From this month I thought we’d do something a little different.
Every author needs to keep expanding their skills. We need to stretch ourselves to keep in the best condition. That being said, Liz (my wife) suggested using Story Creation Blocks to randomly select some elements for a short story. The idea is to come at it with no preconceptions, just let the grey matter work it out with just these hints.
Next month I will post my first piece (on or around the 12th). Any comments will be welcome and if others want to post their musings, I will pass on my thoughts.
So how do we do this? Simple.
The Story Creation Blocks are easy to follow.
For me in the coming month I shall write a short piece (around 500 words) using the hints
OLD, HAIRY, CURIOUS, QUIET, JOURNEY, BEACH, SKELETON & HAT
Wish me luck!
