Writing Groups

Filed under: Uncategorized — ccassello @ 11:01 pm

I have been going to meetings of two writing groups. One called “Soon to be Pretentious Writers” meets at the Harold Washington Library every other Saturday. The facilitator gives us a couple of topics to write a warm-up about and we share them or something about them. Then, we go through the library and pick out books that catch our attention and write about them. We spend more time on that. We share in a small group and then with the entire group. But no one is pressured into doing it. Here is a poem I wrote based on just the titles of a couple of books that I chose. I dedicate this to our governing authorities.


Only idiots believe what they’re told,

They are those who are easily sold

On any new upcoming fad or craze

Not considering that they’re just a faze.

Doubters seek proof, they question why

Some people are quick to believe a lie

Show me the truth of what you say.

Don’t think I’ll believe the games you play.
