Shout out to John “Dagger John” Hughes for letting us crash at his place for the night!
I couldn’t take pix of the meeting (my phone ran out of memory b/c of Bono), so here’s a picture of jdjh I found on the googly moogly:
This also showed up
Anyway, tonight’s prompt was setting as character. I brought up East of Eden by Steinbeck, because it rocks and the Salinas Valley has a distinct personality and role in the novel. I challenged y’all to challenge yourselves to explore the personalities of places, and how they effect us.
I hope you guys continue what you started tonight. And all the folks at home, order some Panda XXXpress & give this prompt a try.

p.s. send your cool/finished pieces ready for zine-ing to Emily at email@example.com, & stuff you want to workshop to firstname.lastname@example.org. We’ll add it to the queue.
Special thanx for chilling in the heat.
Our prompt was six word stories.
Try it out on your own if you couldn’t make it. Try it out again even if you could, and did.
It’s gr8 to exercise the art of distilling your thoughts. It WILL improve your poetry or prose.
Check out these dope 6-word-stories by famou$ authors after the jump!
