what in the world I’m talking about …

Coffee Chat is a group writing project. A group writing project is when a specified writing prompt is provided and writers/bloggers from around the ‘sphere write a post based on that prompt, post it to their blogs and then provide a link back in a common entry so that others can read their interpretation of said prompt.

It’s also a chance to write a fresh blog post, or posts (perhaps you have blogger’s block?), share the link love, and of course, discover new voices and make new friends. Coffee Chat is also a chance for us to get to know YOU a little better. So, most of the writing prompts will be generic questions about your past, present and (possibly?) future life events. Coffee Chat is a venue you can stop, drink some coffee (or your favorite beverage) and take a moment to appreciate, reflect, and SHARE, your life with the blogging community.

To read the full rules and guidelines, visit this page.

The writing prompts for this Coffee Chat are:

1. What do you remember MOST about being a kid?

2. Long before you met your significant other, what did you picture your future mate would be like?

Write about one, or both prompts (separate posts, please), if you wish.

Your posts can be fiction, or nonfiction – interpret these prompts any way you wish – whatever inspires you.

You have two weeks to write a blog entry based on one, or both, writing prompts. When you’re finished, leave the PERMALINK to your blog entry in the Mr. Linky script. I will update readers periodically with who has submitted their links so far. I will draw two winners September 15th – the first winner receives a $25 Amazon.com gift certificate, the second winner receives a $10 Starbucks gift certificate (I’ll need the address of the second winner as I’ll be actually buying these myself).

Good luck and HAVE FUN!!!

  1. Tick, tick, tick. I know, I know. I’m running out of time. I’ve been jotting down things I want to write about. The plan is to get it posted this weekend. (reference my post about …ah…. procrastination:) I really want to participate, just having a hard time stepping back in time and capturing just what I want to say.

  2. I put my link in Mr Linky.
    This is a great idea and I will love to participate again. I am unfamiliar about adding a feed but would love to if I knew how 🙂

  3. Thanks Berry. I put your permalink into the Mr. Linky script so we can easily find your entry. And I’ve put you down for another ticket for subscribing – thank you!!
