April Writing Prompt: How do you measure success?


You can start by writing (or substitute your own words):  

I measure success by how many times I have been able to forgive . . .
I measure success by how often I turned agitation into a sense of calm . . .
I measure succcess by the number of people I have been able to make laugh . . .
I measure success by the changes I have made that are good and healthy choices . . .
I measure success by how well I guard against the need to judge others  . . . 

As always, if this prompt does not suit, bring what your muse inspires.
GUIDELINES FOR READ-AROUND
  • Each writer gets 10 minutes.  She may use this time however she pleases; to read or to read and get feedback on her work.  The time may not exceed 10 minutes.
  • Please practice your reading before you come to the Circle.  It helps those listening to your work and provides for more valuable feedback.
  • This is NOT a critique session.  Critique is offered the last Saturday of the month from 9-11:30 a.m. at Wellington Square Bookshop.


The Circle is a supportive place where we share our love of writing and our work in a spirit of camaraderie and goodwill. The read-around is a lovely exercise of reading aloud what you wrote in an intimate setting while "test-driving" your voice and your work.  We also discuss writing techniques and publishing options.
