Snazzy Ideas-Where is Your Muse?

(I publish these Pen's reminders so that others may get ideas to start their own group or equip their currant writers group. If you live far matter you can also write to the prompt and share with us across the miles!)

Christian Writers Group

MONDAY, JULY, 21   at 6:30 p.m. – 8:30 p.m.


Faith Church

2201  42nd Street, Manitowoc, WI  54220

§   Faith Church is located next to Festival Foods

§   Not far from the Manitowoc exit off Interstate 43


Snazzy Ideas-Where is Your Muse?..will be taught by Susan Kinney.

Ideas and inspiration are all around us, but how do you grab your perfect idea out of the mix and apply it to your writing genre? We will investigate methods of obtaining ideas, wells of inspiration to dip your bucket in, and how published authors allow their interest to influence their story, so that they can write best-selling novels. You are invited to share with our group how inspiration grabbed you for a writing project and why that worked for you.

The prompt for this month is, ‘Who was your favorite character from any book or movie and why? Is this character anything like you?’ You may write this prompt in whatever means you dub worthy such as poetry, short story, essay, memoir… Typically a page or two is a good length to bring.


Anyone wanting to contribute to the Holy Tales Project you can email your stories and or poems to Susan Kinney at

Warning you may end up loving to write!

Visit a local shop and bring your coffee or cappuccino with you.

If you have questions leave a message for me on this post.
Let us know if you’re attending, so we can save a seat just for you.

We look forward to seeing you there! May God bless you richly and always as you write for His glory!
