This Week’s Writing

  • The Cone of Doom – the latest part of Eric‘s novel. Hazel is asked to come to the police station to make a statement.
  • Paradise Park and Family Photo – two pieces of micro fiction from Stephen. Paradise Park was only 50 words long while Family Photo was slightly longer at 99 words.

An Exercise

As we didn’t have that many pieces of writing this week we finished the evening with a quick exercise. Using a couple of Chris’ pictures as inspiration we asked everyone at the meeting to write for five minutes. We got everything from a family argument to mysterious bridges via descriptions of nature and dying flowers.
