Quoted in the Grove:

They always say time changes things, but you actually have to change them yourself. ~Andy Warhol

Somebody has to do something, and it’s just incredibly pathetic that it has to be us. ~Jerry Garcia

To the wrongs that need resistance,
To the right that needs assistance,
To the future in the distance,
Give yourselves.
~Carrie Chapman Catt

End Quote:
Never doubt that a small group of thoughtful committed citizens can change the world. Indeed, it is the only thing that ever has.
~Margaret Mead

First, the kind of news it is a pleasure reporting. With the end of summer hiatus, old friends have returned to WG with their pazs. Welcome back GaryBob (@NutNut Fountain) and Greymane (**Greyed Expectations**). New member Jhynx (Jhynx’s WordGrove PAZ), and DWade_3 (DW) are especially welcome as new WG members and contributors to our Word Games


Word Games. ’hmm This editor can’t shake the feeling that there’s a better name for our Thurs writing sessions. Without resorting to crass commercialism to excite member interest, this editor would be delighted to hear your ideas

Okay, then, we’ll try it your way. If enough suggestions come in to warrant a vote by members, we’ll put them on the Tally Board, and T$1,500 goes to the winner. Or, a Book, Script or Scroll of the winner’s choice


Plans are underway for a Halloween Party scheduled for Thurs 10/31. It is a costume party. This is your chance to get freaky and have fun with it. Since it takes place on a regular Game night, the party will supersede the Impromptu exercise. Prewrittens are not exempt

There is but one ‘rule’ for those attending. Everyone is being asked to turn off Name Tags before coming to the party. This request will enhance the costumes’ anonymity factor. Changing costumes mid-party is allowed, and should make tracking peeps and buddies all the more baffling … um, intriguing. Altho this cannot be monitored and enforced, those attending will only be cheating themselves of the mystery and the fun to be had guessing who is who. Non-club members are welcome. Invite your friends. The more the merrier

Since Halloween is a holiday tailor-made for unfettered runs of imagination, it would be interesting to see what could be done with Wordgrove’s pier @Cannery Row. If enough join in, perhaps we could open up the pier as a Halloween tour site for others to enjoy. Just a thought


Please note the schedule change for Thurs Word Games. Meeting time has been pushed back one hour to give members more time to polish their prewrittens and to settle down for an evening in WG with the chores done. Please note new time below


Prewritten for Thurs (04/18) 6 pm PT/9 ET is:
Write your own obituary, epitaph, last words, etc

~ReenRen: PW Photo Potentials
Check Ree’s scroll for link to picture she is submitting for possible PW exercise. Eerie



~Jhynx: (Prewritten) 10-03-13
Humans lose to entropy in their failed marriage with digital life; one proto-human remains with the keys of creation in her hand

~Greyman: The Storm and The Story
Poetry precedes the narrative in this stereo-recitation of: The queen and the witch are one; an evil young beauty stealing years from the local children to maintain her ass.ets, losing to her nemesis, Love

~ReenRen: Drown Town
The Queen, focused on beauty’s horizon, missteps and falls into the fetid muck below (note: do not use this occasion to practice your spoonerisms); she resorts to defense and building up walls against possible attack


Impromptu: Write a fortune cookie
The brevity of this week’s exercise allows WG Nutters to speak for themselves, obliquely. Fun premise, interesting results

You are love always in future to be touch and joyous!

You don’t miss her. You miss who you wanted her to be.

Do not wait upon your destiny for your destiny awaits your next choice.
