Happy Tuesday, Quillers and Thrillers!
If you are new to Quills and Thrills this week, you need to turn in your Ten Commandments of Digital Citizenship pledge and signed permission form before you can publish anything online on behalf of the club.
Don’t have the Ten Commandments of Digital Citizenship permission form signed yet? No worries, you can still create the tools needed to build your only presence and set them aside until you get the permission form signed.
Do your parents prefer that you refrain from publishing your writing online? No problem! You can still participate in the writing prompts and keep a journal!
Figurative Language Throw Down Challenge
We had a four-way tie last week! Let’s see who will win this week’s challenge!

New Experience: Zip, Zap & Zop
Let’s think of how you all as writers can work as a community with one another. We have a great community building ice breaker. This is named Zip, Zap & Zop. This game will serve as a useful tool to learn how to work with your fellow peers. Each one of you will stand in a circle and one person will start off pointing at another person shouting Zip, Zap & Zop. You must clap your hands as you say one of these words and then point to the opposite person to keep the game going.
The Prompt: What’s your voice?
What’s your voice when it comes to your own writing? Is it male, female, or something in between (animal)? How do you think your voice sounds? If you could describe your voice as a writer, what might your voice look like? After you practice writing what your own voice sounds like to you write a story with a character who’s describing what your voice looks like.
That’s All, Folks!
