I heard about this just today from Virtual Writers' World. I've never been, but it seems like a great idea!
The Writers’ Dash (#writersdash or #dailydash on Twitter) is a 15-minute free writing exercise held on Twitter, Facebook and Second Life® every weekday. At 5:30am & 5:30pm PDT we share the word prompt on our social media channels; the live event begins in Second Life® at 6am & 6pm PDT. Write whatever comes to you. Don’t fixate too heavily on what you are writing and disengage your inner editor – the key is for you to get the words on the page first; you can worry about editing later. If you are attending the live event in Second Life® there will be an opportunity for you to show your work to the other participants after the 15 minutes are up. If you are unable to attend the live event you can share your work on our blog. Just look out for the prompt post and leave your dash piece as a comment.To read the entire article, click here: Writers’ Dash: Tuber
The writing prompt on June 28th was "tuber". Sounds fun. Quirky.
By the way, I'm out of the office today, but will be back tomorrow. I hope everyone has a terrific long weekend!
