For nearly 20 years I was a stand-up comedian touring throughout North America, headlining clubs and concerts across the US and Canada.

Prompt Club – January

The new year has officially begun now that we’ve met. It was a great meeting with an (almost) full house, fun group, interesting stories.  I have to say I think the award for best spin on a cliche has to go to the therapeutic chicken Duck-Duck.  We welcomed new member Marsha Blakely.

Please remember to read, comment, and return last meetings stories at the next meeting!  Our next meeting is Tuesday, February 16, 6:00 to 8:00 pm at the Cherry Valley District Library.  Our next prompt is, Murphy’s Law. Tension is all about torturing your protagonist. Take your story to the next level by having whatever could go wrong, go wrong.
