December’s Virtually Social Event

by Allison Hannah

WCYR ushered 2021 out in style.  While we could not gather IRL (in real life), virtual party-goers  grabbed our hot beverages of choice and took to the Zoom room on December 5th. Many of us enjoy socializing between writing sprints during our weekly WCDR and WCYR write-in sessions and spending time together at our events and training sessions. During the virtual social, we wrote and played together. We started with a short line-by-line collaborative story-writing adventure. We then enjoyed friendly competition when Maaja Wentz facilitated Kahoot games for us. Roderick Turner took us through two writing exercises — we brainstormed lists of words and phrases related to a winter theme, and wrote a short piece using some techniques he taught us — which were both fun and educational.  We shared our writing with each other and received helpful feedback. We left the session full of energy and enthusiasm about the writing year ahead. We are hopeful that we will be able to gather in person for the 2022 social, but even if we can’t, the year ahead will without a doubt bring more fun and fellowship within our strong writing community. Happy New Year to all of our writerly friends.
