Thrilling Stories for Girls

Thrilling stories for girlsThis week’s prompt by Jude

The year’s 1929 and in the flyleaf it says Josie’s Aunt Gertie, gave her this book for her birthday on 12th January. Write a story about something thrilling that happened to a girl called Josie in 1929. Here are  two random Wikipedia facts for that year. Martin Luther King was born and Herge’s Adventures of Tintin first hit the comic strips in Belgium.


Haircuts, hairstyles, hair disasters

This week’s prompt by Jude


Sketch by Jeanette Sheppard @jinnysketches


Trips to the hairdressers make good story material. Write about the different hair cuts and styles  you’ve had. Write about those memorable hairdressers who wielded the scissors.  Have fun. There’s bound to be one hair disaster in your life.

And for inspiration – Julian Barnes’   A Short History of Hairdressing, a story in three chapters, describes three visits to the barber’s over a life time. It’s a great read. Buy it here for £1.49 on Amazon.
