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.)
