PpWN, Our Group-Written Novel, Has Been Published!

The PpWN  project began in 2016, just after publication of our second WWG anthology (Winter Writes). Six of us from that project got together and began what would be a real adventure in communal writing.

PpWN is fiction, a historical fantasy novel of large scope, like a saga. It's about a chess set named RICHESSE, which was created for the purpose of bringing peace to the planet, one conflict at a time. It was given magical powers by a MAGE, and then set off on its mission. In the course of the book, RICHESSE undergoes internal as well as external challenges that hamper its work. 

Each writer invented his and her own characters and set them in various time periods from ancient civilization, to Persia, to medieval France, to England, and to Medina, NY (where most of the plot takes place). It reaches further via time travel to Nazi Germany and beyond. To aid in moving the plot forward, the plot is divided into a prologue, 5 main sections called "books" and an epilogue.

You may purchase a digital copy of PpWN on Amazon.com. It is listed under the author name of J. Adoube (because six author names on the cover would have been a tad distracting!). And it has chess significance - can you guess?

If you're wondering whether PpWN is a typo, no, it isn't. It's a long story on how that came to be, and if interested, you can read all about it on our  PpWN Official Fan Site.

The fan site, which is still being developed, already contains prequels to the novel, information about our collective endeavor, author bios and much more. We hope you will visit, read, and leave comments.

Fellow Writers,

Until further notice, there are no scheduled monthly meetings of either the  DUNHAM PUBLIC LIBRARY MONDAY NIGHT WRITERS GROUP or PLOTTERS INK (fiction writing group).

Meanwhile, consider joining our online writing group, with prompts for each month here.

We are hoping to regroup and reorganize in the near future. If you would like to help us reorganize, please email us at whitesborowriters@gmail.com. Thank you, and meanwhile, keep writing.

Monday Writers Group Resumes in January 2019

Hello Writers,

We are still looking for a facilitator for this group. Meanwhile, some of us are taking turns leading. Due to the 4th and 5th  Mondays of December being holidays, the library won't be open, so there will be no December session.

The same procedures we previously maintained will continue:
  • Each writer will compose an original prose (fiction or non-fiction) piece of no more than 500 words, and read it in front of the group. 
  • Typewritten, use 12 point font, numbered lines if possible, check your spelling, grammar and punctuation! Make sure there's a TITLE for your piece.
  • Copies of each story should be made ahead of time by each writer (10 is good for starters) to distribute ahead of presenting your story, so that everyone there may read along and make notes for feedback.
  • Constructive, respectful comments are encouraged for each participant.

If you have any questions, please call the library at 315-736-9734.

Unable to attend? Consider submitting your story to our online only writing group.

Hope to see old and new faces there. Keep writing!
