WORKSHOPAnimated image of a firework

This month we are repeating the same workshop we did in October 2011 but with a twist!

This time what ever 3/4  items you got last time you will pass them over to someone else.
Let's see what other story will come out of the same items.

Just to remind you, below is the the info on last months workshop.

Please bring three items to the meeting (preferably small items that can be carried in a shopping bag or handbag).

These will be pooled and redistributed randomly, so that each participant ends up with three different items. These items must be contained in and play a significant role in a story that you will write in the first hour of the meeting, and be critiqued in the second hour.
Eg. Let's say you end up with a picture of a woman, a a red scarf, a pair of handcuffs...then you might write a story in which the woman in the picture is a high class prostitute....she gets a call from a customer called Mr B.....he wants something special....that involves handcuffs and a red scarf....well you get the picture. Of course if you get something like a mobile phone, a comb, and a a pencil.,..it might be a lot of difficult to write a story in an hour using those items

Don't forget to bring pen and paper!
