Copy and learn

This week’s prompt by Jude

There’s a bookshop of remainders in Park Street, Bristol where someone has drawn pictures of authors on paper bags, which are all pinned up behind the counter.

The drawings pictured here show the great writers,Raymond Carver and Kurt Vonnegut. Find stories by them online and write out the first paragraph. Now write another paragraph in your own words, but use the same length of sentences and a similar  style. See where it takes you.

If you want to write in the company of others in fun and friendly groups, there’s just one place on our four week series beginning on 21st September and there are five places on our Art as Inspiration group.
