“WWW” does not always mean “World Wide Web”. For a small group of writers meeting weekly on Zoom, it stands for “Wednesday Writers Whatchamacallit”. “Whatchamacallit” sums up what this group is all about.
There are many aspects to writing. For an hour each week, we might practice writing limericks, or view a power point about developing deep point of view. Or the meeting may incorporate a question like, “What was the most difficult part of your writing this week?”
Recently that’s exactly how our meeting began. During the hour, everyone contributed to the discussion with suggestions on how to cope with problems they encountered, or shared successful insights that developed during a “writer’s block” moment.
In the past during an extra hour added to the session on the last Wednesday of the month, a guest speaker was invited to share their experiences.
I look forward to these meetings, since the pandemic reared its ugly head last spring. “Zoom” meetings are not the same as interacting with “real” people where you can wander from one part of a room to another to visit and exchange thoughts while drinking that cup of coffee, but it’s the next best thing. And of course another benefit is interacting with others from anywhere. Maybe we should re-name our group to WWWW-“Wednesday World-Wide Whatchamacallits.”
