A Spilled Ink Day

On Sunday October 23, 2016, the Spilled Ink club gathered in the Loyola Writing Lounge to play various writing games and to get to know the other writers around campus. We started off with an icebreaker, we do this every week to learn a little bit more about each other. This week’s unique question was, “What’s your astrology sign?”

Moving onto the games we first played Exquisite Corpse, a game where one person writes a sentence to start a story and it is passed along to the other members, the trick is the writers can only see what the previous person wrote and not the whole story. We ended up with some pretty funny stories about murderous cats. Next, we played story cubes, where each member roles a picture dice and verbally incorporates their picture into the story being told. What’s great about these games is that they create bonding between people who may not get to interact outside of the club. Through the games we are given the opportunity learn about each member’s writing style, preferred genre, and much more. Lastly, we did a restriction writing game. We came up with 3 restrictions and each member wrote a 50-word story using the restrictions. This week our stories had to include cheese, a thumb and the ocean. To conclude the meeting we each went around and shared our stories.
