OK, I'll give it a go :-D

I'm happy to be more of a reader though for the moment, as I'm going to be quite heavily involved in the upcoming Brighton Festival in May. After that, I should have more time, gardening permitting!

Forgive me for not contributing yet, have been busy finalising the decorating, clearing up, reframing photos to go back on the wall, supervising the resident electrician as he puts new lights in and cooking tonights dinner. I will have a look later and see what I can do.

Hi BC and Ann ~~~~ everything's well now thank you :-D ......

Typing and multi-tasking is such a drain and a chore :-| admire Houdini even more now,than ever ;-)....but typing plays havoc with the toes not to mention playing 'keepy uppy' :-0

Dizzi she sounds a very determined and feisty character. I guess that you take after her in personality. :-)

thanks Jan, can I add a few more as well as the poets don't normally do scenarios. When they write!!!

Suggest you attempt Jan's first as I don't want to 'hog' the limelight. If anyone wants to know where you can get these scenarios they are from the fiction squares in the magazine called Writers forum. I don't throw a dice but get OH to give me numbers and use pieces of paper with numbers on if he is not around so that I can't make the scenario 'fit' my own ideas.

AnninGlos

AnninGlos Report 23 Jan 2012 17:48

I have just sent out one using Jan's scenario.

Thank you all for your contributions, just catching up. A bit like Rose at the moment. The stories are coming in thick and fast and enjoying each one and I thank you for sending them to me.
I have been away for my birthday, and will send you soon my little poem I wrote this weekend.
If I don't answer personally, please rest assured I have read, digested and enjoyed !

It is so nice to have new input into our little group :))

Maggie xx :-)
