I have to thank you for the idea of Writer's Bingo.
You will be surprised to learn that I use an adaptation of your Writer's Bingo over here in Beijing China at a university. I give my students blank bingo sheets, put the prompts on the board, and have them write in what they would like to write about. That way it is writer's choice. I collect the bingo sheets so that they forget where they put each item. I only see the class once per week but I ask them to write in their notebooks everyday. When they come to class, the first item of business is checking the bingo sheets I give back to them. Prizes include chocolate, notebooks, pens, books and so forth. We are very limited on books here -- usually the books are the first to go! How heartening to see a college student hug a new book they have chosen (even the young men!)
