Creative Writing Prompt

Until we decide on a date for another writing events workshop – Keep Writing. Here is a prompt to try.  A rainy evening. Someone ( Who?) is walking down the street. What time is it? Where are they going? Why? and what happens next? Write a short story, create an atmosphere, a character, a plot.  Enjoy the journey. It doesn’t have to be good! No pressure. Play.


ps. By request I have just added the titles and authors of the 26 stories we published during lockdown in an anthology Blink of An Eye. please keep scrolling down to find it! All proceeds went to Young Carers, 5-18 years old, to give them some fun and respite from looking after adults and siblings. It’s one of our favourite charities.
