A writing exercise based on the above title, due to none of us being able to think of anything else...
Hmm. How ironic. This writing exercise title was devised after the four of us had no plans for new writing exercises.
Fifteen minutes. Tick tock. Tick tock.
In fact, while I'm pen-in-hand, I might as well advertise the group. If you live near enough to Manchester Centre and you do creative writing, why not get down here and join us. We're at Costa Coffee in the Arndale Waterstones, fortnightly on Sundays from 1pm. Here's the link to the site:
We'll start the session with a free-writing exercise like this one, and then we'll read them out to see how we each interpreted the exercise.
If you want your work critiquing, bring in 6 copies to dish out to us. Read your work aloud and we'll help you tighten it up and get it ready for publication. If that's what you want. I like to think we're all fair but constructive critics. If you feel you could be too, by all means come and meet us.
Okay. Another six minutes.
Here we go. As we couldn't get a grant from the arts council, we've made a table sign saying “Writers Connect” made out of very elegant torn-off cardboard. So, if it's your first time, you'll know which ones we are.
Remind me that- on the issue of merchandise- I have a few blog cards to dish out. Some of you will recognise some of the entries from previous exercises, that I've typed up.
Is any of this relevant to the title of the exercise, though? You know how much idea I have.
