Writing Adventure Group #23: Ripples

Join the Writing Adventure Group! All writers/bloggers welcome. Newly updated Group Guide here. And don’t forget to take a peek at last week’s fantastic participants!

WAG Topic #23: “Ripple”. When our characters walk their worlds, the world reacts. So for this week, look only at reactions. Observe a person and describe the reaction of the world to them. What can you tell about them based solely on the reaction of others? What kind of impression are they making on the world, the environment, the people around them, even on you? What is changing (even subtley) because of their existence? Are they aware of it? No Rules! Now Write! (Now, instead of a deadline we have an ending date. You may add links to this list between now and 25 MAY 2010.)

How to be added to the “results”:

  1. Write whatever you like based on the theme suggested & post on your blog anytime between now and the ending date.
  2. Return here, and at the bottom of the post, click on the link that says CLICK HERE TO ENTER and paste the direct link for your WAG post (not just your main blog link, please). IN THE LINK TITLE FIELD, PLEASE INCLUDE YOUR NAME.
  3. To add the “blog hop” listing to your own blog and allow your readers to find other WAG posts on the same topic, return here, go to the LinkyTools section, and click GET THE CODE HERE. Cut and paste the javascript in the box into the HTML section of your blog. (Some blogs do not allow javascript. If this is the case, you will have to simply link to the Instruction post.) In hosted wordpress blogs, you MUST paste in HTML mode for the code to work. If you have any questions or problems, please write to me!
  4. Use Twitter, FB status, myspace, your blog, etc to announce your own writing adventure! On Twitter, use the hashtag #WAG to designate Writing Adventure Group posts.
  5. Invite your writing friends to join! All writers/bloggers are welcome.



  1. Okay, I am a card-carrying member of the “J.M. Strother NonCompliance Club”. I broke the rules, thinking it was just a ripple effect in general.

    My bad. :)

  2. No worries, Sue! The idea is inspiration, not compliance to some rules (which we don’t really have anyway!)

  3. Really liked this exercise/topic. Excellent idea and something I’m going to think about more in my writing. Thanks India.
