Hi everyone. Well only one more week of the class to go and here's the last assignment for those of you that would like to give it a whirl!
WRITE A STORY BASED ON THE PICK 'N' MIX WORDS YOU CHOSE.
THE STORY SHOULD BE WRITTEN ENTIRELY FROM THE PERSPECTIVE OF ONE CHARACTER WHO IS NOT YOUR GENDER. (NB THIS CAN BE VIA THE FIRST PERSON 'I' OR THIRD PERSON 'S/HE' -- BUT STICK TO THAT PERSPECTIVE.)
Any length is OK. I know the working titles sound a bit pulpy, but please don't let this distract you from your distinctive voice and style. The point is to use your chosen THEME + SETTING as strong guiding principles throughout your story. (The real title can come later.)
new beginnings / mosque
disgrace / cellar
celebration / prison
corruption / brothel
revenge / farm
outrage / rubbish dump
regret / laboratory
I got "new love/railway station"
Ps. That's a picture of the first flowers of spring that have bloomed outside my office. Please note the 'Indian' restaurant in the background. The brick building next to it is where I work!
