The Gather Writing Essential Group (WE) is always in transition.Â The amazing member editors are adding new prompts on a daily basis.Â
- The normal procedure is that you have one week to submit a response to each prompt.Â However, it is fine if you are behind.Â You can still submit your submissions at any time.
Please keep in mind that each editor has their own rules and suggestions on how they would like the submissions posted. These are important so the editor can find your submission. Â Including but not limited to the following:
- Tags used
- Subject lines added
- Theme of post
If you are wondering why a specific tag is need or why a certain word needs to be added in the subject line, it really is quite simple.Â Each editor is only editor for one day a week.Â They need a way to find your submissions.Â The tags and subject lines make them easier to find among the hundreds of posts that have been submitted in the last week.Â Even with the rules that sometimes can confuse a new member:
- Your writing is always welcome in the Gather Writing Essential Group
- Gather Writing Essential Group is the place for writers to connect with each other.
- Gather Writing Essential Group is the place to read short stories, poems and other writing done by the members.Â
Gather Writing Essential Group is your group.Â Please take the time to visit it and see what it has to offer you.

|Monday Writing Essential - July 23, 2012: Survey Says |
Every Monday morning before the garbage truck arrives, it is my chore to wheel the trash cart out to the mailbox and clean out all the junk that has accumulated there during the week. . . .
Â I couldn't find a prompt from Phillip but I am so far behind due to the power, Internet and phone outage in our area that I may have just missed it.Â Â
Please forgive me, if I missed it.

This week we are continuing to focus on track and field. Ninety feet from the long jump pit a race is about to begin. The runners are loosening up near their blocks when we get near. The tension is . . .

Okay, I absolutely love thrillers. They're sooo much fun! I spent my entire teenage years reading a new one every week and sometimes every day. My favorites were Michael Crichton, John Grisham, Michael Crichton, Tom Clancy, and Michael Crichton. :-) And I know I mentioned Michael Crichton's books last week when we discussed science fiction, but his are definitely thrillers. And so very good! I'm just now discovering James Rollins - have started Subterranean and am really loving it. :-)
My first thriller was Jurassic Park. I was eleven years old when that movie came out, and it terrified me. Absolutely and completely. And I became really interested in dinosaurs. Not the cutesy little plastic ones, but ones like those in the movie. Especially the T-Rex and velociraptors. The third book in my series, August Fortress, even has a dinosaur in it. :-)
After watching the movie and having nightmare after nightmare about dinosaurs, I found the book at a local thrift shop and read it eleven times. I still have dinosaur dreams occasionally, but reading the book actually allowed me to learn how to control the content and "scariness" of the dreams. After I finished Jurassic Park, I went on to read all of Michael Crichton's books (except for Rising Sun. Never could get through it).

This Weekâ€™s Challenge:
Using prose or poetry, describe a new world that might exist now, might have existed in the past, or might exist in the future. It can be Earth, one of our planets, or some planet in another solar system, galaxy, or universe.
