Used car

This week’s prompt by Jude.

Was your first car new or used?  Describe the car and its particular features. Mine was a Morris 1000 split-screen. Moss grew on the window seals. The driver’s door kept flying open. It had a crank-handle for when the battery went flat. Write about an adventure you had when you owned your first car. Adventures can be large or small.

(Want to get into print this year? We’ve two spaces left on our March workshop talk  on self-publishing by the Self Publishing Partnership Bath and, at the moment, several on our April talk by children’s writer Tracy Darnton  on her Road to Publication. Book soon.)

Rain starts play

ko-unThis week’s prompt by Jude.

I just saw renowned Korean poet Ko Un at a poetry and wine festival in Slovenia – a very seductive combination. A marvellous writer, Ko Un, now in his eighties, is also a zen master. This quote on the ‘poetry wall’ at the festival cafe, in Slovenian and English, might inspire you to write, whatever the weather. Set the timer for half an hour and see what happens.

Want a further stretch? We’ve a few places left on our Write Outside the Box session at Hall and Woodhouse Cafe next Tuesday, 13th September. Contact us asap, if you would like to come. Friendly group, fun exercises.
